Those never get old. It is really amazing that they were able to achieve tolerances within 1/1000th of an inch with no computers, no CNC, no nothin', and got there with likewise mechanical testing equipment which appears to have been engineered by Fred Flintstone. What a great era for the American cerebral facility.
