- The American Precision Museum is located in the renovated 1846 Robbins & Lawrence factory in Windsor, Vermont. The building is said to be the first U.S. factory to make precision interchangeable parts and thus that Robbins and Lawrence gave birth to the precision machine tool industry. The museum has the largest U.S. collection of historically significant machine tools.

- American Precision Museum a.k.a. The Robbins and Lawrence Armory and Machine Shop was an armory and machine shop in Windsor, Vermont. Its building, built in 1846, still stands, on Main Street at the corner of Maple Street, and now houses the American Precision Museum. Robbins and Lawrence was an important center of machine tool development in the 19th century. The work done there helped accelerate the industrial revolution by improving the production of interchangeable parts, which would lead to mass production. The firm spawned scores of other historic machine tool firms and manufacturing firms via a social network of New England toolmakers.
