In machine shops, workers use machines to shape metal parts with great precision. The parts are then used in other machines.
Workers carefully and skillfully ran machines like those inside this machine shop/ Many of the country's engineers of the later 1800s and early 1900s got their start in machine shops like this one. They often began as helpers and gradually worked their way up to become skilled machinists. Built in 1929 in Greenfield Village. Named after Armington & Sims, a maker of steam engines in Providence, Rhode Island.
