Nucor Steel - Seattle Plant - Craneman

Smile… you’re on candid camera! Early this morning at Nucor Steel Mill in West Seattle, this craneman obviously realized he was being photographed as he was going about his job transferring thirty foot long steel billets from the drag over to the yard. The billets are red hot coming off the mill where they are formed from the continuous caster and sawed into thirty foot lengths each weighing about two tons. The magnet (attached to the crane this man is operating) which picks up these billets cannot ‘lock on’ to them until they have cooled some, if they are too hot sometimes they drop off the ‘pick’ while being moved.

My husband, now retired, worked at this mill for 41 years. Starting in 1968 as a crane follower, he retired as a foreman in the shipping department. He knows the craneman I’ve caught in this shot… but we’ll let him remain anonymous.
