Two to share:
A Spanish shotgun maker - http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=816_1350236745
Video shows many of the 'handcrafted' steps in making a premium custom shotgun. The tools and machinery remind me of what must have been common in small makers in the US around the turn of the century.

Breda machinegun factory during WWII - http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=2e6_1348153004
Probably from an italian propaganda film, shows some neat footage of rooms...i mean lots & lots! of italian light & heavy machineguns being built and testing. After a multi-clip function test of one the operator plunges it into a water bath, to cool it maybe(?). Odd.

Happy New Year to all....<><><>
