Many people will want to start by using the search-bar to the left, or browsing The Manufacturer Category page.
This wiki wouldn't exist without the kind efforts of GarageJournal.com, PracticalMachinist.com, VintageMachinery.org, JalopyJournal.com, nor Alloy Artifacts.

Like-minded sites for web-travelers
If you like this type of information, you may also enjoy:
When I began this site sometime in ~2008 I did all the reading and research myself just to pass the time. As my work grew busier and my family grew I found less time to keep things up to date with updates from the many forums I frequented.
In February of 2017 I was notified of defaced pages to the wiki that had occurred only shortly after I had made it possible for people to create accounts and perform edits. While I had concerns about people not keeping the data as organized as I'd intended I did not foresee the amount of utter spam that was posted. Shortly after, I took the site down and saved the backups of the data I had originally. I had many people reach out to me from forums and e-mail asking how they could help - and frankly I just didn't know how.
On 12/17/2018 this site was kindly retrieved from backups created on 02/11/2017. This was done by the kind folks at Miraheze.org who are now hosting this site. I know since it was last online some other sites have sprung up with new information. I hope that both myself and the community will be able to protect and grow this site now in its new location.
I am still re-uploading some of the > 500 images.
