Stine’s Gear Shop

A collection of metal gears, in a range of sizes, are photographed resting on a brown table top.

The gears in the photograph are examples of the products produced at Stine Gear and Machine Shop, near Bessemer City and two miles from the proposed east pit mine. Owner Brian Harper is concerned that the proposed mine will disrupt his business by lowering the water table and creating ground vibrations that will cause his precision machinery to malfunction.
