Yet the government allowed old "obsolete" machine tool equipment to be
sold and shipped to China. The rational was "old equipment" could not
be used for the precision mill work that is required in order to
fabricate missile components.

Interfaces and techniques
haven't changed much in many, many years. It isn't uncommon
to see references here to lathes, drill presses, etc which were
built in the 40s or 50s, still working fine and doing the same
job a new one would.
Oh well. So much for this morning's pause for reflecting
on things. I'll just continue to watch for opportunities
to buy old tools...
