Hand crafting a tuba

Brass, beaten and molded can be a thing of beauty. Watch as this craftsman puts together a very nice looking tuba. The tools of the trade in this case are somewhat automated, with that mechanical hammer, but it looks like much of this is still done by hand.

    I like the chem trails at the very beginning. The tuba build was cool too.

    Thee always will be those items that will hand crafted. Here there are steps that could be automated to get the job done faster but until there’s a big demand for tubas why bother? While appropriate for the topic the tuba music was a bit annoying Chem trail,LOL

    Beautiful craftsmanship, and I loved the tuba music playing throughout. I never knew they stitched the metal together like that – fascinating!
