    I picked this up yesterday. Once cleaned up, it looks like it will be a useable bushing machine. Unfortunately, it came with no reamers or pushers. Does anyone recognize the make? I thought at first Bergeon, but I think there is an L and possibly an H in the barely readable label. I'd like to determine the manufacturer and see if I can find reamers and pushers for my new acquisition!

    Bergeon may be right. Years ago I had an old type Bergeon with black color that looked similar.
    What diameter for the inserts in the spindle?

    Update: I found one reamer tucked in the corner of the box the tool came in. The manufacturer is Bolling. Has anyone heard of them? I can find nothing on the Web. The spindle has a hole diameter of 5mm, while the reamer has a hole diameter of 3.25mm. Perhaps there is some sort of adaptor that is missing to mate the 2? Any thoughts?

    Wow! Perhaps I have the only one in existence? The deceased clockmaker that this originally belonged to was from Denmark. I've noted a Lake Bolling in Denmark?! Any members who are European experts that may have heard of this manufacturer?
