This industrial film footage captures the manufacturing process for the Graham-Hoeme Plow at the company's factory in Amarillo. All stages of production are captured from forging, soldering, and assembly to blueprint sketching and loading on to trucks. The film portrays the technology used to build the plows as well as the workers that ran the machines. It also includes footage of the finished product in use on a farm.
Touted as "The Plow to Save the Plains" the Graham-Hoeme Chisel Plow, named jointly for its inventor Fred Hoeme (of Hooker, OK) and the Amarillo-based corporation that manufactured and distributed it, helped control the effects of wind erosion during the seven-year drought of the 1950s.
