Cincinnati Machine Tools

Good morning,

This machine is a working part of the display at the Cincinnati History Museum.  Demonstrations are given explaining the tools that helped to manufacture the things built America. 
The tools were shipped all over the world.  It is interesting to us, as we travel to different parts of the world, to see "Cincinnati Machine Tool Company" on equipment. 
The machine tools were used to manufacture the first items that make our lives so comfortable today.

This is so much fun taking a step back in history.

Enjoy,
Lois

I love looking at old machine tools. The good ole USA still makes some of the best machine tools in the world.
