    This Fageol thing looks more like a road train than a tractor and trailers. I am wondering if it had air brakes. It looks like all of the trucks under the engine as well as the cars were steering.

    Fageol also produced the Cargoliner truck in the 1950s. The front steering was unusual because the whole axle pivoted like a wagon axle would.

    The NASA image is interesting BUT NASA was not formed until 1958.

    AHHH, OK. Took another look. That is from the NACA records. The predecessor to NASA.

    Nitpicky nitpick, NASA wasn't NASA until later in the 50's; in 1945 it was still NACA.

    That's one heckuva dividing head!

    Agreed, thanks. NASA/Glenn Research Center is the name of the image upload account at Archive.org: https://archive.org/details/C-1945-10126

    But I should've caught that anyway! It's also right there at the bottom of the photo.

    A Cincinnati mill, with a Bridgeport high speed spindle [M head] with a shop-made mount. One hydraulic stylus for blade profile, another for blade foil, operating the indexer. It's tied to gear motor by another a shop-made bracket. The "Y" axis, mounts with the now ubiquitous shop-made bracket.
    Unclear if the indexer is manually advanced for each blade, because the dividing plate and sector seem engaged. A tapered [maybe 2 or 3 degree] helical ball-end cutter is milling [or some] contours.
    Wish the labels on the boxes were legible. Quite some time before CNC, hydraulic tracers did accurate work. Achieving precision like turbine vanes, patterns sized 10:1, reduction is mechanical. Part of the trick in reducing step over mark is juggling stylus and endmill tip radius, and pattern surface.

    I've liked many of these B&W photos, I must print this one!

    And best thing of all?
    I bet this is the same tool room pictured a few weeks back, with the Rotary Head Mill in the lower left. Another bet, a guy there built shop-made brackets!
    Sincerely,
