Yarloop Steam Workshops

One of the joys of Australia is the many localmuseums that contain machinery manufactured in the UK. Yarloop Workshops maintained steam locos and other machinery for the logging industry until 1978. It was then left to gather dust for several years and is now a static museum except that some machinery is steamed once a month.
A gigantic wheel lathe and then the name 'Tangyes' reminded me of the TMS's wheel lathe. Is is still stored at Clay Cross I wonder?

I wonder what the risk assessment would be for this unguarded portable circular saw. However its operator lived to be 77 so it can't have been as leathal as it looks.
