Picking up the machine, disassembly and reassembly

I picked the machine up near Munich, from an ex-BMW employe which got the machine out of their apprentice shop. He wanted to use the machine to engrave saluting guns with it, but he found somebody that could do hand engraving of incredible quality, so the machine got obsolete and sold.
Normaly I am very wary if I see a machine thats out of an apprentice shop, tool/die shop, was only used for one offs, and so on. All those machinery dealer stories. But in this case, there was some paperwork, old workpieces and templates that made the "appentice shop" story trustworthy.
After some negotiation about the price we took the machine apart and loaded it into my car - Thats possible with two persons and no crane:

The heaviest part of the machine is of course the column - It went down the stairs into my shop with the help of a second person and a handtruck. In the second picture I already mounted the template table back on:

This is the tensioner for the belt, with its counterweight:

The arm that holds the engraving spindle, together with the pantograph - Note the scraped mounting surface:

Mounted the knee, the arm and the pantograph back onto the machine and checked if the engraving spindle moves parallel to the table. The mounting bracket for the arm is aligned with two tapered pins, so getting it back within good accuracy was not a problem:

This is the cross slide and the t-slot table from the underside. The brown gunk is the original cosmoline-like conservation wax - I cleaned everything before I put the cross slide and the table back onto the machine:

The machine all back together and fully operational:
