Great video.  Guys like that are fading away fast in America.  I think its a shame.

Thanks for posting. Great to see the old machines being used by people who love to operate them. Skills and knowledge passed down from one generation to the next. Awsome video.

Sadly makes me realize the things and people that have passed just in the time I've been here. The raditor, auto electical, machine shops and even the local service station are all gone for many of us. I even remember when nothing was open on Sunday, and when I brought a pound of coffee it was16 oz  :(

 

P.S. Thanks for the link GP

When I was 11 years old I watched my neighbor, who was in his 60's and owned a local machine shop, pour babbitt bearings in an old line shaft. From then on I was hooked on old iron. I wish I could have worked for him for a few years.

  What a coincidence!! I grew up in that area. My Dad had a cable tool drill rig at the time and Tom's father did all his cable tool machine work. Brought back some memories. Thanks, GP!!
