This is my Kearney & Trecker horizontal milling machine. It was produced throughout Planet War II, and was presumably utilized to create components for the war work.
The "War Finish" mark was placed to indicate to any possible post-war consumers that this is not the usual level of cosmetic finishing that Kearney & Trecker would apply to their machines. The government ordered that no additional time be wasted on producing a machine tool pretty when there had been lives at stake.
This old mill has been sitting in my yard for fairly a couple of years, and is missing some parts, some of which had been sold to bring new life to other old K&T mills.
It will soon be scrapped, unless some intrepid parts scroungers save at least some relics from the aging derelict.
