    Default Beere Precision closing ---Racine, Wisconsin

    96 year old owner and no one to take over the whole operation. Probably more to it but the business had a very long run.

    Looking at the behind the times website, lots of Swiss and multi spindle.

    I wish the story in that linked newspaper was a little more detailed. If you go to their website they had quite a bit of equipment including 31 Acme multi-spindles. Back when I worked for the man in the aerospace fastener industry decades ago in So Cal shops were getting rid of those multis right and left.

    We have two of those Beere tip shears here. Subspindle lathes means they get used infrequently nowadays.
