In the 1920s, small shops and mills were powered mostly by water or steam power. this is #33 in a series of videos made to demonstrate the way machining was done in those days when very important things in the world were invented, produced, improved on, maintained and repaired. Comments, stories, questions and discussion about machine work and steam power are always welcome here. Glad to have you along with our worldwide band of industrial historians.....Dave

OLD STEAM POWERED MACHINE SHOP 35 Steam engine frame base

#35 in a series of setting up and what it might have been like to run a steam powered machine "job shop" in 1925. Earlier videos explain some of the fine points of flat belt steam power from a time when the Zeppellins were roaming over the Atlantic and Linburgh was planning a solo flight. Power was by water or steam by flat belt line shafts, men learned trades as apprentices, great things were built and done. Discussion, questions and comments on old shop work, line shaft power, and stationary steam engineering are always welcome here. Check my g+ page for shop news. Thanks for watching.....Dave

OLD STEAM POWERED MACHINE SHOP 36 Old Methods
David Richards


Published on Jan 10, 2018
This is number 36 in a series of videos depicting a 1925 steam powered "job" machine shop that I put together. I try to use only old measuring and machining methods to rebuild steam and gas engines, regular customer jobs, etc. as the only revenue generating steam powered machine shop in North America. Thanks for watching, liking and subscribing. You can check my g+ page for shop news and other videos concerning steam power used in building our country.
