    Turnbuckle truss bridging under the frame would just about double the strength at the juncture between the cab and the body.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Nice one! The workers faces are a bit "Sharpened" but get the drift of their resolve and work status. Surprising how narrow the frames are for firetrucks. That looks to be some sort of shaper/mill at 9 O'Clock?? Can't quite read the name on the upper crossmember but made in USA for sure. He is working on one of the housings on the floor (pump housing?)...surfacing the mating face??

    Thanks Jon! Great long lineage automotive shop!

    PJs, that's a planer, maybe a ten foot table. It does look like he's running those bodies. I can't make out name either, seems to have a lot of "n". Probably 'Cincinnati'.

    First look I thought it was "Baker 91" or Baker 90 or Baker Co but never heard of it. second line ends with"*SA" which i thought was USA. I like the right angle jigs to hold at level or correct angle for surfacing/machining.

    Monumental and costly (thousands lost to cholera and disease) effort for the day, but in the long run a success. That is a Big Dredge for the day, based on the number of people on it and scaling to that.

    Thanks Jon.
