Anerican Tool Works lathe, 1921




 Not your average home shop tool, from the Vintage Machinery site  comes this info about the company.
 American Tool Works Co. was formed in 1898 as a reorganization of Davis & Egan. Owned by the Schott family of Cincinnati, the firm manufactured engine lathes (including the well known American Pacemaker), shapers, planers, radial drills, tracer lathes, and other machine tools. In 1969 it was absorbed by another company.
The remnants of this company is now owned by Bourn & Koch; that firm is still able to provide information on most of the old American Tool Works machines.
