WW2 USN Shipboard equipment failures
Posted by Craig Bennett on December 5, 2021, 23:46:33
Last night while watching the History channel "
Toys that made America" the Slinky was made by an engineer from coiled springs as answer during WW2 to prevent equipment breakdowns on navy ships. The engineer was trying out springs to asbord shock on equipment. The navy rejected the idea.So what equipment was effected by this?Was this caused
by ship's gunfire for bombardment or sea battles breaking vaccum tubes? How did they solve the problem. Any one hear about this?
