grungy machinist machining posts

Interesting Machining Photos from Instagram user: Grungy Machinist.

The LeBlond "Portable Engine Lathe" from the 1930s. It was made in 15", 17" and 19" swing versions and advertised as being suitable for use in "railway workshops, arsenals and battleships." I hope they had a good way to lock those wheels on battleships.

Advertising photo shoot for 9" x 3' South Bend "Workshop" Lathe. Circa 1938. Look at that long chip
