CO-83-T-3 – View from the production floor of Building 460, looking west. Building 460 housed equipment, systems, and personnel for fabrication, assembly, and testing of stainless steel components such as reservoirs, tubes, and nonfissile trigger components. The lower left corner of the photograph shows a T-based lathe with an optical comparitor for machining stainless steel. The drum in the lower right corner contains stainless steel turnings collected from the lathe. (9/11/85)
