It's been a few years since I've see this video anywhere - think it was posted on DrumTalk or some such. Does anyone have a link? It was a silent, color home movie of someone's tour of the Ludwig factory circa mid-60s.

I was looking for them a few weeks ago and couldn't find them anywhere. I guess they never made it to youtube and whatever site was hosting it has shut down. There were 3 to 5 different home movies showing drilling grommet holes by eye, cutting snare beds on a jointer, welding and polishing tripple flange hoops among other things.

I was also really hoping to see these again. I really wish they would come back.

Those youtube videos of the mid 60's Ludwig plant in operation were supposed to be home movies that Bill Ludwig Jr. took himself. There were several showing different parts of the plant, including the infamous free hand drilling for the air vent scene. I think they pulled these videos down years ago for whatever reason.
