a big old arn
While visiting this old, nearby town, I went by what used to be a hardwood floor manufacturing factory. I once knew the guy that owned it, a real character. Enneyhow, place is abandoned. His main building still have quite a few tons of bundled wood. Some in finished flooring but much in strips. I saw lotsa oak, some pine and some cherry. In the building is the biggest honkin' forklift I have ever seen and the machine shown below. Not sure what it is but surmise it probably is/was his molding machine for turning wood strips into tongue and groove flooring. It is nearly 12 feet long, about seven feet high. The guy is still alive, I can contact if someone wants this monster. BTW, the brand is Yates-American.
