Riveting in Glasgow


Recommended Posts

While doing a little historical research on the catch cones that riveters generally used in the USA when rivets were tossed, I ran across this little vid of shipbuilding in Scotland.  In this case they were hand-catching the red-hot rivets and quickly setting them down to be grabbed with tongs for insertion. All I could think of is the 1 in a million that hits your pocket or goes down your overall/cuff of the glove because you fumbled.  Just a little fun hunk o' history to remind you that your job could always be worse :)
