    Default Four generations of machinists use the same tools...

    In an old machine shop in Abilene, TX, the fourth generation of machinists are still working on the same tools brought in by the first generation.... and three of the generations still work in the shop.

    I was surprised to see the machines running off a jackshaft. The last time I saw that, it was at the MMOGTA show in Oakley, Michigan.
