Greenfield Tap & Die Co.
Description
<strong>Editor Note</strong>: This [WWI] machine set-up to tap the nose of a "Shrapnel" shell.<br /> Shrapnel shells were anti-personnel artillery munitions which carried a large number of individual <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullet">bullets</a> close to the target and then ejected them to allow them to continue along the shell's trajectory and strike the target individually. They relied almost entirely on the shell's velocity for their lethality. The munition has been obsolete since the end of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I">World War I</a> for anti-personnel use, when it was superseded by <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-explosive_shell">high-explosive shells</a> for that role.
