    It most certainly was, but I guess I missed your point in this discussion. I was merely reliving a few moments of my childhood, not trying to disparage a group of original "Native Americans".

    I have made a couple of real mistakes with this block making machine. As a youngen I'd help dad mix concrete for the back yard. Each time some mix was left over we would make concrete blocks. 5 decades on i needed a spot to store the machine (big mistake number 1= I stored it in a shed I had converted from a badly leaking concrete water tank that i converted into a shed complete with wooden hinged door, glass side panel for loght to see the jo blakes & an awning over the doorway: the humidity in ten years has almost destroyed it). Mistake number2 = I decided to restore it by chelating (10%molasses & bal water). I didn't have a container big enough so dug a large hole and lined with viscreen (very durable plastic sheet used under concrete slabs etc). I had help to lower the heavy inem into its temperory home. Alas we had a very big wet and suffered a small land slip of shale & clay which almost buried it.

    When I went to dig it out there was a dangerous resident in the black plastic so i left well alone until my son visited and we dug & lifted it out. Rather than land fill I have advertised it for restoration or as a garden ornament that a Pandora or other vine can crawl over.

    If I had the time & space I could make many parts (using rusted ones as templates) from quality hardwood but that isn't the case here. I'm culling and storage is a big issue.

    A nice work crew photo from the Mesta Machine Company. I believe this is one of their smaller forging presses. 1950s.
