No audio needed, just watch about 10 seconds

What's the history of these, any is it something uncommon in the
US?
I'd call it a "rotary inertia" or "worm gear inertia" press and
it
is not common in North America from what I've seen.

That's because Andrew has been hoarding them all in Texas:

Seriously though, he would be a good one to call if you want one. He
seems to come across them pretty often...


Looks like a stamping press. In this case, knocking out 'flatware.
Put the blank in it,down comes the die, up goes the die, out comes
the
spoon / fork. FWIW, Krupp Steel started out supplying those dies.

They were wise to be ready for either war or peace.

But when he started, Herr Krupp wasn't the Industrial Powerhouse.
Rather a bit of the opposite. E.G., his first mill used water wheels
to power the drop hammer (SOP at the time). Which he put on a stream
which didn't have enough flow year round.
