Default Bullet swaging machine

Not being a football nut, I did a couple of sets coyote hunting yesterday, no luck. I was close to a favorite gunshop, so while in the neighborhood I stopped by. Now I have been going in there about 30 years and thought I had seen and new where all of the old stuff was in there. Well yesterday they had pulled out an old swaging machine.
I have no idea who made it or where it was made. It is old enough it runs with flatbelts. I didn't get any pictures. I should have but didn't want to seem too interested as that makes the price go up some times. Looks like it would need a good cleaning as it has been buried under a shelf for years.

One of the guys there said he had seen it run and used bullets made with it.

Any of you have links or directions to any info on older machines?
Spoke to my tool and die maker lathe mentor. He seemed more interested than me. He has made hundreds of extrusion type dies and is sure he could make dies and heat treat them.

Just what I need another project. If I pass on it and anyone is interested I will give contact info later.

Default Swage Machine

Was it an old Transfer type?
And pictures would be great..
How big was it? Ive seen a smaller
Waterbury Farrel Eyelet-Transfer-Press converted to make 9mm and 45 acp projectiles in the Philippines.. So anything is plausible..
