Gentlemen,
These photo's show us how the M1 Garand Stocks were made. These are early photo's later on Ordnance went to machines that could make 4 stocks at a time.
Sorry about these files as I had a hard time getting them off the microfilm. Let me know what you think of these early machines.


Guys drop me an email if you need a better/larger photo of these.

COOL TOOLS!
They are only for one purpose!

Yah giving me "Wood" hahahahaha :eek:

Thanks again Ed as I really get wound up over seeing the machines that made the wood I work on and always wonder. I would be in heaven if I could get ahold of all the U.S. machines to make Garand wood. Rick B

It seems to me that the machine in the first photo is like a kind of copier??
I mean: The machine copies the example set in the upper fastener to the raw wood in the lower.
But... I can be wrong of course
Anyone an idea???

Gentlemen,
On my CD it shows a short movie using that top photo and making the stock.
Remember this is early late 1930's equipment.
Thanks again
Clancy
