OriginsEdit

David Marshall Williams was a firearms designer who came up with several innovations, including the floating chamber and short-stroke piston, which both relied on pressurized gas to load the breech. He learned his gunsmithing skills while in prison, working in the prison machine shop and fixing the guards guns. After his parole and release, he went on to secure several gun patents.

EffectsEdit

The lathe will pressurize any gas in a closed container when it is put on the lathe. The levels of pressure are high enough to cause the container to explode if it’s suddenly smashed or jolted. Extreme caution and safety goggles are required when using this artifact.

A stash of plastic soda bottles is kept next to the lathe to be turned into improvised grenades in case of malicious unauthorized entry.
