IN arranging a machine shop for the manufacture of acro‐engines, great care has to be taken in the arrangement to ensure that the layout is open without wasting space, at the same time making the most economical use of the floor space available. Also the lighting should be carefully arranged so that the operators can satisfactorily produce their work to the required degree of accuracy, which is necessary in aero‐engine production.
