|Ingenuity overcomes difficult supply problem - Rather than tote water for cleaning solvents by bucket over the boggy tundra, propeller specialists built a "little red wagon" at the right out of a patched up belly tank and junked parts of odd pieces of equipment and in order to further the "bucket and rag" procedure, they connected the tank to a small, portable compressor and bolted it to a nozzle which enables them to direct a high-pressure spray against the precision parts of a "prop" dome under going periodic cleaning. The propellers themselves are hung from the portable hoist under which the men are working in and given the same treatment.|
