Odds And Ends 3

So I got a few minutes this morning, here are a few odds and ends pictures from some of my picture files, collected from around the web.

Here is a picture of a die to forge a mouse on the power hammer, to accompany the bear in this post Forged Bear For My Future Gates. You can go into production with this set-up, ha, ha.

Remember in the previous post I said a treadle lathe is not really an option in a small shop, well here is a picture I found that say's, "I am full of it" ha, ha. This compact treadle lathe is incorporated into a tough little bench. Not a great picture, but you get the idea.

Remember this post From Engine Block To Engine Mill. Here are a couple more pictures of the concrete lathe that I mentioned in that post.

Just Checking In

So I have a bit of time on my hands. I have been working on a few files today and came across a few interesting pictures. Figured a few people here might like the share.

I call this one "Nothing New Under The Sun". If you recall I posted the one on the left in a previous post.

I call this one "Heaven". This was commissioned for a Ford Motor Co. advertisement in a 20's Popular Science magazine. The children in the picture make it idealized, some might even say soppy but I love the color and the style. Maybe a new future avatar.

This one can only be called "How trusting are you?" 

So how trusting are you? Are you sure your buddy isn't going to step off that ladder, to get a better look, when the nice lady with the low cut top goes strolling by. lol, lol.
