    "...hit the frame with this giant hammer thing..."

    It would be nice if the narrator knew what he is talking about. It is a closed die hot drop forging operation.

    Interesting though.

    Dan, you are right. Still, 99% of the viewers will understand the "big hammer thingy" better than its true name.
