I came across this by chance and enjoyed watching. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eF5LVBW1vl8 I like the machine that patches the knots out.

Not changed that much just less labour.

There used to be one firm in the UK who were quite well known for manufacturing rotary veneer lathes - Pickles of Hebden Bridge. When they ceased trading around 1970 they were the last firm to have offered such machinery - none of the post WWII major manufacturers (e.g. White's of Paisley, Sagar, Robinson, Wadkin, Wilson Brothers, etc) having ever offered such machinery AFAIK. Somewhere or other I still have a Pickles catalogue

But then of course we actually made stuff here.
And the tools and machinery to make it.
The only time I've actually seen any Pickles machinery, was at a closing down sale nearly 30 years ago.
There was a huge 36" Pickles planer there. I quite fancied it, but TBH it looked pretty scary!
