Lightening things up after the previous post, we bring you this nifty short video of Ukranian blacksmiths forging tools with a 250 year-old water driven hammer. While not as massive or old as Halfa Forge in Sweden, it is still awesome to see the ingenuity and raw power present in these historic machines.

The bouncy music should help brighten your mood, and the video contains factoids about the mill and its history. Enjoy.

    a good tool is still a good tool even if its not new. Looks like it works just fine too.

  2. Hmm. It is an embed from a Facebook page. I will add a manual link in a few minutes. It doesn’t show up on my phone. It worked fine on my of earlier.
