cool things with wheels since 2006
After spending 30+ years in a shop ....I smell the cutting oil now !
I love the smell of Tap Magic!
Like Klotz 2 stroke oil and Castrol R aroma !
And Blendzall with oil of merbane . I still get goose bumps from castor . Go right back to Astrodome 1980 Heres another neat machine shop https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BckZ4i1BzF0
Looks exactly like my grandfather's old shop complete with leather belts running across the ceiling and down to the machinery.
that must have been a terrific place!
For me oddly enough, burnt gear oil takes me to a happy place. The days of swapping out diffs and gearboxes on the floor and wearing the smell of that crap all day.....it was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
