Does anyone have a Minnesota C, circa 1910?  My brother is asking for the bed measurements and the radius for the corners so he can make a box.  Usually he works from my machines directly but my Minnesota is a fiddle base in a cabinet.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The Minnesota C bed size is the same as all Davis' full sized models after 1894 or so.  I get 7-1/8" wide x 14-5/8" long.  Not sure how I'd measure the radius.

I may have a Davis manufactured after the company moved to Dayton.  It has the H cast on the bottom.  The decals are all floral but there is no name on the machine.  It is a shuttle and the knob at the foot of the pillar matches the pictures I've found of the Davis machines.  Thanks, Jon, that should give him a working model.  Trying to load a picture yesterday was a fiasco.
