    It was a bit of a jest, I'm glad(ish) you picked up. Asbestos (IIRC) was mostly used at this point, metal would expand when used to contain steam and therefore was undesirable as gasket material in military grade engines.

    Rubber was mainly used in tyre production, and not a necessary industrial product at the time, from a purely military perspective. However, with a nation literally rolling on rubber tyres* and no synthetic sources to speak of ....

    Most horse carriages (if not all) had Rubber tyres at this point IIRC.

      Its 1903 America as is ? OK in 1903 America some of the people moved back in time will be Migrants from Europe. Some of them may want to return to the mother country to flog their knowledge to the highest bidder?
