We kept about half of our old machines ( when leaving the old production mill in Herning ) - and we have a yet to be disclosed plan with them ...
To us, they represent an important step in the industrial revolution.
They are old, yes - but being mechanical of nature they also provided easier insights into the world of logics & programming.
You can learn from any THING - but if it is also mechanical, you can in particular learn about the meeting of mind & world.
Also, they are incidentally beautiful - at least to us.
We love our old Stoll(s).
Some of them had to die, for the idea to live.
