This machine was originally purchased new in 1993 by the US Navy for use in Hawaii. It was barely used and then mothballed. Newman never did an installation on this machine. When the current owner purchased the machine it was missing the grinder for the helical heads so two "New Helix Heads" were installed on the machine which do not need a grinder as they now have 4 sided turn-able carbide.
