This Utube video is 14 minutes but should be of interest to all wood workers.

When I first came to work for Jackson Furniture Industries in Cleveland, TN, they had just the year before vacated their original building. It was built around the turn of the century, maybe 1905 or so. It still had the DC motor driven wheel system on all the sanders and some of the saws, and the building was heated with a huge brick steam furnace, fired with scrap oak from the furniture frames.
In October, 2004, the Cleveland, TN fire department and ambulance service visited the Jackson ownership and told them they had until the end of the year to vacate the building, or the fire department and ambulance people would no longer respond. Enough was enough – even though Jackson was a major employer, the building was a death trap. One turnaround staircase from the third to the second to the ground floor, open chain driven conveyors, single drive multiple machinery, not to mention the huge fire trap of a furnace. Jackson had a lot of new-ish buildings, so they agreed and closed it down on December 23rd, 2004. Almost everything was left intact.
I did manage to get a huge pallet of really nice white oak out of it before vagrants managed to set it on fire a few years later.

I’d seen that before but enjoyed watching it again! Whoever put that shop together was very ingenious!
