In 1915, the US Navy had to rely on their own machinists when equipment broke down. Machinists were responsible for a wide variety of tasks which included machining new parts and components. They used other tools besides lathes, but every shop has a lathe.
If you look carefully there is a creeper lurking in the background on the left, with just enough eye glint to make your blood go cold for a second.
