Model T timing gears alongside the world's smallest man!
That was a good one Norm
No, I believe those are pocket watch gears for the world biggest man
Just suppose you went through all the work to get those gears mounted and then realized your timing marks were off by a tooth??!!!??!!!
Maybe a set for a old time thump and bump press? Modern press gears are Herring Bone anymore! Is that Henry? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
I love that big old machinery. Here is a bull gear on the Yankee River Dredge in Idaho. It's 12 feet in diameter. This gear drove the bucket line. PK
Back in the good old day's there was Toledo Press,Bliss press,the more modern Verson Press,and also Danly Press.Life was good,and every town had some sort of Shop or Factory!! Heck,in 1983 i left a Chevy plant on Friday and started with Old's on Monday!On the way home from Emma,Ind there was a honda on it's roof in the fast lane and i hope no one was hurt,but!
Perhaps only the power of suggestion by being on the forum, but does anyone else think the man in Jay's picture looks a little like Henry Ford?
I faintly recall a picture of Henry with a moustache taken with friends who worked at the Detroit utility company.
