While on assignment shooting footage and stills at the Historic Red Mill in Clinton, NJ, I couldn’t help but marvel at the quality of craftsmanship and durability of the old iron gears. They operated for decades, endlessly turning in sync and enduring year after year. They was made right good!
It got me thinking about the word “gear” and how it can have such a positive connotation. There is nothing like having good gear, gearing up, getting into gear and getting in sync. I guess the key is to not grind ’em.
