  • traditional Japanese sheet metal work with hand tools ,

    this is a nice video showing how a Japanese shop would form some panels into a "mail box"

    OK , its probably not a mail box , but its about that size of an old USA country mailbox !

    Nice worn hammers and dollies that have been used for years , and then the pieces are gas welded together ,

    Its in Japanese for Japanese TV , so there was never an English language version.

    I hope its interesting to someone

    Here is another one , 200 years of copperwork in family run shop ,
    note the stump she is sitting on , all the stakes on the wall display , filling the vase up 3/4 with water before annealing the top area , so many little things.....

      I loved the copperwork girl , and thinking of the Zen of hammering that you would have to get into to do that everyday ,

      Youtube has so many hidden treasures .....
