Last week's place: (clue: Stamped out, thank goodness) Stamp-press machine from the 1940s outside Valley Tractor & Equipment, 11478 North Woodside Avenue, Santee. The 40-ton press, which in its day stamped out metal parts (probably for aircraft), was heaved up there by company owner Rick Sather "to get it out of the way." He doesn't feel sentimental about it. "These were dangerous machines. They stamped whether a piece of metal was in there or your hand was in there. They're illegal now." (Last week’s winners: R.J. McCoy, Elmer Powell, Martha Soby, Jefferson Daniels, Esther Hatchee)
