          We called our a turtle as well. It seems I bought ours used in the early 70s. It was a real power house but after we got a couple of the 300s it was never used again. It seems after storing it for a decade without use I finally dropped it in the dumpster. (I didn't know Rick then)

              From the design of the jaws I am gonna
              say mid 60s, but maybe as late as 1972.

              I too remember using one in the mid 70s
              and it looked to be about 15 years old then.

                that's a model #200 or was it a #400 i think 200

                i think the late 60's at best. i doubt it was around in the 70's.

                i bought my buddy steve a model 270 and his guys love it. it's a 700 on a tripod with a 300 chuck. portable and you use the hand dies on it.

                wish i kept it

                      It is an old model 400. The newer model 400s had the speed chuck.
