Machine Shop Work: Operations on the Vertical Drill: No. 2: Countersinking, Counterboring and Spot Facing

About this item

Description As part of the war effort, the U. S. Office of Education released 48 films in 1941 and 1942 to train factory workers and shipbuilders under a project called Victory Training Films. The success of these titles helped convince the federal government and corporations that films could be used to effectively train employees. "The object of this picture is to show the methods and sequences followed when setting up a vertical drill for three different production jobs. The methods followed in mounting the work on the table of the machine and in the setting up the machine so that a number of pieces can be done without changing the set-up are given in detail."
