Eskilstuna stadsmuseet

As part of my endless fascination with workshop equipment I dragged everyone along to the Eskilstuna city museum which has one of the best turn of the century workshops I have seen. Of particular interest was the only oval cutting lathe I have seen.  I assume it works like a rose engine but I will need to do more research to confirm.

In addition there was an exhibition of Eskilstuna knife makers with a remarkable variety of examples including folding knives from the 1700"s
