    Those look like steam power hammers by the pipes running in at the top. Great Picture of the shop and the faces on the crew all look happy!!

    Thanks Jon, another fabulous vintage find!

    Hey PJ, I remember those days also. The guys were mostly happy to be at work, doing stuff that they enjoyed and being proud at the end of the day for getting it done like it should be. We worked our butts off and earned every penny we got. There were projects that were amazing to see at the end of it all and there were a lot of folks standing there with that smile. They all felt that they were a part of something good. Hard to explain, but that smile says it all.

    RR.

    A Wright Aeronautical XRJ47-W-5 ramjet installed in a test chamber of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics' (NACA) new Propulsion Systems Laboratory at the Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory.

    Fullsize image: https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/h...t_fullsize.jpg




    From NASA.gov:

    Construction of the facility had only recently been completed, and NACA engineers were still testing the various operating systems. The Propulsion Systems Laboratory was the NACA’s most powerful facility for testing full-scale engines in simulated flight altitudes. It contained two 14-foot diameter and 100-foot-long altitude chambers that ran parallel to one another with a control room in between. The engine being tested was installed inside the test section of one of the chambers, seen in this photograph. Extensive instrumentation was fitted onto the engine prior to the test. Once the chamber was sealed, the altitude conditions were introduced, and the engine was ignited. Operators in the control room could run the engine at the various speeds and adjust the altitude conditions to the desired levels. The engine’s exhaust was ejected into the cooling equipment. Two 48-inch diameter XRJ47-W-5 ramjets were used to power the North American Aviation Navaho Missile. The Navaho was a winged missile that was intended to travel up to 3000 miles carrying a nuclear warhead. It was launched using rocket booster engines that were ejected after the missile’s ramjet engines were ignited.
