A dual mono recording of a vintage train-wheel lathe starting up, running and stopping, not actually cutting metal. Recorded in a narrow-gauge railway workshop. Rode NTG-2 > Shure FP 24/SD Mix Pre > Sony PCM M10
I've had occasion to find the sound of "machinery starting up" and all I've ever found have been old-time elevators which are beautiful in their own right. I liked this sound simply for the opening two seconds of startup. I could turn the rest of it into a low-pitch rumble and throw all kinds of stuff on top. With a minute of sound, it's perfect for background and should be easy to loop if I want it longer.
