Photo New addition for the wood shop at Coolspring

Just picked this wood working machinery up yesterday. The one machine is a power feed rip saw and the other is a Horizontal Boring machine. The interesting thing about these machines are they both came out of the Spang Foundry where they made the wooden patterns for machinery and engines also made the wooden bull wheel pulley for the standard rigs This information came from the guy that pulled the machinery out of spang in Butler Pa.

Mark, I see the machinery was made by Sinker Davis. That company has a unique engine history in itself.
