Long story short, I found a well maintained SS 7 here in NC and took delivery from an honorable gentleman who was the original owner.
Heres the space-the SS is crammed against the wall while I try to spruce things up.
A couple days later, things are looking a bit better !
One more pic of the tool-really in great shape for a 30+ year old machine-kudos to the original owner-I hope I can maintain it for another 30.
Looking forward to starting her up and learning what I can from you veterans out there.
