This is number 36 in a series of videos depicting a 1925 steam powered «job» machine shop that I put together. I try to use only old measuring and machining methods to rebuild steam and gas engines, regular customer jobs, etc. as the only revenue generating steam powered machine shop in North America. Thanks for watching, liking and subscribing. You can check my g+ page for shop news and other videos concerning steam power used in building our country.

People don't even understand how steam made this country and still does. They think gas and diesel are the best, yet these old steamers run forever. Great job on the pullies bet that cast was pricy. I'm looking for a piece of gray iron to make the stabilizer on my little atlas mill and wow for 3" x 24" x 3/4" is near $150. 00 ill be using aluminum or steel.

Hi David the Dynamo looks great it will be awesome when it's hooked up to the old electric installations in your shop and powered by steam you have to make some video of it. Great video cheers Henning

Wow! That Cooper engine is a beast. With all the weight in the moving parts, I was surprised at how quickly it picked up speed. Looking forward to seeing the dynamo in action! Thanks, Dave, for another excellent video.

I really love watching your open belt drives. Perhaps i should send some of those hi-viz wearing time wasters over to you, once they walk into your shop they'll die from heart attack so i can do my job without getting told off being too close to rotating parts ....:-)

Why has no one asked how you managed to get that triple pulley up onto the ceiling shaft. I bet you got Debbie to do it for you.

That dynamo looks interesting. It'll be interesting to see it running and making some juice. Like those forged tools, very practical, you need a tool, make it. That step pulley turned out nice, it'll be easier next time. Appreciate all you've done.

The frozen iguanas are falling out of the trees in northern Florida. You better go way way SOUTH.

Old school saying; history will repeat it self, and I can't wait: real stuff no plastic gears and the so called modern JUNK. I'm still running my 20 heavey 8 foot Greaves Klusman belt lathe, I think what I found is 1918 or before my mainline.s are S.Bend's 9 & 10 A's 1942 war jobs which the 9 is dedicated for theading and the ten is for tapers the Greaves for long shafting. My shaper eats rust (shapers have finnally made a comback) why cause HSS is cheap, then to the big guy Cincinnati mill for finish. sam

That would be a scarf joint on the leather belting, the same as in wood joinery

Very enjoyable as ever Dave. That Cooper engine sure is a beast. Some hard work gone into restoring that. Hope you enjoy the warm weather down south.

G'day Dave a very interesting video that Snow Machine was something else I couldn't get over that huge fly wheel and how «true» it ran. Looking at those lathe tools really brings it home how things were made in shop and could be adjusted to how you wanted the cut. It was a great look into the past especially the pulley you made what a work of art a credit to you Dave. Thank you for filming this it was a great look into how things were done in the old days good to see you again mate regards John.

Always good content your videos. Check out the video of the Snow engine at Rollag, MN. It is impressive to see running in person.

DAVID i have cut way back on all my subs because of health reasons and time allotment. But your channel is still one of my favorites and I do love tuning in and stepping back a 100 years into your shop.

Happy New Year Dave! Thanks for the post. they all are an inspiration to get out to my own shop and make something. My next task is to install the oil wick kit into a Southbend 9A. Please enjoy your winter digs and have a grand year. RichB form Northern California.

Hi Dave,

Thanks again for saving history. We need to be reminded of where we started and how we got here. You provide a great link to the past of machining. Great view of that monster engine. 485 horse today would be at 5-6000 RPM not 120. lol
I bet that step pulley ran into some shipping costs, not to mention what the casting ran.

Have a safe trip down south and enjoy warmer weather.Yesterday was in the 20's today it is 70. Makes no sense to me.

Thanks for sharing,

John
