National Lead Company of Ohio (Fernald) contracted with LeBlond Machine, Cincinnati, Ohio, for the purchase of a rapid boring machine. In 1961, acceptances tests, using 17 tons of natural uranium, were conducted at LeBlond Machine.  It is not clear on the exact quantity of uranium that was used during the first test; however, there are references to fourteen 7-inch x 21-inch billets being successfully drilled. For the second test, documentation exists to support 60,000 pounds of uranium metal being shipped to the R.W. LeBlond Machine Tool Co. for the test. At the conclusion of each test, there is documentation to support decontamination of equipment, and a return of all metal, machining chips, fines, turnings and decontamination equipment to the FMPC. The cutting oil used in the process was released to LeBlond after analysis showed that the uranium contamination was 2.4 mg/liter.
