It's amazing how he can operate a lathe and balance that pipe on the side of his chin at the same time http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gifAlistair

This shot typifies the old-time craftsman at work.They had the patience and skill to do the job right first time.I used to have a picture of the Brockway truck plant,which showed a large number of pipe smokers.The company were very proud of this fact,since patience in manufacture and assembly implies high quality.
Does Brockway still exist?They made some great trucks.Thanks for the pic,Carl.Keep 'em coming. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif
