In all it's pipe-tossing glory (The first 3:40 is nothing more than views of the countryside out the bus window):

And a similar, but more recent look at the same place. (The major "modernization" seems to be the addition of a couple of fans.):

Oh I'm sure he has... They wouldn't let copyright infringing go on YouTube. That would be wrong.

How odd, our content filtering here at work has glasspipes blocked as a "Drugs and Paraphernalia" website. I can't imagine that anybody so upright as to scrupulously follow copyright laws would engage in such activities

I had a good look before they catch me. The second one is new.
Did you see the glass press. Any idea what kind of glass they were using?

There so many people.

So many just standing around, so little room to move. Makes me claustrophobic just watching it.

Imagine having to squat all day like those people doing the grinding and sorting or to have to be one of those that are shoveling coal all day.

How'd anyone like the idea of dragging a brick on the grinding plate to create a slurry?

Rahman didn't film the original, here it is at the Rakow:

The new one was filmed by G Brian from Corning who posted it himself. You can see Brenna a few times as well.

I took a look at the Chinese factory as well,

Neither country uses safety equipment, but at least the chinese wear shoes...

G Brian wrote: "Great Ben, Glad that you found the video. The glass for the press was the same soda lime that is being used in the rest of the factory. They were gathering from beehive furnaces. Wish I'd gotten better images of that. It was organized choas at it's finest. I didn't feel in danger at all!"
