Hood stamping press

Postby pfarber » Sat Feb 02, 2013 9:19 am

Conversion. Automobile plant. A thirty-eight-and-a-half-ton Bliss Marquette No. 40 1/2-84 press, removed from a building that is being entirely cleared and converted to other war production, is lowered to a flat car for shipment to its new location. There it will form hood sides for 4 x 4 and 6 x 6 army trucks. The large I-beam spans placed through the die opening save dismantling and permit two cranes to share the weight, thus permitting quicker removal. Chevrolet Motor, Detroit, Michigan
