Schwamb Mill

17 Mill Lane, Arlington MA

13 February 2016

Slide Show HERE

A warm shout out goes to Dick Koolish for sending out notice of this event to NEMES members.  A representative of the mill gave a very interesting talk to our group a while ago and it was neat to be able to see the actual tools and methods of picture frame production.  Norm Abraham of the "This Old House" program hosted a segment one time about the  mill and how oval picture frames are made there.

The museum has a wonderful collection of antique machine tools and very interesting demonstrations of the art of frame making.

If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page.  Please send to   To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up.  Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For  example if the tag came up  DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 974.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
