    Steel mill cobble GIF

    A cobble happens when steel bar is being hot rolled, and the bar jams in the mill. The steel gets tangled, and pressure builds up until the molten steel bar is shot out into the air.

    A very dangerous situation and nothing can be done until the mill stops
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    When that mess cools you hacksaw it free and take it to the nearest modern art museum. Don't laugh, I've seen weirder stuff than that at the LA art museum.

    Agreed 100%. Check out this found-somewhere-on-the-internet double-headed hammer joke:



    Now look at this "contemporary sculpture", by artist Jesse Reed, from the website of Anonymous Works, based in, you guessed it: Los Angeles.

    That first one was scary watching the plonker with the clipboard clearly ignoring the warnings from the guy in the hardhat.

    Once while visiting a wire rope manufacturing company in Germany the Chief engineer was showing me their new elevator rope winding line when we heard a series of loud noises that sounded like the sonic cracks of a thousand bullwhips then sirens and men and women screaming.
    It turned out that in the tension testing lab some how a safety cover had failed when a 100 meter section of 80 mm diameter rope being tested grenaded sending parts of the testing machine and shrapnel from the rope through walls and the long glass viewing window, there were no fatalities but a dozen or more people had some very serious injuries Fortunately the operator was protected in the control booth

    Yes, really impressive, I guess there must be noise like in hell in these plants, maybe that's why the second guy didn't realize what was happening...
    He could have been cut in two pieces ...
    Cheers !

    I like how the 1 guy stays well outside of the fiery loop while the taller guy just calmly steps over it

    I don't miss the cross country mills. The last one I saw here was sometimes in the '70s. Now they run light bar in a continuous line and the speeds are phenomenal (around 120 m/sec is common for rebar)
