    With the propeller in the workshop, the team quickly got to work measuring the bend

    Hello!

    With the propeller in the workshop, the team quickly got to work measuring the bend damage and preparing the propeller for straightening and re-tipping.

    I think I know the correct interpretation of the sentence, namely, while the propeller was in the workshop, the team quickly started measuring the bend damage and preparing the propeller for straightening and re-tipping.

    Do you confirm?

    I arrived at the following conclusion: to get to work measuring = to start measuring

    Is it also possible and acceptable to say "to get to work on measuring" instead of "to get to work measuring"?

    What is your opinion?
