Western Cincinnati Ohio. Schwab Welding Inc. is a rather small appearing operation that has been in the family for (I believe) three generations. The father and son, Dave were busy working the day the Snakedoctor and I visited. Although Dave is very nice and willing to let us photograph, we felt a bit too intrusive that day and so only took a few shots with the hope of returning some other time.
As is true for many small metal fabricating businesses, the shop is pretty crowded with material, projects, tools and machines. Otro_Mun2 tells me that the machine is an "Ironworker" (which is what I thought the plaque on the side says) It is used to sheer and cut holes in steel. Regardless, I love mechanical things and thought the color of this one made it a prime candidate for a shot or two. I thought I should post it while I'm in an industrial mood.
