That is a huge English wheel!
Cool post! I see nothing wrong with this thread. Didn't this company just give away a cool piece of shop machine for the winner of tech week? Jeeeezzzz what did you guys give away?
A box and Pan brake
Here are some pictures of old lineshaft machine shops. Boy, what OSHA would think of this now. Notice the ages of the kids in the first pic. I can't imagine what the noise level in these shops must have been.
those pics are nuts!!!! i work in a machine shop and im going to print those off and keep them in my tool box so the next time someone complains about "how hot it is" i'll show them those lol
Yes, Watson Hegner is a dealer of ours.
So I called Shane at Baileigh yesterday about a deep throat (get your mind out of the gutter) shrinker/stretcher. They have one on their site but no stand w/foot operation. Shane said to wait as they have something coming out in a few weeks. He didnt elaboarate on exactly what it was but he didnt pressure me, instead he was straight up and told me to save my money! He could have just went for the sale. I dont care if he gives a discount or not at least he's straight up and no BS!
If you worked there back then ,wouldn't everyone have just a slight urge to touch the belts when they are spinning! Yoooow!
I met a guy years ago in MPLS that had a bunch of belt driven machines restored and operable in the original building.. That would be cool stuff to have!
They are just kids
Wow, those old machine shop pic's are cool. Spinning belts, open gears and pullys. Some of the workers are wearing ties, looks like a good combination, yeah where was OSHA!
Unsafe child labor.
Anybody have any pics of the old hand held english wheels?
Although I'm not sure of the man. date, is this 'vintage' enough for a lathe?
thats my oldest tool,i payed way to much for this thing,it`s worn out very badly...hate it
Here's one I got a couple years ago. I did a repair job on his boat and he brought me this.
still no clue how to really use it yet but I start classes at the end of the month. This is the first older tool that I purchased but I am always on the lookout for more.
Here is one of my english wheels Danny
Hey now, those look familiar:
That is beefy
My old Atlas, and the Rockwell I just picked
up at a school auction last month.
i wouldnt want to see yer tool even if it was new. gross
All soo cool. I'd love to have some of that old equipment but I would settle for some of those old wood floors.
Danny, is that wheel made from an old bandsaw?
No vintage metalshaping tools to speak of for me...a couple of old hammers and a Heller file. Most of my metalshaping tools have been made by me.
Not just osha, some of those workers are Kids. Man would the child avocates be pissed by that.
I know......those kids should be in school
Maybe they were on work release
