From Maine to Yonkers

Picked up this Whitney S-290 28" single surfacer from Mr. Emery n West Paris, Maine.  He is the second owner and purchased the machine from the Penley Clothespin Corporation, which closed in 2003.  Mr. Emery remembers coming across those Penley clothespins in Vietnam when he was in the service.
