Whatever machinery strikes your fancy, with an emphasis on older stuff.

Corliss steam engine from sometime in the 1800s.
40-foot flywheel diameter at 4-foot wide, it used to drive a leather belt
to power a huge machine-shop manufacturing factory.
Rotational accuracy within a few-thousandths of an inch, it's put into operating motion
every weekend under power of compressed air.

One can feel the air it moves around if you're near it while in motion.
