    I saw a very old seamless tube machine under one of the DaVinci museeums in Milan italy. they just left the machine shop there in the dirt and built over it many stories tall.also a ancient wishing well with many old coins still there..and oh somuch more.wire manufacturing,sizing ,stretching etc,big chevron gears.I loved it.
