    No, there's enough slack in the leather belts that you can restrap the pulleys and stitch the belt while it's running. To engage the machine you kick in the idler wheel to take the slack out and power the machine. One of my duties in the millwork shop I worked in.

    Do you remember the Drive In Theater and Bell and Howell before the Mall

    A friend remembered Skokie mud roads

    Elliots Pine Lodge

    and did you watch Deep Tunnel be made, the Sculpture Garden

    The Movie 'Thief' blew up a house in Lincolnwood, aka Mafia central

    I lived and/or worked in Skokie from 1973

    Before my time. My father was born in Chicago in 1913, but I grew up elsewhere and moved to Chicago in 1976 to work at the Field Museum. Lived in Wrigleyville until 1986, then moved northwest to Bryn Mawr/Kimball area, where I still live. My memories of McCormick Blvd are more U.S. Robotics (modems and Palm Pilot). Itís also too bad the Kline Tools moved away and that factory was torn down.

    and did you watch Deep Tunnel be made, the Sculpture Garden
    Deep Tunnel, yes. The Sculpture Garden is all ripped up now to install new ~2í waste piping to/from the MWRD facility on Howard.

    On nice nights, I would picnic and short nap in the clean grass as break from work at the factory

    Just North is a spot for rowers and small boats to get in the river

    Some would go North and some all the way to the Loop

    I love the cheap Water Taxi downtown, shot this from Water Taxi
