    A long time ago in a woodworking class I saw a short documentary called "Cooperage" directed by Canadian filmmaker Phillip Borsos. It was brilliant - all the way from trees being cut down to finished barrels rolling out the cooperage in 17 minutes. Shot at the Sweeney Cooperage in Vancouver, an old family-owned company with overhead shaft-driven machines, etc., the only wooden-barrel making company in Canada. I have searched high and low trying to find a copy of it. I'd love to see it again!

    It was Borsos' first film. He did two more short documentaries - "Spartree" and "Nails" (which was nominated for an Academy Award) - and then went on to features, include "The Grey Fox" starring Richard Farnsworth.

    I watched that video a half dozen times and, for the life of me, I still cannot figure out what causes that third barrel stay to "bounce" up from the clamp on the bottom??
    It almost seems like there is a sharp blast of air that "launches" it upwards but that is more a fantastic guess than a rational reason .....

    The stay next to the barrel as it's being formed is an adjustable stay, they drop it over the widest part of the barrel and and then adjust it in place where you see it on the video. Then then they flip the barrel over insert the topmost stay, remove the adjustable one and replace it with a permanent one.

    If you look closely. you'll notice a an adjustment screw on the stays standing next to the barrels.

    I don't think it's so much bouncing as being adjusted by hand - but in time lapse, though we see the worker zipping around we don't see all the movements as they happen.
