    Loved this so much I had to share it,
    It's not the destination but the journey you take to get there that matters.

    Good post; I know this video. After the decline of the Times in recent years, it's relieving to see honest hardworking people behind the scenes.

    Behind the scenes is where its at, all the fun and games are found there

    I have to say I was awed by the shear scale of engineering that must have gone into building such a huge machine, wish they'd shown more of it, I could have watched it all day lol.

    Wow! I was a Contract Millwright for many years and I always wanted a home. A Home to me would have been a job like these men have. I loved my work. My specialty was precission alignments and I miss it every day. Thanks for sharing this! It made me smile!

    Did anyone notice when the guy replaced the ink manifold he used his hands and not those silly surgeons wanabe gloves you see so many automotive so called techs wear? I'd shake that guy's hands any day he is the real deal.
    I've had to crawl into many places that was tight like where the guy was replacing the motor. Never fun when the only way you can find that last bolt hidden way up on top where it is impossible to see and about then is when you secretly wish there was a way to grow an eyeball in the palm of your hand or if you had only been born with two thumbs on both hands in place of your pinky finger. A lot of times when I'm doing something I'll tell my wife if I come back in another life, I'm going to try and remember my past life to see if it might be possible to be born with 4 arms and with hands that will fist in both directions.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
