Olden days

10AM - The olden days!
Uncle Seymour is the only person left with whom I may talk about the olden days when we were both involved with the metal goods manufacturing business.  We talk about the huge presses we bought.  And about the problems resolved with cracked cranks.  We picture together the jobs that were run thru these large punch presses. This was back in the 1960s and 1970s.

Seymour's  best times were when he took on the production of mop presses for Continental Manufacturing in 1965.  My big achievement was the government contract to produce parts for the 101mm Howizter shells back in 1970.

When guys get on in years, talking about the olden days brings back to mind the esteem of our younger times.
