I can't remember the exact quote, but essentially Goering was "most put out" by lots of piano and furniture factories using existing tooling and skills to fabricate curved plywood panels for mosquitos.AndyT":2w9vkg7x said:Fascinating find that - not the sort of thing I have ever seen documented before. Presumably, for the furniture factory, a rifle stock was just a rather complicated table leg, and they were making it with their existing machinery. If that's so, it's interesting to see how many separate little operations are needed, and consequently how specialised some of the machinery seems to be. I could spot Condesteeso's old mortiser, just before the row of Wadkin overhead routers, but many of the machines were much harder to understand.
Thanks for sharing it.
