Lew Wackler in Boulder Colorado is very well versed in these
machines. He owns and uses them, knows sources, and
probably most everything else about them. For many years Lew did
work for a Count in NY who was creating Objects d' Art similar to
those made by European royalty in the 18th, 19th and early 20th
centuries. He sells, restores and also offers classes in the use of
these machines. Be forewarned these machines are not inexpensive.
Lew's number is 303.499.7850 - Tell him Rough and Ready sent you.
I have been working on an article for Lapidary Journal about Lew and
his antique straight-line and rose engines. One of these days soon I
hope to have the article finished.
