Most of your power tools bolted in one area.

Doesn’t appear that safety was an issue at the time with this design !

Len,

That’s almost ancient! Glad we didn’t have OSHA back in those days, lol. Seriously, I’ll bet they did some great work with that setup.

Hi Ken , Yup , Ol’ Lefty ran the planer/ jointer and Stumpy ran the saw….Popeye worked the grinder for a while as well. : )

I have it on good authority that the guy that ran this set up was named STUBBY!

Hi fredf , I’m seeing four stations , but no lathe , just the power transmission assembly.
I’d love to check this out , but Northfield is quite a ride from here : )
Maybe I’ll send them an email asking for clarification.
Have a great day !
