Here is a neat old machine, this is a “Drum Doctor” for skimming and truing brake drums, as you can see there is a Norton wheel being done, they have to be built before truing the drum surface, otherwise the act of building a wheel can distort the drum.  It works just like a small automatic lathe, the cutting head drives in, and back out automatically.
