Women At Work: Drill Press   Leave a comment

Women in industry. Aircraft motor workers. Youthful Paderewskis, take note! Her finger made superbly flexible by years of piano practice, this young employee of a Midwest aircraft motor plant finds her musical training of great assistance in her war job. The operation of this drill press demands constant, rapid hand and wrist movement--and that's where those hours of do-re-mi are paying dividends. She's countersinking six holes in a bolt, an operation requiring great precision, speed and skill. Office of War Information, August 1942.
