    They are superb! Well done. I'd give my right arm for material such as this.

    I like this one in particular, guards removed for the advert, fine,........... but no goggles, gloves, ear defenders........from the days when life was a much simpler and painful place...

    Yes, I like the fact that the open herringbone gearing is right next to the forward/reverse selector lever, 1 slip & you are mince meat!

    "Illustration shows machine with gear guards removed" I guess they did not want humans between the gears and also no metal chips.

    Such large lathes rotated very slowly, so no googles were required. Tungsten carbide cutting plates allowing high cutting speeds were not invented at this time. But with simple hardened steel + flood cooling + low r.p.m. and a large cutting depth they still were able to produce thousands of shells per week like we wouldn't be able to do today with our degraded industry. When China stops deliveries we wouldn't even have electrical light in our factories :-)

    In my opinion work safety was still present in this era and not that bad as some may think. But course not that overdone as sometimes today.

    Picture No:18 is for "Chambon Ltd". Is this the same Company that made EM2 rifles?
