What appears to be cutter heads, the inclined 'toolposts' is a very precise yet easy adjustment in simultaneous centerline and diameter correction for setup, independent of the 'cross slide'.

The name for the tooth pattern sometimes called a double helical but most often called a Herringbone. As I mentioned in another thread about the ability to transmit more torque with a helical than a straight cut gear the Herringbone design takes that to a far new level not only in the ability of handling increased torque the design does 2 more things it virtually eliminates lateral thrust plus can offer near zero backlash.
Here is a small pair of gear I have made out of aluminum
Here are a few examples of larger gear sets even right angle
Due largely to the double angle cut of the gears which in turn alters the stress angle in the body of both gears a higher ratio between pinion and bull can be obtained since there is also more tooth contact and more teeth in contact than a straight cut spur gear

Never try to tell me it can't be done
When I have to paint I use KBS products

When a supervisors office is on casters, likely he's many processes to oversee.
He knows it's a large plant, when that office also has lifting eyes to hoist by bridge crane.
Of so many pics Jon has presented, this is first I recall depicting duckboards.
Have made a couple over the years, best surface for prolonged standing, and minimizing chips underfoot. Lifted occasionally, chips are right there, ready to scoop and dispose.
But end-grain wood bricks still first choice.
...we'll learn more by wandering than searching...
