Wonderous! I wonder what happened to the other 1138?

Was it a shipboard tool?

I remember hearing that the metal repair maintenance shops on the battleships were equipped with full sized power hammers, so presumably they would have full size lathes and milling machines.

This would be useful on smaller boats...let alone in my forge.

Envious.

Harold was showing off pics of this thing on his phone at Madison like a new Grandpa. Heck, I would too, if I got a deal like that.
