That's where the parts are coming from. He is very knowledgeable and 
helpful. George informed me that the screws I was looking for are not 
necessary. Evidently the holes were originally for use when the machine 
was crated.

He just emailed me with prices. They should be in my hands in a few 
days. Evidently he doesn't mind doing this sort of work on Sundays. That 
gives me more time to get the finish worked up a little nicer. It was a 
horrible mess, but now I have some spots where I got a little carried 
away with removing old shellac and the grain is coming through. 
Fortunately, shellac is very forgiving.
