mould; brick

Description
Tungsten steel brick mould or die press.
Used at Manuel Brickworks until its closure in 2002. The bricks were made from dry clay under high pressure (this did away with the need to dry the brick and saved fuel during firing), hence the high tensile material. The engineering department at the works had to keep the dies in shape.
