Historic Model Display of Working Blacksmith's Shop
This model of the Finch Waterwheel Forge that once existed in Devon England is a fully functional model with operating hammers, grinder, band saw, lathe, etc. The diminutive machines are operated via small belts powered by an overhead shaft. The waterwheel on the left hand side of the model also works, and was once part of an English museum display that had been plumbed with a fish tank motor/pump to recirculate water over the top and drive the equipment inside, demonstrating how they worked to audiences young and old. A fascinating model that is a great conversation piece. Measures about 3 feet wide by 16" deep and 18" high (approximate measurements, if you need exact measurement let me know).
This piece is slightly too large for my normal shipping methods so is sold on a CAD (Customer-Arranged Delivery) basis. Shipping charges will be yours to negotiate with your shipper of choice. However, I believe this can ship UPS and can deliver the model intact (at no extra charge) to the local UPS shipping facility where they can pack and ship it for you. Alternatively, you can arrange your own company to perform his service.
