    Interesting. Never realized how labour intensive they are.
    I noted they had minimal safety gear.

    Wheelie nice production line. Imagine the labour involved if they didn't have all the power/air tools and jigs.
    The duel nailguns shooting out their tune reminded me of Burt Reynolds in deliverance.

    Me too. but the chips were too large to inhale & the cyclone seemed to remove all fine dust but it was the eyes I which gave me concerned (they may have had ear plugs as machinery seemed above 75 Db). Maybe their guns dont fire the odd wrong angled nail usually due to change of grain direction or knots.
