Machinist - A Lone Grinder
Photograph - Hdr Photography
The grinder, the most used, least appreciated tool in the shop. It does the dirty work, smoothing the surface of metal. It creates a shower of sparks, so plenty of space is needed to use it. Right behind the grinder is a lathe with at least two speeds.
Using a few large motors to drive all the belts, all the machines runs off of that. Where as today we have motors in each machine. Because the place is belt driven, it's best not to talk with your hands in the shop, otherwise you could get a slap.
