    Once I saw a vertical lathe "King Machine Tool" from Cincinnaty Ohaio. It was obtained from USA during WWII. The lathe was in good condition, and still working.

    Can anyone supply details about the engines piled up at the tank repair plant? Looks like maybe 2 kinds.

    Wow. That tank plant blows my mind. Anyone able to read it? Know how long ago they were taken?

    That would be one cool ass experience.

    Best guess is T80 variants waiting to be scrapped / reduced to produce. If so engines most likely gas turbine power-packs. Similar looking, but smaller, T72 has a V12 and those don't look very V12 like.

    And then I look at the numbers for the causalities in wars like World War 2... a very proud and noble country... a very raw deal on a lot of things.
    Soviet Union started WW II with their ally Germany and they never had any problems butchering their own people (sending bare-handed people against machine guns).
    So, if you read history books you will see that reality was a great shame.

    But sad to say, you don't have to go so far to see pictures of old abandoned plants like these. Hamilton,ON many abandoned steel plants.

North Carolina lost the GE plant, I forget which town, but it looked similar when we moved the old machinery out of there.
    We brought a Russian CNC gantry mill that was retrofitted with new electronics and refurbished from Hamilton,ON to Wisconsin. It took 5 semi loads to get it down there and the customs invoice was 5 million dollars. After they were done unloading, I asked the guys at the shop what they would use it for, they told me they were going to make the new Lincoln dashboard molds as its first job.
    This mill came with 12 large binders with detailed drawings of every single part. You definitely could of made a new one with the detailed drawings.
    Very true. I just got back from a trip to Detroit. Sad to see.
