The forging operations that most of us see or use today are relatively small. There are large industrial forge shops that we seldom get to see and we may not realize that they still exist. This group of videos from Youtube demonstrate some of the industrial forge shops around the world. It is interesting to watch these smiths shape iron using forging dies or with no tools other than large hammers and tongs.
