Heritage Machine Works

Heritage Machine Works

The belts connect the Corliss Valve steam engine to the early 1900’s machine shop equipment. This gives our visitors a look at how many industries in the 19th century and early 20th century ran their machinery using these overhead line shafts. We have a 1888 “Shepard” Lathe, an 1885 Engine Lathe” Lathe, an “Oliver” Die Filer, a “Sibley & Ware” drill press, Band Saw, Grinder, a “Ferracute” Punch Press and a “Boyton & Plummer” Shaper all running from the line shaft.

Thanks to C. W. Marsh Co., Norm and Maureen Campbell, Fred Wilder and Alcoa Howmet for major Contributions to this exhibit.
