    That is oddly satisfying to watch.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    I never thought about how cookie cutters were made, but now that I know, I'm fascinated.
    I rather be American than a Republican.

    I knew a mechanical engineer who became tired of his work and decided to become a woodworker, a toy maker. So he built a little factory, one that would fit into a small container. All automated wood lathes manufacturing all parts. The input was dry hardwood, the output was perfectly turned and painted toy trains.

    The company was called GeoToys but it's not the GeoToys Google comes up with now.
    The cookie cutter machinery reminded me of the automated machinery he used.

    Probably all in slow motion...
    When they are running those slides are likely moving so fast you can't see them moving.

    I wonder what the annual production of cookie cutters is.

    Once I saw the simplicity of it I started to relax and just enjoy it.

    Thanks, Skip! That was fun.

    I wonder how they remove the finished items and replace them with new rings.
