    Incredible video – I want to work in a factory! Actually, I think I'd rather just drive the BMW and let others put it together, but I'm glad someone does this!

    Don't know which is more impressive. The BMW 3 series production line of today, or Ford Motor Company's assembly line of 1936? Actually I think it's the latter. Judge for yourself:

    The internal combustion wasn't invented until the late nineteenth century and the driving force for machinery in factories, mines and on farms was the steam engine. … The traction engines could also drive large circular saws, the power being transferred via a large flat belt from the flywheel on the engine.
