Another 1928 view of the sub-assembly store room with rows of gearboxes in the foreground

Circa 1918/1929 - lathes being built up in batches of 25. Notice the sparsely placed light fittings

Probably photographed in the late 1930s - "Heavy 10" lathes being assembled

1928 Planer Department - lathe beds were clamped together in groups and several machined at one setting. All the machines in this photograph are driven from overhead line shafting.

1928 - planed beds await the call to assembly
