This guy's shop is truly amazing. Very clean and usable. The equipment is pretty darn cool, especially since it's all in use. I would love to see this shop in person. :thumbup1gif:

I've watched about a 1/2 dozen of his videos. Very interesting. Reminds me of visiting my Grandfather who was a machinist at a textile mill. They had electrified the plant by then but all of the ~100 year old equipment was still driven by overhead pulleys, jack shafts and flat leather belts. The textile equipment manufacturers were long gone. They actually had parts cast and then finished machined them or made parts from scratch to keep the equipment running.

Great video, makes me really appreciate electricity and electric motors.
Back then you did a lot of work before you did the actual work.
Now, just flip the switch and get after it.
