Steampunk Style at Work

One of the wonderful things about working in a 1920's era mill is all of the wonderful old machinery and equipment that has real style.......... steampunk style! I walk past this great stuff every day and thought I'd take a moment and share a few shots with you.......

Paper Machine #1

Pulp Cutter

There are great gears, knobs, wheels, cranks, gauges, etc. that are a great inspiration for steampunk designs.............. Paper Machine #1 dates to 1928 and is run by huge gears and steam. Steampunk style for real!

The shots above are from the back side of Paper Machine #1 and show the huge drive gears that run the drier drums. Everything is built on a HUGE scale here........ It's like you're is a little person in a giant machine!
