The rolled up one came off my Logan 8" shaper and the other one is from threading on my 10" Rockwell lathe.
I run 'em pretty hard...

Them there is magic chips that come off allready rusted, or they are a memento from a time in the not too near PAST. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//tongue.gif http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Wow- I wish my lathe would chip off 1$ bills like that... You must be turning a roll of singles in your chuck?? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

The little chip looks like it came off of an old wheel lathe for turning train wheels. I have a piece of one of those in my toolbox.

Actually the big one came off a planer that was used to make railroad switch parts back in the day. The smaller one was found in the pan of a 32" American lathe. My boss has saved them for years and figured you guys would get a kick out of them. Heavy buggers... Imagine cleaning up a big pile of those shaper chips or getting whacked by one of those red hot dudes as it flung across the shop http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//eek.gif
