A Machine that Makes Chain

Tim Hunkin and I recently got a chance to meet David Cole (thanks to Michael Brown) and to see his amazing collection of machinery. Tim shot this video of my favorite machine in David's shop. It's a delightful little machine that makes chain. David's passion for heavy machinery is a joy to witness, I especially like his method of using heavy and sometimes obscure machines to create delicate jewelry.

I'm so obsessed with this particular mechanical wonder that I'm trying to buy one from a guy in Rhode Island. Wish me luck! I think it'll look great in the Learning Studio.
