During the 1880's the Tredegar Iron Works made many of the specialized machines necessary in iron production. This was especially true for machinery used in the rolling mills. Two major parts of the stand of rolls you see in the display behind you, were made at Tredegar-the rolls which shape the metal, and the large housings that hold the rolls and gears together.

The rolls were turned on the lathe displayed here. The lathe copies the form of an already shaped piece.
