Old Steam Powered Machne Shop - David Richards

Post by cyberbadger » Mon Nov 13, 2017 6:24 pm

I have been watching David Richard's youtube channel which is about his line shaft driven steam powered machine shop.

He has setup up his shop to be outfitted as it might have been in the 1920s.

The lathes, shapers, mills run off wood, a large VFT and single cylinder steam engine.

Part of it is he wants the full experience (good and bad) of running this vintage of steam plant as a near daily experience.

From what he says he's either profitable or close to it.

I really find it inspiring.
