Nice work James. When did you build these? I have just finished the engine lathe and will probably tackle the shaper next. It looks like you used 12L14 for some of your handles. You have to keep that stuff oiled up because it certainly likes to rust.

Jim, was good to see you yesterday and the Holt was a real treat to see in person! The oil pump is a great inprovement over the old drip system. I was wondering if you could post a picture of the whole machine shop, showing the lineshaft and all the equipment. Until we meet again.......keep a cool tool!

The machine shop was built by the same person that built the Hotl.
I'am building a roof structure over the machin shop with a couple lights so everything shows up good. I will also put a engine house to the back and put in a steam engine and stationary engine, these will be for looks only as I will use the dc electric motor that drives the line shaft now.
