Steam Powered Box Factory

I would love to visit this place....


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

Gotta love that. I really like those old automatic oilers at the bearings. When I was a kid, in the early 1960's, there was a lumber mill in the town nearby that had a couple of jack shafts running through the building. Every machine had it's pulley on one of those shafts and a big leather belt. When a workman needed to use a machine, he'd throw the belt up on the pulley and start the machine. When he was finished, he'd push the belt back off. The shafts were run by a big electric "dynamo" in a separate building. I used to love going with my grandpa when he needed some kind of millwork run for a particular job. Later they tore it all out and scrapped it. Including countless drawers full of custom made moulding cutters and shaper cutters.
