    I thought it funny how the guy was walking around checking panel fitment. To hear it told today, they just threw these things together and they didn't care how they fit together.

    Very cool. Amazing at the size of some of those presses. The amount of moving parts there is just damn cool.

  13. My Dad went to work in one of those factory and lasted one day, He said he would rather pound nails in the sunshine. What boring work.

    I have gotten to deliver inside some metal stamping places, and they look much the same today as they did back then. One difference between now and then is that robots load and unload the machines instead of men doing it. Another difference is they use coils instead of sheets, the machines feed constantly, and after one machine stamps a part out, it goes to another to make another stamp on it, until the panel is finished instead of doing it in one large stamp.
    Really cool to see those old Mopar's going together. I wish I could find a few fresh off the assembly line like that, instead of with 76 years of rust!:D
     
  19. ...first time I've veiwed it. simply amazing for mid-30's. Looks like it could be a dangerous place to work it you slipped up.

    You know today that plant would be closed by OSHA. I didn't see any safety glasses, hand protection, foot protection, moving machine guards of any kind. So many violations I couldn't keep up. Might also explain why cars where so much cheaper then too. Was the UAW active then?

    The amount of automation for the mid 30's just astonishes me... Honestly, while I was watching just the frame building, had the frame not been identifiable as 30's era construction, I would have thought that this was a compilation of footage from at least 20 years later.
