He takes a disturbing pleasure in wrangling those sausages, for sure.

Otto: Hey! Hey look at that. Look at those assholes over there.
Bud: Ordinary fucking people. I hate 'em!

Bud: Credit is a sacred trust. It's what our free society is founded on. You think they give a damn about their bills in Russia? I said do you think they give a damn about their bills in Russia?
Otto: They don't pay bills in Russia. It's all free.
Bud: All free? Free my ass, what are you a fucking commie? Huh?
Otto: No I ain't no commie.
Bud: Well you'd better not be I don't want any commies in my car. No Christians either.

American cool is the South bend tool room lathe or screw machine, known as an automatic lathe.
I just picked up a 9" South Bend tool room bench lathe with all the extra bells , whistles and tooling.
They turned me loose on one starting in 7th grade, along with all the other boys in South Bend, Indiana. Kids got hurt, some lost fingers, another got scalped when his long hair became wrapped around the center punch he was turning, injuries were common. We were all (grateful) fodder for the mills; Bendix, Sibley, Oliver, South Bend rod and reel, South Bend Watch , South Bend lathe and machine tool company and on and on. Every kid with aptitude for it was guaranteed a job as a machinist. Today they would not let a kid near one of these machines, let alone teach him to operate it.

Good find.
You are right about the things kids miss out on now days.
I took as much wood and metal shop as they would allow me back in the day. Even used extra time slots to sneak in there. Lots of good memories and experience.
One day I would love to come across a nice lathe at a decent price.
Cheers Kirk.

I watched a fella at the handle mill (the fella who was training me) get his two fingers took off and sucked up the big vacuum line that took all the sawdust to the holding area, before being burned in a kiln. He didn't even know it happened til he saw the blood. Took about a dozen men to dig through the 5 ft high and 15 ft wide pile of sawdust to find his digits. By then he was already at the hospital and stitched up. I asked to work in the sanding room after that. Needless to say, I sanded ax handles all day long, every day, and was damn glad of it.

I've been cleaning it up and fine tuning it, it's from the late 1930's in good shape but a lot of it covered in red velvet. Chucked some oil bronze and turned a small bushing, that's about it.
I need to collect some tooling for it like a tool post grinder and milling set up, a full set of collets and all that little stuff.
