Holmes 330

I'm not sure why I had to have this 330, but over 40 years ago I had a 220. Looks like it hasn't moved in years, but I think I can get the rust freed up. The 220 was a hand crank only. This 330 can be used with a crank, or with a chain drive PTO. The unit has no crank handle so I guess I'll have to make one, unless someone has a Holmes crank handle they want to sell.

What is serial # on the unit you picked up?

The previous owner power sanded or brushed the paint off the ID plate. If the bottom most number is the serial number, very hard to read is: VT2-717

 

Can you date this unit from the serial number?

The V identifies it as a 330

the T2 should indicate month and year of build but they do not match with build number so you may not be able to read them properly.

And the 717 is the build number.

The 330 was built from 1953 until 1965.

Yours is likely about 1955

I have seen a serial # of 1190 built in 1956

Ours is serial #VI3-1584...shipped in 1963 ;last unit was serial #1654 in 1965.

I saw the listing for the one you bought but the shipping cost was too high to get it out west.
