Don't know if this has been posted previously, a search for the name of the originator produced no results.
There are a series of these videos maybe some people will enjoy.

I'll bet there weren't any home shop machinists back in those days.

That's a pretty neat shop. Vise on the shaper didn't look like 1925 though:rolleyes:

I saw a number of things that was later than 1925, BUT I'm not going to nit-pick his shop or video. Not one in a million can boast a steam powered shop let alone a line shaft shop. If he needs and uses a few modern tools and equipment to keep the history of a steam powered. line shaft going, more power to him.

Very cool video!

Just this summer I sold off my old flat belt drill press to a local line shaft guy who was going to put it in his collection. He was amazed at the condition and job I did with the drill press and was very happy to get it. He offered for me to come see his shop sometime. I need to get over there and not forget the camera when I go.
