Up the stakes and the pole with the tent. And never store the tent in a Damp place. During a windstorm tighten All ropes secure the Walls to the pins and close door flaps. If the tent has a Roll up Wall lace it at the Corners. Emergency repairs can be made with Patching Cement and Small patches. Very Small tears can be temporarily mended with adhesive tape. Permanent repairs can be made later wit a sewing machine that can handle Canvas. In driving tent stakes make them secure but not too deep or too tight. When the stakes Are too firmly imbedded the Canvas May shrink when wet a causing it to tear at the seams or pull out of shape. The stakes should be driven into the ground so that they slope a bit away from the tent. Should you have an old tent which has lost its water resist Ance you can buy and put on a water resistant compound. It can be applied by Brush or Spray. But be sure to follow the instructions about safety because Many of these preparations Are inflammable. Also and this is important do not think that the More compound you put on the better the result will be. When a tent has an extra heavy layer of water resistant compound on it an unhealthy situation has been created. During the night the sleepers breath condenses on the Canvas and then runs Down like rain. Most states can give you All the information you want about camping facilities in your area. And the United states government puts out a map which shows the location of All state and Federal campsites.

Until Early this summer the shop specialized in producing machines and machine parts according to plans submitted by customers who Are for the most part Industrial plants in the Bennington area. With a newly established engineering department in the new front Wing of the building department head Eugene Lauzon Cousin of owner William e. Lauzon offers customers a machine designing service. A Plant for instance might describe to Lauzon a technical problem which Lauzon would design a machine or machine part to solve. A tool and die department has replaced the ornamental wrought Iron department in the original Central Section of the building. Waiter Schneider a tool and die maker who moved Here some Ive years ago from Germany and machine parts parts with dimensions too Fine to make in an Ordinary machine shop.

Perfect for kids Ity of turning out precision tools with the new engineering department in operation Lauzon will be Able to accept More orders from plants that Are too Small to have machine shops of their own or whose machine shops Are already being used to capacity. A Plant manager might Call for instance and request a machine that would make a particular operation More efficient More automatic or less expensive. His ultimate goal of course is to make a Small invention of his own. The machine shop specializes in what is known As production work. It often turns out for instance Cam lifters or bearings in lots of too or More. Parts Are made out of pieces of solid steel which Are bored drilled and ground until they have the desired shape. Tools Are made of tool steel which is hardened by heating it and Cooling it suddenly in Oil. The machine shop might be called upon to make everything from a Lawn Mower part to a Bulldozer part or to replace to part in a machine that is no longer made. Some machines Are made part by part assembled and delivered Complete. Precision work that is work that demands close tolerances is done in the tool and die department. The tool and die maker for instance might be Given an order for a punch and die combination which would be used in a local Plant to punch parts of a particular shape out of a thin strip of Metal. Schneider makes a punch a solid piece of Metal in the desired shape and a die a piece of Metal out of which the same shape has been Cut. When punch and die Are attached to a machine a thin strip of Metal passes Over the die the punch is forced downward into the die cuts through the Metal strip and the part Falls into a bin below. The clearance Between the punch and die can be no greater than one tenth of a thousandth of an Inch or else the edges of the parts punched out Are ragged. Such Small clearances can be measured Only by a comparato a magnifying device that enlarges such Small distances 50 times so that they can be read. The ornamental wrought Iron department specializes in Iron Balcony and Stair railings but will do any other Type of wrought Iron work a customer May request. The shop has 1,600 designs on hand from which a customer May choose but can also copy drawings and photographs. All wrought Iron pieces Are made of 20-foot Long bars and rods which can be twisted and Cut or Bent into scroll shapes and welded together. Work is done Only on special order. Railings for instance Are made Only to fit the front Steps of the Cus Tomer who orders them. The wrought Iron department is often called on to copy hand hammered hinge and latches in colonial style ouch pieces Are never painted because painting ruins their authenticity. The proper color is obtained Lauzon says by boiling the pieces in Crisco. Lauzonis employees usually have sore shoulders after turning out a colonial hand hammered hinge. And reproductions of this sort run his customers into a lot of Money. A lot of Money.
