Paper Machine

In the finishing end was the paper machine which worked at 17 mph non stop day and night. This is where the pulp was stretched, cut, dried, smoothed out, and wound onto a reel at the end of the machine. The machine itself was 320 feet long and the majority of it was used for drying. Despite its size, it took only three people to operate it.
