Support the American Precision Museum

The innovation that makes our world possible was developed by you, your families, and the manufacturers who came before us. Help us preserve the knowledge, stories, and manufacturing equipment for future generations to know how new technology enabled precision manufacturing.

The birth of American manufacturing and the machine tool industry is a story that is told at the American Precision Museum (APM) located in the heart of Precision Valley in Windsor, Vermont. A world class collection of machine tools, including the Bridgeport #1 are a part of an exhibit housed in what once was the 1846 Robbins and Lawrence Armory Building that is a National Historic landmark.

To celebrate the 175th anniversary of the armory building where it all began, we are designing new, engaging exhibits available to all ages and accessible in-person and on digital platforms. The story of the inception, evolution, and impact of American manufacturing will come to life in the exhibit: Looking Back to Face Forward. In the coming year this will include a series of interactive displays telling the story of how manufacturing moved from a file to fit approach to using machine tools to create interchangeability.

You can help make this happen. Your generous online donation will enable APM to reach our Phase I goal of $400,000 necessary to preserve this important part of our industry’s history.
