    These old mills are from the machine shop ready to be moved to our new facility. They are just sitting in the warehouse for now so I snapped some shots of some of them. I have no idea what any of them do, they just looked cool. Shot with the NEX 6 w/Vivitar 24mm f2.8.

    This shows the date one of the Millports were built. 1979, 5 years before I was born.

    Great photos!!! Really think the B&W works well for these and I like the little grain seen (high ISO or...?) :thumbup:
    I like them all equal with my least favorites being #2 and #7 :D

    Thanks! These were shot between 1600 and 3200 ISO. A little bit of grain added in post to get that high ISO film feel.

    I used to operate a very similar machine.

    Here's a few I took from back then. I had just gotten my NEX-3, and the original 18-55mm.
