It's amazing that machinery wasn't scrapped for the war effort.
Once you steal that column what on earth would you do with it?

It would have to be sliced and each slice polished, I doubt it would be cheaper that using slabs from the quarry in the end. But it seems a shame to cut up a polished cylinder like that, maybe erect it and put a statue of UT on top.

They dropped a CAT through the ice in the Arctic and had to retrieve it. I traced this picture back as far as Reddit but can't find any details.
Seems to me if the ice wouldn't hold the CAT, it wouldn't hold anything lifting it out of the water.
I thought maybe a barge mounted crane but the oil slick seems to be under ice. Damifino.

Griff, your short story was very exciting! When I saw the drive face of the lathe I gasped. I was thinking about turning (already cylindrical) trees (wtf??). But no. Great surprise ending!

Banana, lol.

I also looked for that underwater track-layer photo in vain.
Why did it stop there and not the bottom?
More curious is that I can't find that track pattern anywhere either.

Good find.
Guess I have never seen a 65C.
They small as Cats go and seem to have different configurations.
A year on the bottom.

Is this a test?

Find the difference: one vs. two-piece crank.

This was the next step. A lot of work, a lot of money, they only built one. Crazy difficult to end up with a unit stiff enough to not flex or vibrate, hard enough to stand up to the roller bearings but soft enough to not crack, and perfectly balanced for high RPM.

I laugh every time I see those rollers looking like the old mechanical chattering false teeth.

Now that's the very first motorhome and brilliant concept back in that day.
