Smooth Running of Bearings
Teacher, Ian Roberts
NMIT Collection (Melbourne Polytechnic)
This photograph is drawn from an instructional manual produced at the Collingwood Campus, Northern Metropolitan College of TAFE, in 1989.
The image shows teacher, Ian Roberts, using a screwdriver to sound check the smooth running of bearings after re-assembling a pump, at the Collingwood Campus of TAFE. The manual is a fine example of desktop publishing from the time and consists of a plastic ring bound folder with paper pages in plastic sleeves. Each page contains a pasted in photograph and computer printed instructions. This edition was available for student loan and its purpose was to show how to dismantle a pump, manufacture a new shaft to specifications using a small cylindrical grinder, and then re-assemble the spindle and vee belts so that all components operate smoothly. It was decommissioned from the Melbourne Polytechnic library service in 2017.
