[DML] Re: Broken torsion bar question, answer?

When we talked with Barrie Wills at the Houston Open Houston he 
mentioned that he had the opportunity to see the machine and was 
amazed at the sheer size ofit.  Apparently it was made specifically 
for making the torsion bars.  His thoughts were that given its size 
it would very unlikely that someone would have moved it or stored it 
all these years and incurred the expense of doing so.  He believed it 
to be more likely that the machine was probably scrapped out.
