    I would love to go back in time and watch them turn stocks for a few hours. Thanks for all the photos you have posted over the years. Gary P. Hansen

    What I want to know is who wears a tie and vest while working a lathe? The picture must have been taken on a Sunday.

    There was a day when you dressed like that if you worked in a profession. In those days running machinery would have been construed as a classy job. Now-a-days you got CEO's wearing jeans on "dress down Friday" Pretty classy huh?

    By the way, there's an excellant chance that tie wasn't a clip on! So what that means is that because the Aloris type tool holder wasn't invented to a few years later, any marks on this guys cheeks were not put there by Aloris

    Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

    It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.
