Chet Le Baron started a small machine shop after World War II, specializing in hot rods and dirt racing. Chet designed an early quick change gear box that bolted onto the front of an Early Ford banjo rear end. This rear was used in both dirt track racing and in time trials around the globe. While racing was always Chet's passion, he transitioned the machine shop from gears for his rear end, to gears for printing presses. The business boomed and the love for racing and cars took a back burner to life and a successful business. Today we sat down with Lloyd, Chet's son, to talk about his father and the 1900's foundry his father ran the business out of.
