Trying to get one more thin thin elgin auto out of the to do pile. Anyone who has gone down this road knows how hard it is to get parts as most of them fail in the same few spots.
When they work they are pretty awesome.

Progress.
I was able to cobble together to assemble one more working 760.
I'm a happy guy. Almost ready for the wrist test.
Sometimes you have to talk nicely to them. Sometimes you have to berate them into submission.

Here she is ready for her test run.
I have one more non runner incoming. I'm hoping I have what it needs.

Love the Lord Elgin! :!:

I'm going old-school right now: an 18-size Illinois Grade 69, from 1913.

This one needed neither coaxing nor berating, but I surely know the feeling! :lol:
