    There are so many awesome things about that machine it is difficult to choose where to even begin...

    I wish there was someone standing close to it for some idea of scale.

    I was thinking Coragated Roofing dies as well. I'm not positive though. The size of the dies makes me wonder about something heavier. The next "Lathe" behind shows a new one in begining machining stage. I marvel at the process compared to today's machines.
