1936 Chev production line video
« on: August 24, 2011, 06:18:52 AM »
A friend sent me this video of a Chevrolet factory in 1936.  I was amazed at the level of automation. Just shows us that we did have robotics long before we had micro chips.

If there is a better way to post the link, Papaw, let me know. Thanks

Fabulous!  Thank you so much for sharing this.  I've seen stills of some of the process, but nothing matches seeing everything in action.

Did anyone else notice how clean their hands were?  Some looked like they had just come from the manicurist.

No sure how old this post was but that is a fantastic video, thanks for posting the link. I would never have had the opportunity to see it otherwise
Always looking for what interests me, anything early Dodge Brothers/Graham Brothers trucks ( pre 1932 or so ) and slant six / Super six parts.

That is a good way to link it. If an option to embed the video, that should work also.

Great video!
