    This is what teamwork looks like. It's amazing really as they all must be DEAF as door posts. It's a bit long but worth watching to the end. :)

    Impressive. Those men have made more than a few of those things. I wonder what the finished product will look like.

    Do you mean the thing the flange will be fitted into?
    The finished flange is shown at the end of the video and is impressive in itself. [​IMG]

    That's just little stuff !
    Sam Salvati posted some film of a British company making huge anchors and chain 100 years ago .Somewhere on this forum. Wrought iron with about 8 men slinging large sledge hammers to make the parts. Choriography at it's best.Makes the Chinese work child's play !!

    I guess I missed the end of the video. Well worth watching again. What do you suppose that hammer weighs. Or the anvil or the piece of steel that they were working for that matter.
