SHOP EQUIPMENT
 
     
 
SUMMARY
 
     
          The workshop equipment provided is slightly modified from that on earlier vessels, but consists of the same units.  
          The arc-welding current can be supplied from either main motor instead of the port motor only.  
          Two acetylene flasks are stowed within the Conning Tower fairwater.  Each has a capacity of 20-liters.  
          The drill press is somewhat larger than that on earlier vessels with a 2" greater distance from head of the drill to the bench plate.  
          The lathe is one of two types.  Swinging clearance and bed length is the same in either type, and is substantially the same as the clearance and bed length on the lathe in 9C vessels.  Features are identical.
