    Default Not horological but ...

    If you always wondered how those weird springs are made, this could be better than watching most TV programs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPGj7cbRA64

    Thanks David. I only posted a link. Had no idea that the link had an expiry date. Your link is basically the same thing but not necessarily exactly the same focal point. Still more fascinating than most television shows available free to air.

    Here's another. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Usfkblbytc4 Aparrently I'm not the only one who finds this better than watching TV shows I've seen hundreds of times before.

    I love seeing all the automated stuff. Making things out of wire is one of the most efficient manufacturing processes. No waste, and if you can bury the ends there are no second operations.

    Neat stuff..
