Very cool. I've lived in or near Philadelphia for years now, and Philly was a big ship-building town in the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, so I've watched a fair number of documentaries about the practice. In one of them, they interviewed these riveters, many of them female, and they described one of the things they used to do. Get a load of this:

A young guy or gal would carry a bucket of glowing rivets, fresh from the furnace--and he or she, using metal tongs, would *toss* them to the riveters. The riveters would then catch these glowing-yellow rivets midair with a rivet catcher or, if they were really good, their own tongs and then bang them into place. Sounds almost unbelievable today but I guess if you're putting in hundreds of rivets day after day, you get pretty darned good at it.

Wonder if they have a portable little induction furnace or one big one and someone running them over?
