War production drive poster: "Let's Kick Hitler Into Hell." This display was particularly effective in a Midwestern plant that is increasing production with a war production drive. As weekly production comes off the line, the foot rises and tumbles Hitler into the bucket when the quota is reached
Halftrac scout cars. Perfectly balanced sets of connecting rods mean better engine performance for the Army's new halftrac scout cars. The man who weighs the rods must adhere to the very close tolerances set up for every operator in the big Midwestern plant in which he works. White Motor Company, Cleveland, Ohio
Fiberglass manufacture, Owens-Corning, Toledo, Ohio. Out from a siding moves a trainload of fiberglass materials headed for many destinations. The glass fabric will be used in a Midwestern bomber plant now under construction and in the laboratories of medical supply houses where miles of fiberglass tape are used to filter blood plasma in field kits
A part of the shop in a Midwestern company which has converted its machines and trained labor forces from the manufacture of motors and fans to the manufacture of twenty-millimeter shell booster parts
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Turning an outside cut on the flange of a cargo winch drum for the Maritime Commission. This machine in the converted plant of a Midwestern farm implement manufacturer was used to turn inside cuts on farm tractor wheels
Because of the time and difficulties which would be encountered in buying a new staking machine, engineers of a Midwestern company converted an old standard arbor press into an air-operated machine, pictured above, which stakes screws in a twenty- millimeter shell booster. The results of the air-powered machine were a definite saving of time and elimination of fatigue which resulted from the operation of manually operated press. The young lady operating the machine was an operator of a machine for making loose-leaf notebook binders before she became employed on war work
A New Britain-Gridley lathe is worked by an experienced operator at a Midwestern company. The machine which formerly made spur gears, worm wheels and commentator rings has been converted to war use by being tooled with an eccentric spindle and thread rolling attachment for the production of twenty-millimeter shell boosters
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Grinding a crankshaft for a farm tractor engine in a large Midwestern implement plant before the machine was converted to the grinding of axles for marine cargo winches
Production. Aircraft engines. A veteran of the assembly bench, twenty-two-year-old Anne Weinmen, employee of a large Midwest aircraft factory, inspects pistons to be used in airplane engines. With several years experience in Midwestern plants behind her, Miss Weinmen has developed the patience and dexterity this work requires. Melrose Park, Buick plant
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Section of one of the bays of a converted Midwestern farm implement plant now producing steam cargo winches for the Maritime Commission
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. A gear shaper in a large Midwestern farm implement plant works on the production of gears for essential farm equipment and for marine cargo winches. Gun slides and other military equipment are also produced in this plant since its conversion from straight farm equipment manufacture
Production. Aircraft engines. She used to be a librarian, now she inspects aircraft parts. Prior to Alma Jean Vincent's employment in a large Midwestern aircraft plant, she managed the junior book section of a suburban library. She had also been an assistant buyer of sportswear, but this lack of industrial experience seems to have been no handicap for her present job of visual gauge operator, inspecting airplane motor parts. With only six months of war work behind her, she's more than meeting plant requirements for speed and precision. Melrose Park, Buick plant
Rather than wait two months for the delivery of a machine which would burr holes on the inside of a shell booster, the engineering department of a Midwestern plant built its own machine in thirty hours. A novel feature of the homemade machine is the use of a dental burr, which in peacetime is used to make dental patients squirm

Conversion. Farm implements to gun parts. A milling operation is performed on a Bofors gun slide in a large Midwestern farm implement plant now converted to war production. The plant also makes marine steam cargo winches for the Maritime Commission
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Hobbing a gear for a cargo winch for the Maritime Commission. This machine in the converted Midwestern plant of a farm implement manufacturer was used to produce gears for tractors and other farm equipment
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Grinding an axle for a marine cargo winch in the converted Midwestern plant of a farm implement manufacturer. This machine was formerly used to grind crankshafts for farm tractors
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Hobbing five bull gears simultaneously for a plow tractor prior to the conversion of a Midwestern farm implement manufacturer. The machine has since been adapted to cutting gears for cargo winches for the Maritime Commission
Conversion. Farm implements to cargo winches. Steam cargo winches for the Maritime Commission roll off the assembly line of a converted Midwestern plant which formerly produced power farming implements
Conversion. Farm implements to gun parts. A grinding operation is performed on a Bofors gun slide in a converted Midwestern farm implement plant which is also making marine steam cargo winches for the Maritime Commission
