    Here is a How it's Made segment on collectible firearms. This one is about H&H.
    Pretty amazing stuff. If you know of any other cool How it's Made segments lets see them!

    Also the place where I work is on How it's Made. The guy in the video is the solderer on the assembly line next to me named Jimmy. I make the same gauges but out of 316 SS and instead of soldering I Tig weld them. Depending on the model I can make 55-80 gauges per hour.

    Great videos, we've got zillions of WIKA gauges around the plant here; most all of them are SS.

    Very interesting and entertaining videos, thanks Tony. I wondered why those H&H were so expensive, I guess I know, now!!

    If they are the 4inch SS gauges those are the ones that I make.

    What do you use them for?
