“Alright Harry Warden he’s here everybody get the fuck out!”
Hello, is it ok for you, if I use parts of this footage for a non commercial student film? Of course I would credit your channel at the end of my film. Thanks.
I run a coal drill on conventional section in 27 inches fun times
God love each and every one of them. I come from a long line of proud Underground coal miners and even though this is British it warms my heart to see these tough men at work. Jimmy Barnes wrote a song called "Working Class Man" it applies to all underground miners world wide.
Miners. The TOUGH TOUGH GUYS! Respect!
Hard hard graft, and all for a pittance,nae health and safety in the pits.
can feel vibration white finger and deafness coming on
Worked with those holman drills in the 1990s for Ryan mining on the stone rippings.Only difference was we didnt have any water to suppress the dust. Worked in a cloud of white dust,must have been mad.
This is fairly high tech for the 1950's with mechanical devices. 20 years earlier it would have been done by hand.
