Production. Submarine chasers. Getting out keel timbers for 110-foot subchasers at an Eastern boatyard. The big oak pieces are shaped with a saw and adze, then planed to a beautiful smooth finish. Each keel is a load for fourteen men. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. They'll sight the U-boats from this crow's nest of a subchaser under construction at an Eastern boatyard. The first painting being given the mast and spars will be repeated many times during the vessel's term of service. A sailor never gets very far away from a paint pot. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. An answer to the U-boats: more subchasers. A husky arc welder has just finished a job on one of the chocks of a chaser at an Eastern boatyard. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. The sturdy oak keel of a wooden subchaser is laid at an Eastern boatyard. The stern of the vessel is scarfed to it. The numbers showing along the keel indicate the "stations" or hull sections into which every boat plan is divided. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

This Norton cutter-grinder which had been specially adapted to grind cams on the motor shaft for the electric dry shaver which this New England plant normally produces, has now been converted to grind permanent magnet rotors for machine tool motors. The conversion was accomplished with new jigs and fixtures and slight changes in the head. This is a tricky job well suited to the skill of this plant's workers. The metal is alnico and the octagonal shape consists of surfaces which are arcs drawn from the center of the piece. Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. Out of commission for the duration. A pleasure yacht is laid up at the yard of an Eastern boat builder now making subchasers and other Navy boats exclusively. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. This Norton type C six-inch semi-automatic cylindrical grinder in a New England plant normally turns out these motor shafts for the firm's electric shavers. It has since been converted to the grinding of spring collets that are used in machine tools being produced to aid the war production effort. The conversion was easily accomplished by replacing the one-inch vitrified aluminum oxide wheel shown here with a three-inch wheel and by enlarging the feed of grinding solution. In this operation normal tolerance is desired (see pix #D-2975). Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. Nemesis of the U-boat. A Navy skipper and executive officer stand on the bridge of their new command, a nearly completed 110-foot wooden subchaser that will soon leave an Eastern boatyard. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. Before and after! This New England plant, whose normal product is electric dry shavers, now is converting to the production of machine tool parts to speed war production. At the right the worker is drilling pressure pinholes in the heads of the shavers; at the left the worker drills center holes in the spring collets which will be used to hold the work in turning machines now being made for the war production effort. Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. "Taking off" the lines of a 173-foot steel subchaser at an Eastern boatyard. This accurate scale model of half of the hull will determine the lines of the full-size boat. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. Another harrier of the U-boats nears completion at an Eastern boatyard. Many 173-foot steel subchasers like this are sliding off the ways nowadays. Marine Construction, Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. Normal peacetime work of this New England plant is the production of electric dry shavers. The worker on this Norton type C six-inch semi-automatic cylindrical grinder normally grinds the rotor shaft for the motor of the shaver using this set-up. He has since been shifted to the making of spring collets to be used in machine tools being made to further the war production effort (see pix #D-2973). Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. Pleasure craft give way to Navy construction. Scale model of the last sailboat built at an Eastern yard now making subchasers and other Navy boats is stored away as the company goes all out for war production. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. This New England plant, whose normal product is electric dry shavers, has now converted its facilities to the production of small, machine tool parts. This drill press which formerly made pressure pinholes in the shearing heads of shavers is now drilling center holes in spring collets which will hold the work in turning machines being made to speed the war production effort. Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. This New England plant normally produces electric dry shavers. On this drill press the heads of the shavers are drilled before slotting to form the rack. Drill presses and other productive machines have now been converted to war production. Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. This worker in a New England plant that normally produces electric dry shavers is now busy turning out spring collets for machine tools to be used in war production. On this Norton type C six-inch semi-automatic cylindrical grinder, he used to turn out rotor shafts for the motor of the shaver. To convert his machine to the larger grinding job, it was necessary only to exchange the normal one-inch vitrified aluminum oxide wheel for a three-inch wheel and to increase the feed of the cooling solution. This worker was used to working to a tolerance of .0002 inches on the motor shafts so he finds it simple to attain the comparatively rough tolerance of .002 inches required on this war work. Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. This Norton type C six-inch semi-automatic cylindrical grinder in a New England plant used to grind motor shafts for the firm's normal production of electric dry shavers. It is now grinding spring collets which are used in turning machines to hold the work being turned. Such machines are vitally needed for the war production effort. The conversion of the machine was accomplished by replacing the one-inch vitrified aluminum oxide wheel shown here with a three-inch wheel and by enlarging the feed of the cutting solution. Tolerances on this war work are only .002 inches as compared with the tolerances on the normal production of .0002 inches (see pix #D-2974). Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut

Production. Submarine chasers. Bending pipe fittings for new subchasers. The heating furnaces and bending floor of an Eastern boatyard are kept busy as one Navy boat after another is built and fitted. Marine Construction Company, Stamford, Connecticut

Conversion. Electric shaver plant. This New England whose normal product is electric dry shavers is now turning out parts for machine tools which will find their place in the war production effort. This bank of Norton grinders which formerly ground motor shafts are now grinding small parts for tools. Tolerances on the war work are only .002 inches whereas the former work demanded much closer tolerances up to .0002 inches. The conversion was accomplished by putting on new grinding wheels, by minor changes in the head and by increasing the feed of the cutting solution. Schick Inc., Stamford, Connecticut
