Where I live in Iowa, we once had quite a machine tool and manufacturing industry. I was attending our local "Threshers Reunion" last week and the grounds where the event is held has a variety of early machine tools. It's very interesting. Pictured above is the first example of a Boring Mill. Yes, it's original. I was quite amazed by this thing . . . and didn't even know it was about 7 miles from my house.
