News Flash!

LONE STAR INDUSTRIES has expanded! 

In 2019, the Lone Star Steam Sawmill opened (video below).

https://youtu.be/jd2e1ssdOMg

Today, Lone Star Industries opened its Fabrication Shop and Craft Brewery. Like the Sawmill, both are powered by Steam Plants.

The Fabrication Shop includes:

1. A Lathe manufactured by Marklin in Germany in the early 1900s which has been fully restored to working condition.

Measurements are: 7 1/2” L x 3 1/2” W x 5 1/2” H.

2. A Machine Press manufactured by Pericaud in France.

Measurements are: 3 1/2” L x 2” W x 7” H

3. A High Speed Table Saw manufactured by Demon Industries in Australia.

Measurements are: 4 5/8” L x 4 5/8” W x 3 3/4” H

The Steam Plant is a Jensen 25R manufactured in the USA and the Custom Transmission and Chuff Pot were also manufactured by Demon Industries.

The Brewery is a copy of an Ernst Plank design and was manufactured by Russell Snyder in the USA.

Lots of nice stuff there Charlie, I really like that vertical lineshaft  (might be copying that soon 😉) & the table saw looks robust enough to actually cut wood.

I didn't realize the brewery was as small as it is, makes it all that much more impressive with the detail  8)

Charlie, I like how you laid out those tools on one board.  Nice bit of arranging.  Marklin lathe ist sehr schon.  The transmission is an intricate piece of work on its own.

I love this every time I see it & always spot some little Gem that my eye missed before , this time it was that little "Tekno" switch by the table saw, love that little piece.
