John Garcia worked in Tumble and Pack. This was a department that was called the Swamp.

My favorite story to come out of the swamp is still that time in the late fifties when they were having trouble getting the burrs off a part. The operator was told to throw two pans of media (stone) in the tumbler along with the parts. The bosses who advised him to do that came back a while later only to heard an awful noise coming from the Swamp.

The operator, misunderstanding their instructions, threw the media in pans and all.
