Giants Of The Soviet Past, Part 2

We have told you about giant industrial objects of Moscow that were essential for Soviet people’s lives but will cease to exist soon. Today we’ll visit an aviation plant in Moscow that is still functioning but will be shifted to the Moscow region.

  1. “an aviation plant in Moscow that is still functioning”……………..Ahhh………..No.

    I think somebody would like to have those big radial are drill presses.

    • Because present government in Russia is a bunch of bribe takers and thieves who care only about their own wellbeing. They know how to destroy things, but have no idea how to build them.

  2. A worker’s paradise (lost)… Photo 8 in our shop is known as a “Hole Wizard.” And girl pin-ups in a factory are as common as cut fingers.

    • Their drill storage cabinet is better looking than at the shop where I work. Some of my co-workers would be drooling wanting to pillage those drills (due to our cheap capitalist bosses who scrimp on buying drills). Luckily for me grinding requires no drills.

  3. Well,that is a lot of second hand steel for the melting pot,and what honisuka asks/says.

    Is that because if a factory or plant goes down,the looters and young come to demolish it,their own way?

  4. “Today we’ll visit an aviation plant in Moscow that is still functioning but will be shifted to the Moscow region.”

    WTF! 😀

    • Cutting oil attracts grime. And under load it comes off as vapor that condenses on any surface. Unless you’ve got a cleaning crew running a solvent washdown detail… And then factories start getting stale from the apathy and cleanup of all kinds gets ignored. Manufacturing is messy work and cleanup is continuous to maintain that Star Trek sparkle of newer plants.

      • also newer plants use CNC machines which enclose the ‘mess’ and use water based coolants. much cleaner. this plant must be 50+ years old and abandoned for last 20.

  5. Mercal I think you walk around thinking the same thing everyday. You think sad things. Life is for learning how to be happy. Why do you waist your life being deliberately miserable.
