I Forge Iron

Look at the size of these Tongs!

I think this is going on in either India or Pakistan.  I'm impressed at how accurately they were able to forge it down, apparently by eye.  These guys have done this before, at least once or twice :-).  I suspect that watching this video would give an OSHA inspector the colly wobbles.  I was impressed by the coordination of the boss/master smith in the brown garment and the crew.  Everyone knew exactly what to do and what everyone else was doing.

I'm with you on that George. The forging was impressive as all git out but the machining was like a stroll down memory lane. I was never any good n a 4 jaw chuck, took me forever to center the work but Dad, Glenn or most any other machinist in his shop could in less than a minute. Dad's bog machine lathe was about the same age as the one in the video.

All in all a good hour's watching, thanks for the link Arbalist.
