Manufacterer of Century Lathes
A lot of memories from there. I worked there over 49 years retiring in 2001. Good times.
Sad to see it shut down but at least it isnt tore down
Wonderful photos. I just picked up an antique Century 16 bandsaw. Nice to see the birthplace.
These are beautiful pictures of manufacturing past. I'm saddened that McIlvanie Machine Works is no longer, but glad that you could record it. I own a Century B nearly identical to the one shown in plate 39. It's a wonderful old machine that brings joy whenever I use it.
I enjoyed your wonderful pictures of the McIlvanie Machine works very much. During the time I worked at Hewlett-Packard in Boise Bill McIlvanie was one of my friends and he told me about the Machine works. I have wanted to visit it for a long time, but your gallery is as good as a real visit! Thanks, Paul
