    Two workers standing on the platform of a crawler-mounted steam shovel excavator, one of the men is operating the levers. The bucket and dipper (dipper stick) are attached to the boom, which is connected to the rotating platform. In the background are railway lines, a large shed and a train engine pulling carriages inscribed with 'Bolsover'.

    I am pretty sure I ran nearly that same model mill when I was in my apprenticeship 30 years ago. I THINK it was a G&L.

    'Bliss Toledo Toggle Press'

    That's like over 2 million pounds.

    By relative size the prime mover looks like a toy.

    Plus the lubrication system is really neat.

    Here's a short story about the press.
