    The length is correct. The screw only need be long enough to allow the sled to be adjusted to max height. Given the height of the sled it not need be full lenght.

    Ok, thank you. There’s not a lot of info on these.

    Thats not from 1890-1900. The adjustable NMC was released in 1915-ish. Before that they had a version that was just a drum that hung from the ceiling with ropes.

    Stammbo, I have been looking at your photos. How much are you asking for the wall pulley system? I can give you my personal contact info if you prefer.

    I’m looking to sell the platform and wall weight machine with Post leather gloves and Everlast kangaroo bag. If anyone here is interested let me know. I believe the wall machine is also from Narragansett.

    Finally got everything checked out. There are no cracks, it was just the light shining through the space between the mounting bolt area.

    Sorry, I shouldn't laugh at that, I understand that everyone has their own area of knowledge and there is so much I don't know that so many could teach me, but that was funny.
    Thanks for sharing that one.

    I totally agree with you, People nowadays need to be spoon fed, I sold one of my swivels and didn't tighten the setscrew on the steel ball enough, so eventually the bag and eyebolt assembly came flying out, I was contacted on what to do, I said I probably didn't tighten the setscrew tight enough and you need to set the eyebolt back into the ball and tighten the setscrew enough so the setscrew digs into the eyebolt threads, The come back was (What's a setscrew ?)

    No problem, finding someone with vast historical knowledge is very rare these days…

    stammbo, please forgive me for changing the subject for a moment but I have to ask something that has been bugging me for years, "Dutchman" what is it that possesses you to gather all this information? I don't just accept it, I check it out and you always seem to right. Sorry, stammbo my curiosity just got the best of me, hope you understand.

    The Wormdrive on my Everlast goes all the way from bottom to top, I wonder why Narragansett didn't go with the full wormdrive, it would've had an even more adjustment level

    That spot that looks like a crack may just be the seam from where the arm attaches to the logo/adjusting platform. Of course I’m out of town and it’s driving me nuts to not be able to check it out.

    As for the jackscrew, here’s a page from 1890’s gym advertising
