great photo, great photographer - i like the contrast, full black through to white, kinda like a industrial Ansel Adams! where are you coming up with all of these?

Looks like a real beauty. I bet they were real proud of it back then. Quick change gears and all.

Easy now . . . I still use an 18x48 circa 1919 in my shop eveyday http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif I do have the overhead 4 speed gearbox and motor that drives the belt. Built like a tank and still makes all the parts I need to make in my shop. The clutch takes some getting use to since its cone style and you rotate a knob to engage the feeds.

I often think while running it if only it could talk and tell me all the various parts its made over its life? I think it would be interesting to know where its been, but then again I have it and it works and thats the main thing.
