MANY months can be saved in tooling for production a new type aeroplane by use of a master tooling dock invented by Leland A. Bryant, of Beverly Hills, California, whose patents have been acquired by the Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corp. In the foreword to a manual describing the principles, construction and use of the dock, prepared by the inventor for the Corporation, C. W. Perelle, vice‐president of manufacturing, states that Consolidated has been extremely fortunate to be the first manufacturers to utilize fully the principles of this remarkable new positioning device, which has opened up an important field in manufacturing.
