Dwight “Rocky” Craig worked on the jumbo slitter in the West end of the plant. Federal-Mogul ordered generic rolls of steel (few sizes) and then processed it in-house. The jumbo coils could be slit to almost any width. The operators would set the slitter up using different sizes of spacers with the slitter blades in between. The jumbo coil could start out at the beginning of the operation as one coil and come out the other end as six narrower coils.

Dwight left Federal-Mogul on April 25, 2002.
