Abstract

AT the outset of this description of the production methods employed by the Bristol Company, the writer feels that he should correct what is a somewhat general impression, and one that was, to a certain extent, shared in by himself that the exceptional finish given to every part of the Bristol engine is unnecessary and must add considerably to the production costs. After a close survey of the methods of control and the system of machine operations by which every part is produced, one is at once convinced that the finish is only incidental, and that to make it otherwise would be impossible. If the absence of hand labour is taken into consideration, the impression that it is costly must also be modified.
