Polishing Machine, Stott Park Bobbin Mill

English Heritage

A line shaft polishing machine. This machine, and others in the factory, needed constant maintenance. Bearings needed greasing and the leather belts needed regular replacement. If these machines broke all production in the mill would cease if the shaft stopped turning, so some tasks, such as repositioning a slipped belt, were carried out as it was still revolving.
