Scene in the rolling mill of the Chosun Machine Manufacturing Company's plant at Inchon. Much better equipped than the Samwha plant, this factory produces iron bars and replacement rollers for its own rolling mill. Here a worker blasts the sand form off a replacement roller with a compressed-air chisel.
The rolling mill at the Chosun plant, with hot iron bars being fed from one set of rollers to another to reduce their size. Capacity of the mill is three to five tons per eight-hour shift. The mill was made in Japan.
