    There is quite a bit of enquiry over C&J lathes......reading the history on Vin Mach..... Carrol went on to make very similar lathes in his later enterprises,under different names.In fact,reading the history ,seems Jameson was a financier who bought into companies and ousted the founders in short order.

    Cutting Oil, and Practice, Not to quibble but I consider the Liberty Ships to have been made not only for Great Britain, but for us too. While the cargo went to GB (and also Russia who was also fighting the Germans along with us and GB), getting this cargo to the allies greatly benefited us too. Without their help we might not have been able to win the war or it would have been a longer more costly (in lives and $$$) war. The Liberty Ships were amazing. Not fancy, but the fact they were standardized and could be built in as little as something like 30 days is just amazing. No one thing won the war, but they certainly made a big contribution.

    I believe it sold for $450. That’s the same price when it was new about 100 years ago
