    I never tire of looking at factory tours. Not a computer in sight. That is if you don't count the human operators of the machines. They were working on some big lathes there too. The wife and I went through the Ipswich Railway Workshops in May. I have a photo of the wife standing in front of a Cincinnati Mill, it was well over her head in height
    Just do it!

    Kind regards Rod

    Thanks for posting this Factory Tour. Many good memories there!
    And my head I'd be a scratchin'
    While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
    If I only had a brain.
