I thought some of you guys might like this video, it was posted on the mig welding forum.

Truly astonishing how these guys used to work  :jaw:
Tools: Boxford CSB lathe, Chester 20v mill, Portamig 185. Lots of ideas, No motivation.

Bigbadbugga  Great film clip thanks for sharing, mention engineers today and all you get is mostly electronics, mind a group of steam enthusiasts have in the last few years built a brand new A1 peppercorn named Tornado (very popular) with I think more in the pipe line.
