Back in December, I took a tour of the USS Midway. The USS Midway is an aircraft carrier that was built in 1945, but then decommissioned in the late 1990s, and turned into a museum ship in the 2000’s. Currently, it sits in San Diego, and is well worth the trip.
The machine shop was used for repairing and replacing parts on the ship, as well as for building waste containers. Rather than storing many empty waste barrels on the ship, they instead stored sheet metal, then fabricated the waste containers as needed.
I did not take nearly enough photos of this area. Instead, I have one photo of the lathes:
And one of a display that shows various machine tools. There were several of these, and I only seem to have a photo of one.
I also did not take any photos in the sheet metal room. There were so many neat things to see in this ship, as well as listen to the recordings and keep up with my group, so I missed out on a few photo opportunities.
Thank you for reading my post..
