The woodturning lathe

The woodturning lathe that Jos van Gorkum used, was welded together in the weeks prior to his retirement in 1976 by his colleagues at the Lips Propeller factory. It was assembled from bits of scrap metal, during the friday evening "hobby hours", when employees were allowed to use some of the factory's equipment for their personal projects.
