Hello guys,
Anyone into vintage machine tools here? I've got a few older stamping presses, lathes, drill presses, and milling machines in my shop.

I like to keep the older machine tools running versus replacing them with imported machines of today. Anyone here share my passion for vintage machine shop equipment? I'd like to see some pics if you've got classic machines that still run.

Some of the old stuff is awesome and some of it is just plain obsolete. As technology spirals towards the sky, the newer machines are just plain amazing. You have to wonder though if all this technology applied to a cheaply made chassis will actually hold up for decades like the older machines did.

They are deliberately making machines that expire after a few years so they can sell you another one.
