    Looks like tissue paper. That end of a paper machine is called the winder. I worked for an electrical contractor at a paper mill for 5 years. Thatís exactly what their winders looked like. Not particularly dangerous compared to the rest of the machine. The biggest machine there put out newsprint at a rate of 3100 feet per minute. Thatís more than 30 mph.

    I think one of the characteristics of Chinese industry is to get by with the bare minimum of safety devices to save money and speed production.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    I bet he had that video made so he could show his wife and make her NEVER complain about HER job ever again (unless she works there too!)
