"This was the process from start.
A steel ingot that was about 12 ft long had a nick burnt on the outside circumference.
Then it entered the Scriven Ingot Breaker and was snapped into a small billet to be made into a wheel. (This machine was nicknamed KING KONG) Because of its size and strength
This photo was taken about 1960 when we had a visit by the king of Nepal."
