Plate-Bending Rolls, 1913
Hugh Smith & Co, Possil Works, Glasgow
One of the largest machine tools ever used in Chatham Dockyard, this set of 42ft (12.8m) plate-bending rolls weighs 200 tons. It was installed in the yard's No. 5 machine shop in 1913 and was used to bend metal plates up to 1 1/2 inches (37.5mm) thick. The rolls were rescued by Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust in 1986, shortly before the machine shop was demolished. They were re-erected on this site in 2010 as part of the No.1 Smithery project.
