    Default OT: Entertaining 48 min documentary on building fire trucks.

    Has fabrication, welding, painting. If you don't have 48 minutes then no need to complain about it.

    I'll try to find time to watch it in the morning. It looks pretty good.

    Thanks for posting something non-political. This place is getting a little sickening.

    I have been to the Ferrara Fire factory outside of Baton Rouge several times to sign off on new apparatus for my volunteer department and it is very interesting. Some machining and lots of fabrication. The Pierce video is part self promotion but interesting if you are into trucks.

    I have to limit my data usage so I have to rarely watch videos. What is the name of the company and where is it located? I know one old customer from the limousine building industry started converting showroom models into police cars. I would assume there might be a few making funeral cars, fire trucks and ambulances also. Most I know of withered up and blew away, never to return.
