Pretty cool.

Mt Grandmother lost half of two fingers to a stamping machine like in the video.

She used to work in a factory that stamped out metal toys.

The DVR is overflowing with so many How It's Made episodes I haven't even watched them all... good stuff. Reminds me of episodes of Mr. Rogers where he'd show the inside of a factory making peanutbutter, crayons or playground balls or whatever.

I always find most fascinating the combination of heat treating and cooling that has been figured out to improve the metal for best strength based on its intended use. It's interesting that even way back before an understanding of materials at an atomic level, metal workers had learned to a degree to do this.

I agree. The wife, however, seems to think i only like it because I'm easily entertained by shiny stuff spinning really fast.
Link Posted: 2/14/2012 5:12:43 PM EDT
I'm surprised there's still that much hands on work required.

If you think that is interesting, you should see Snap-on Tools Company Milwaukee Plant. I used to work for Snap-on at one of their specialty tool plants. The Milwaukee plant has a robotic cell that does pliers start to finish with no human interaction. It was amazing to see.

I saw that a few weeks ago. Couldn't believe they were swaged like that.

I always figured they were forged.

Accurate description of how Snap-on's high volume sockets and extensions are made at their Milwaukee WI plant. The lower volume & bigger tools are made via different processes, as the cold forming machines are slow to changeover, and geared towards high volume runs. I miss working for Snap-on Tools Manufacturing - a good company, great product.

You have to figure there is - or it would be cheaper to make more of it here.

Nope, He was pretty cool though.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Rogers#False_rumors

A false rumor claims that Fred Rogers was once a U.S. Marine sniper in the Vietnam War. The rumor appeared on the Internet in 1994 and re-emerged several times over the next ten years, most notably after his death in 2003. However, Rogers never served in any branch of the military. Beginning in 1963, Rogers developed the Misterogers program for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In 1966, he moved back to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the U.S. where he produced Mister Rogers' Neighborhood through the height of U.S. military involvement in Vietnam. Related claims that Rogers had a number of military tattoos are also entirely false
