What can you start off with that's reliable and accurate, but easy to churn out in very large quantities under even relatively primitive conditions? The rolling block's the best overall in that regard. Later, when a somewhat more advanced industrial plant has been established, a more advanced design would be a better bargain, but to start off with, keep it simple.
