Stumbled on these tonight, some great stuff here. I had thought about posting them all in a more 'current' section so that more might see them but was afraid they might get shot down by some.

Information is solid even today.

Process of Engineering Production


RE: BBC Technical Studies - Video Presentations

I spent a long summer work placement totally mesmerized by a progressive stamping machine, not unlike what's shown here. Sheer magic. Almost made me want to get into manufacturing engineering.

Progressive die stamping


RE: BBC Technical Studies - Video Presentations

What even more impressive is watching wire forming machines. It's kind of intriguing watching the automatic wire bending and forming machines since all the stock that goes in comes out just that it's now some completely different shape, but there is NO scrape whatsoever. And the movement of the parts of the machine are not confine to just one direction, they can move in almost any direction with many different parts moving at once.
