A friend recently found this shot glass in his late father's house and gave it to me; knowing I would probably appreciate & treasure it. I think it's very unique & special and indeed will treasure it.

His father was as an engineer for the Dover Corp. (elevators) from the 50's through 1984 and we assume picked this up at a trade show or convention. I tried to do a panaramic merge in P/Shop to show the complete engraving on the bottom edge but failed. It says "(XLO) 1955 Machine Tool Show (XLO) X-Cell-O Corp. Detroit." If it could talk I bet there'd be some tall tales told.;)

I'm not sure how safe it is to down my libations from a bare aluminum cup but I did promise to toast his father and toast him I shall!

WoW!
Beautifull!
And safe, as long as an acidic beverage is not left in it for a length of time.

Nice cup! Personally I've been looking to find a right angle adapter for my XLO mill, I figured that's what this was going to be about. :)
