I,too, think that is fabulous. I hope that they can continue unhindered by government for another century,

I have to wonder though, why OSHA and the EPA aren't all over them. I didn't see one safety shield anywhere. The guys operating the presses don't have any safety restraints to insure that their hands are out of the way when they operate the press. I especially liked the guy who was lubricating one machine while it was running. At least two of the guys had long, flowing hair and they were standing near operating machinery. The black smoke out of the burner has to be an EPA nightmare.

Like I said, I love what they are doing and hope that can continue to do so, but I'm really surprised that the government isn't all over them.

I think the reason they have evaded OSHA, is because they are family and there are no payrole checks dispursed, just shared income.
I learned that the hard way with OSHA. Myself and my cousin were a two man construction company, but I wrote him a check every two weeks and took out SS, WC, and UI, thus we were under their jurisdiction and got fined, for violations on a job we were doing. If I just gave him a check without taking the withholdings out, they couldn't touch us. A costly lesson.

Speaking of boilers and OSHA, I see you are from Tennessee - have you ever seen the OSHA video clip on the DANA plant (Paris?) boiler explosion a few years ago? Apparently by-passed the low-water cutoff switch. :-(

Prawn Farmer,

I'm not familiar with the explosion or the video, but I'm going to look into it. Thanks for the information.
