After three sessions of restoration work (so far), the Niles Tool Works slip roll in the East Broad Top Boiler Shop was given a test run during the FEBT March restoration session. I have posted video on YouTube of the FEBT Restoration volunteers operating the roll for its first run:

Hope you will take a look. The Slip Roll is the machine on the right in the HABS/HAER Photo
 

 
In the coming session we will be working to make the roll fully operational and plan to bend steel for demonstrations of the machine. It is the fourth piece of equipment in the shops to be reactivated. Two lathes in the Machine Shop also received finishing touches and will be reactivated in May when the three phase power is back on (That will make six machines!)
 
Thanks to the FEBT volunteers and everyone who has supported our efforts and we hope you will continue to do so.
