In this department sheet steel was cut and shaped to produce many types of agricultural implements and parts, including grain boxes and threshing drums. Some were fashioned by hand with mallets and beaters, while others were made using machinery such as presses and guillotines. Moulds were also used to shape the sheet steel and press designs, like the Sunshine logo, into the metal.
In the early years, machinery throughout the works was driven by belts connected to a steam engine. You can see the belts turning in the film.
