      They only make halftones--not line engravings. And the halftones generally
      are of very poor quality by modern standards. Be *very cautious* of any
      unused nitrate plates stored in the fireproof vault on the lower right hand
      side. They may be in a state of decomposition at this point and could
      easily explode or cause a major fire should they come into contact with a
      match, cigarette or other flame. Your attempt to refurbish and operate this
      machine may involve more potential risk than reward in an uncontrolled
      environment.

      Cool looking tubes inside, though.

      Just my .02,

      I bought the following to restore more as a challenge and was wondering
      if anyone has used one. It is a Fairchild Scan-a-Graver made by Fairchild
      Graphic Equipment in Plainview, NY.
