Just want to say I appreciate all your help, incredibly quick responses, and the great machine. The 9p has been “in the family” since new when my uncle purchased it at Vern’s Atlantic in Enfield, CT. He passed it along to me when we bought our home in 1990. Has needed nothing except a belt or 3, some grease, and turning the hammers. Looking forward to passing it along to the next generation and I have no doubt it will be humming along.
