Barry Bauer’s Photo Project – Jerry Jones

07.jpg

Jerry Jones worked in the Tool Inspection department. Tool Inspection went from being a department that used Jo Blocks, an indicator stand, micrometers, height gauge, and in some cases, a six or twelve inch scale to a department that used a digital coordinate machine, and modern day optical comparators.

Sometimes they had to go to the toolmaker in charge of the project for a deviation from the print or go to the engineer that designed it. Otherwise the piece of tooling in question was either repaired in-house or sent back to the tool & die supplier.
