<Climb onto soapbox>

May I respectfully suggest that we agree to disagree. John, while he
respects and retains some machines, is obviously in it primarily for the
money. (I can't think of too many folk who can afford to take a year
leave of absence without some kind of financial input.) It is totally
apparent that many of you do not agree with his approach.

On the other hand, he has offered certain opportunities to members of
the list to obtain parts or machines that he purchases in the course of
his business. I am willing to take this as a good faith offer to help
those who collect for appreciation of the machine rather than for
appreciation in value. I do not think that taking advantage of his
offer really compromises the collecting for appreciation attitude, nor
endorses his 'it's a business' approach.

Perhaps we can all gain something from it.
