I thought about starting a page on facebook for only photographs of lineshaft driven machine shops but I think I will post them here instead. If anyone else has some lineshaft machine shop photos I would like to see them here as well.

Here is the first, a small planer running a job, no other info.

A link to a page I made for the Fay & Scott company, Dexter ME circa 1900-1910, a few pics from later on. I visited the Dexter Historical Society in 2012 and scanned these pics from a photo album various folks related to the enterprise had put together over the years. Some were saved from the dumpster during cleanout of the old building.

What a treasure trove of machining history. I can almost smell it when I look at those photos.

I thought it interesting to see what I assume to be the gauges they used to set up (or verify) the planers to get the bed V's correct at Fay & Scott. This a zoomed in view of the wall from Slide 25 from Greg's post #3.
