Yes, interesting. But said train wheels use ball bearings. Not so.

That was fascinating, thanks for posting. I recall reading the in WWII Germany, ballbearing plant raids caused some tanks to go out with greased bearings, making them very noisy and vulnerable to premature wear.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Good video Jim. It wasn't what I expected to see. I read an interesting account of how shotgun pellets are made recently in a mag that our version of the NRA puts out. A company in Saskatchewan is making them by dripping molten lead and letting it drop into a pool of water. Apparently the distance it falls is critical as they built a silo that was over 100 feet tall for the job.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I thought that was going to be about rugby...
The upside is now I know how ball bearings are made.
