Pig Bed.1...Its me !

Sometimes when we tap out first thing in the morning the iron may be bad. We call it pig iron. The metal tester will test the iron on the first pour and either pass it or pig it.

All hands to station we are about to pig the iron, I am not sure if we have anough room in the pig bed so I have jumped on to the second bed to get it ready. My job is Furnace man now but we are short of men and I did cut my teeth on these hot beds when I first started at DEW.
