Abstract

Previous articles in this series were concerned with the lubricant handling consultant's survey (September and November issues) and in this, the last part, the actual figures showing savings to be effected are given. We have taken up with Mr. Hunt the practicability of the suggestions made in this series—workmen spending most of their time humping oil barrels or buckets of oil, hundreds of hours spent in walking between machine and stores. We have received the most reliable evidence that the figures given in this article are the average of a number of real surveys that Mr. Hunt's staff have carried out. And what is more, this state of affairs exists all too often at large companies who should know better and whose production methods are otherwise very efficient.
