Default Oster pipe threading machine?

Hey guys. I'm a plumber out of Kansas City, MO, and I just got my hands on a very old Oster threading machine for free. It runs great, and I have no problems with it, aside from having no information about it at all. The tag on the side is worn down, and the only text I can make out reads: "Oster Manufacturing Co. 110 Volt Series. Model Number EN. NOS D-114, 328." Any of you guys have experience with the old Oster machines or know someone who could tell me something about this one? Thanks, y'all.

Regarding the intro: I'm pretty new to the trade. Only a couple years. I work for a small shop here in KC. I attend the apprenticeship school. My company does a lot of residential/light commercial construction and/or remodel work. I take a particular liking to gasfitting. When I'm not working all of the hours of the week trying to gain more knowledge and experience in the trade, I play bass in a couple of bands around town. That's about it, really. I have a cool dog, but that's probably not relevant. Ha.

If you are familiar with KCMO, I live in the West Bottoms, and I guess a couple guys came to repair the gas situation in my building a couple of years ago and left the machine and a bunch of pipe behind. I don't know the guys, and I don't know the scenario, but I replaced the flushometer valves in a couple of urinals in my landlord's other building, and he told me I could have it. Now, if I could only find some info about this thing...

Tell us more about the dog.


Oster was acquired by Reed Tools many years ago, I would suggest googling it.
