Vet turns military surplus into dog tag-making vehicle
Quad City Times - December 06, 2011
Long since retired from the Air Force, Nelson still has a great appreciation for military equipment and found what he needed for his mobile dog tag-making business/hobby through the U.S. government surplus site GovLiquidation.com. Nelson purchased a "deuce-and-a-half," or 2 1/2-ton truck, a modified military maintenance box and a communications trailer and made modifications to suit his needs. He acquired a pair of vintage Graphotype machines made by the Addressograph Multigraph Corp. that look sort of like a typewriter and are used to stamp out the dog tags.
