Thanks for the link. I found a lack of safety back then; machines without guards, no safety glasses. I liked the descriptive breakdown of skill levels and reference to apprenticeships and age of workers. “the more skilled workers were usually the older men”. There still seemed to be quite a bit of woodworking done with power tools.

Have your say...
