View of a worker holding a piece of rubber tubing as it is extruded from the tuber machine in the Naval Air Experimental Station's Rubber Compounding and Processing Laboratory. This tuber, a variable speed H.P. Royle equipped with a side-delivery head, was used to extrude rubber or rubber-like materials in the form of a rod or tubing up to a half-inch in diameter. The machine could also be used to apply insulation to wire. This photograph was included in a 1949 Naval Air Experimental Station report on compounding rubber.
