I took a course in Blacksmithing at the local community college.  It was a lot of fun, but seemed like the furthest thing from CNC and automated manufacturing.  Seems that where there is a will, there is a way.  I give you the Hebo automated blacksmithing machine:

No need to worry about it replacing the artistry of blacksmithing, but it’s still a neat machine to watch in action.  There’s some interesting mechanisms at work here.

Love the old, “Money, money, money” soundtrack too!
