In the 1920s Auto Mechanical Products Co. of Chicago was making and selling items related to servicing automotive electrical systems. Such a specialty is not of interest to this Vintage Machinery website, which focuses on woodworking and metalworking machinery plus the engines and motors that power them. But Auto Mechanical Products Co. also made a metal lathe, which is why they are listed here.
