The NOS thread made me want to put this up. Mr. Rowe after 47 years in business has decided to retire. He has two daughters who are not interested in the business and thus, production of their products has halted. I ordered some valves for my Shovel from them today, but couldn't get everything I needed. It looks like there is a buyer in the wings, and production will start back up. I'm holding my breath hoping things will return to normal. Rowe has been around all my life producing high quality stuff, and hopefully they will remain. I don't want to see another American institution go down the drain. I, as well as most of you, value high quality American made products.
