Hi Michael,
Thanks for the information.  I took the oportunity to ask various antique
dealers today if they ever see such a thing as a sheet metal cutter.  Most
said they hadn't, but I will no doubt find better contacts as my search
continues.  I like the idea of cutting metal as well.  Perhaps I better
search the local auctions to see if I can duplicate your success.  Thanks
for your suggestion.
