VIDEO: Factory/Industrial Glass Making

I'll take a stab at it.

I'm fascinated with old films of factories, especially glass. I think I missed my calling, and should have been an historian.

Anyway, I like this one of these Brits changing-out a monkey pot.

I think it's good to look back at how these things were done even if there are no longer any practical applications for the techniques. Who knows? You might get some ideas!

Mold blowing and some rather interesting bit work. Even some cold working!

I love the old ones too.

Here's Murano in the thirties:

Glasfabriek Leerdam.

I like the handle touch down at 1:28. Someone taught me a variation of this technique once.

I don't speak Dutch, unfortunately.

This one has a groovy soundtrack. Dig the lab coat at 2:12.

Note the continued presence of tobacco. Wonder if the guy with the pipe might have taught Nick at one point.
