Default Northfield Machinery Tour

Just watched this video of a Northfield Machinery tour.
Fantastic machines, made the old way and made to last

Thanks, Okami! I was surprised at how cluttered their shop looked - much like my own! They turn out some remarkable machines despite the conditions.

I'd feel at home in that environment
I think it's great to see a real worked in shop like that, with history. We see so many pristine work areas these days, I feel like I'd need to take my shoes off just to enter most of them.

I had the opportunity to visit the place as well and got a tour too- awesome place and great people. I had brought my fence to have the face cleaned up and a micro adjust mechanism installed, I also had end play in my motor, so they fixed that for me as well. The Northfield #4 is a fantastic saw, the sliding table is incredibly usefull. Would love to have one of their jointers.
