Teh Squeaky Wheel
A thread without kitties might as well be dead.
Happy Middle of teh Week Day, GN!
The SoCal mudslides are bad news; I know they could have been far worse, but still…
Glad there’s some dry weather for at least eight days to get some clean-up done.
Roofing-related stuff certainly got hopping yesterday; I’d expect more of the same the next day or two. (Nothing big thus far, but we’ll see what happens once immediate issues are dealt with.)
Time to consolidate and organize our to-do list; whee!
Hendey stopped making machines in 1962 and made parts until the 70s. They are still out there, not surprising given the quality.
Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Mac!
I’ve been wandering around the link Mac sent -- fascinating! Thanks, Mac!
This is a similar project by Monarch from 1938. I did not find it as interesting but did look as I have worked on a big Monarch lathe. A real beast, massive, powerful, and accurate. A lot of these old machines still in service.
I thought you might find it interesting with the engineering in your background. I just found many of those pictures jaw dropping and very humbling.
