Wouldn't even get 20 to the gallon out of that. What a monster. And powering what? one wonders.

Good shot of that mad scientist.

Oh yes. I thought it was the Science Museum. Mind you, it's not a patch as interesting as it used to be when it was all mechanical knobs and handles.

We nearly always see machinery like this from ground level, so it's very interesting to see it looking down from your viewpoint here, Bill Wink With all that chugging and pumping, the man in white doesn't seem to have got much out of the end of it! Grin

It's a sprocket makers grommet reamer, or perhaps something else..?
Fine image whatever it is. Nice work.
