Text Appearing Before Image:

machine is made by the Lucas Machine Tool Company of Cleve-land, and is known as No. 1 Precision boring, drilling and mill-ing machine. They also make a No. 2 machine of the samegeneral design, but larger in size and better adapted to theclass of work it would be required to handle in a railroad shop. We expect to build a shop or shed with two tracks longenough to hold twenty steel cars each. Before they are takenin on track No. 1 we will remove the scale from the insidewith a pneumatic hammer and the paint and rust from theoutside with a sand blast. Then as they are run in we pro-pose to paint them with a movable spraying machine suspendedabove the cars on a track running the length of the shop, usinga double hose, so that both sides of the cars can be painted atthe same time. After giving them two coats we will put themon track No. 2 for drying and stenciling.—B. F. Wynn, MasterCar and Locomotive Painters Association. NliMMllKIt, 1904.
