  1. Yes, very cool. They weren’t dummies back in the day. Jay Leno’s 1920’s Bentley has hemi combustion chambers, 4 valves per cylinder, and no detachable head. Everything serviced from below the crank. Like going through the butthole to do dentistry,

    265 horse which was ridiculous for the period.

  2. I. WANT. ONE.

    That has to be the most incredible vise I’ve EVER seen, and I’ve seen a few. Why did they quit making them??

      • It’s for all us space nerds. See the video by Scott Manley – it’s (kinda) technical but worth the watch:

        It saved the Apollo 12 mission during liftoff to orbit.

        • I’m calling bullshit on that video. Sorry, but it’s obviously totally made up because there’s not a single sassy Black woman math genius in it. Eny fool know that without sassy Black women there would never have been a space program.

          Back on topic, someone in Nebraska apparently claims to be making updated fractal vises for engraving, and is taking cash deposits on 8-jaw and 16-jaw versions. Photos look nice enough but I have no idea if it’s legit.

  3. I wonder what it was called back then. The word “fractal” didn’t exist then (it was first coined by Mandelbrot in 1975), If you knew what it was really called, you might find one…
