American Precision Museum

We finished up one of the nights by taking a tour of the American Precision Museum. It was closed for the season, but we were sooo important they let us see ;-) Actually they went out of their way to accommodate us, and it was an impressive collection.

I have no idea what most of these machines are, but I took as many pictures as could anyway. Basically these are some of the first precision machines used... EVER!

This display was a scale, working replica of a machine shop. They even scraped the machine tool ways. Everything works, although it was not running in the off season.
