Most of your power tools bolted in one area.

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 !
