Fabulous! Superb!
And the film quality was so good.
I didn't have headphones so watched without sound. But I knew what was happening without narration. A choreography of casting forging, milling, drilling, turning, pipe fitting, flange rolling, heat treating, rivet heading. The cylinder and wheel molding were eye-popping.

I wanted it to last longer, and to see all the machining between every stage shown, but well, whaddya want , egg in yer beer?
I love it when a Plan B comes together!
