I made a disk sander spin the wrong way ;) imagine when you forget.
Platten sucked (bent) so slack it is.
Someday; I will find a knife sharpener that works.

Should have been my first post, to much detail;
I was paid and turned free with a idea explaining a problem Pacific Power had.
Given a tour with Both companies engineers, and a few extras dressed pretty
I was given a cocktail napkin drawing to work with. Then a few cards when our engineer found another job.
Pacific Power called a few years later,
I declined a multi million dollar deal because the company I worked for was too busy to build
& I didn't want to move :thinking:
Someone else was buying the rest of the parts, equipment, personal, transportation, property & Labor, while I supervised.

No , It does look like one in a Italian machine that kicks out 40,000 capsules per Hour in the Pharmaceutical Industry though, The guys that tune them are a hoot and are pampered like you can't imagine. Some part replacement tuning requires shipping the machine.
I learned a lot about these machines; Their dailey rate was phenomenal, And a klunk in one got you fired :shock:
Ordering parts for these were easy if the part # matched everything / My boss tried to order a part for some place? That only had one, we had 8 I wouldn't.
They Weren't making payments, Wrong # s Got caught :applause: Jackass
We Had Machines the Very large Breweries have and will not touch (Liabilities) only run them; There are few techs, that were Kida a hoot, but very similar story.
Except ordering parts from Germany :roll:

One of my Employes was a R/N & I worked with a DR.
I signed papers and can't say what they feed me. :R

Next guess only for what this is / Does before, I show another picture?

Something that you don't want to get your finger underneath when it's moving?
