Watch a Massive Hammer Slam This Giant Piece of Metal Into Shape
This video is just plain satisfying to watch. If you’re in a bad mood, watch these workers hammer these massive chunks of metal into various flanges and rings with a monstrous hammer, forklifts, and fire!
This process is labor intensive and takes a lot of time, but these huge metal creations should incredibly durable and last for years. These workers labor tirelessly wrangle their massive creations, bringing in the forklifts to do the heavy lifting when necessary. At the end of the video, you see the flanges after they’ve been machined on a massive lathe and have a great, finished look. These could be used in any number of applications from aerospace to sewage, and with this kind of work going into each one, they should withstand the rigors of whatever job they’re tasked to perform.
I personally recommend watching this video in 2x speed, not because it’s too long, but because you really get a grasp for how precise this process is, despite the rudimentary methods used to create these massive rings
