Hi all i heard a story years ago about a lathe that was from a ww2 german U boat!!
having worked on uk subs from the 1950s i find it hard to believe a large machine tool would be taken to sea.
i always thought it was probably a lathe from a german ship yard that built u boats!? but you never know.
anyone know about this??
thank bedge
