This photo really shows how our T's were manufactured. It's a study in the technology of the day.

Can you imagine a modern day OSHA safety inspector in that place? He's explode trying to go in every direction at once!

His jumper/coverall must be some type of oil cloth because he looks a lot cleaner then his clothes. Or he just started his shift!

That machine appears to be drilling or tapping all 15 head bolt holes in one operation.

I believe that is the Ingersoll milling machine, from my birthplace, Rockford, IL.

Swedish machine tools rule!

Tin Lizzie by Stearn mentions a Foote Burt drill drilling 45 holes at once but the machine i think also is a Foote Burt but tapping 24 holes at once from 3 direction's!I have never seen hardly anything Ingersoll except air related? Bud.

Bud has it right.

This is tapping 24 holes at once from 3 directions, operation 28 in Ford Cylinder Machining Operation.

The photo and information appears on page 82 of the Ford Methods and the Ford Shops by Arnold & Faurote (1915).

The picture here is better than the one in my book.

The Canadian block must need less holes, drilling 41 at one time!!

What a great photo, Jay! I buy parts from a small sprocket and gear manufacturer that up until just about 10 years ago or so, still used a line shaft like that to operate certain equipment. Very cool.
