“V” in Transformer Winder Symbolizes Victory
As though symbolizing the remote but essential part it plays in the Allied Nations’ drive for victory, the letter “V” is formed by a machine winding coils for electric transformers made by a Westinghouse plant. The two slanting arms of the “V” serve to support several spools of copper wire, which can be wound onto as many as nine coils at a time under the guidance of one operator. Transformers in which the coils will go are used to “step up” or “step down” the voltage as required by electric power tools in defense industries.
