Echoes From The Oil Country Vol 2 by W. Osborne

More wild stories from Osborne, machine shop foreman, back when a machinist was someone who repaired machines.

Stories of repairing governors, hiring good men. fixing pumps and engines, bad Babbitt metal, running an old worn out lathe, and more.

My favourite would have to be sending Charley out to the repair the steam engine at the nitroglycerine factory. Charley was convinced the factory would explode at any instant, he had heard too many stories about accidents at the factory, after all the machinery used at the factory was all very cheap because it never lasted long enough to wear out.
