DeKalb Hot Forging Plant


When out doing some obsolete machinery removal in dekalb, I had a great chance to videotape a giant forging operation at a Dekalb hot forging plant. An enormous Chambersburg steam operated hammer was pounding a orange hot, glowing steel billet. The hammers were about 18 to 20 feet tall, with more of them down below in the pits.

I hope that you enjoy this video. WARNING -- IT IS LOUD -- TONE DOWN YOUR SPEAKERS!
