When one is dealing with antique machinery, finding information, parts and/or specific types of machinery is often a most frustrating proposition. "Searching the World" is an attempt to connect CAMA members who are looking for something with people out on the World Wide Web who may have what they are looking for. This service is offered as a benefit to CAMA members as well as CAMA itself. Individual queries are limited to 3 per CAMA member per 60 days. The query will run for 60 days and then be removed.
