Here's an old French postcard sent in 1916 of gunmaking at Manufrance. Apparently it is as photogenic as sausage making...

That is an AMAZING picture of a real gun factory, producing guns. That is empirical evidence that MF made their own guns.
It’s too bad none of E.M. Reilly’s hundreds of employees didn’t bother to snap at least one pic of their gun making factory & machines.

I worked as a machinist in Abilene TX. In 1977. They had lathes that ran off of leather belts just like the photo above. Yes, they were VERY noisy. The lathes were large and old. Most of the time they were used for roughing drill subs.

That photo brought back memories and a smile!

Great picture, we used to go to the steam engine festival in Downer, MN(Thresherman Days), I only lived a few miles away. They had some really large running steam engines set up permanently there.

When I had my draft horse I helped a neighbor skid the logs for his cabin out of the woods and then hauled them to an old sawmill, the old guy ran it off a stationary case tractor with a long flat leather belt. We did all work loading and unloading the mill, the guy was a master with the mill cutting 20' oak 8x8's out of the logs.

My grandfather was a woodworker and his shop in the basement ran all his tools off a lineshaft on the ceiling.

When I was in Taiwan the little sewing factories would run all of their sewing machines off overhead line shafts. It gave me the idea to convert a fairly modern commercial sewing machine to treadle when I was living in the tent.

I still use it.
