If you know what you want to manufacture post war getting general machines before the war and storing them would be best. Unless you have no idea what you want to make in which case a container ship full of general lathes, mills etc. would still be cheaper and more effective.

As always my real issue is raw materials after the war. You can make a lot with basic steels but all the specialty metals need rare or hard to get elements. You would have to stockpile massive quantities of odd materials to make anything more advance than WWII jeeps and low grade armour for Shermans armed with plain AP and HE rounds. Getting mass quantities of steels from all the materials supply depots around the countries means going into bogeyman territory and anyone who has played the game for a few years knows how few return from those runs.
