Lodge & Shipley 106 Year Old Metal Cutting Lathe still under power cutting parts in Birmingham Alabama

Lodge & Shipley Metal Cutting Lathe manufactured in 1912 still under power in Birmingham Alabama at one of our customers  Miller Wire Works.William Lodge arrived in Cincinnati in 1872 from England. He Started in business in 1891 building Lathes in Cincinnati which was the heart of the machine tool building industry. And by the beginning of WWI they became the largest Lathe manufacture in the USA. Their company motto was “Good Lathes Only”. I have to agree with those words. I’ve been around machine tools since 1973 and have never seen a 106 year old machine still in use in a machine shop.
