A large bucket full of molten material is poured into a large container, possibly a mold, by a group of men using machinery. Some other men stoke the fire under the container. When finished pouring, the men lift the bucket up from the container and take it away on a crane. Two men put prods down repeatedly into the container, while others lay covers on top of it.

During the early 1900's Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Company made a number of industrial films that allowed the public to see what went on inside their buildings. Needless to say, these films didn't contain any sort of plot but some might find them interesting.
In this film we see a large container that has various items being poured into it. On top of the container are some men who appear to be mixing everything. These Westinghouse shorts really aren't all that entertaining and especially when you consider their length. This one here clocks in at just around six minutes and its honestly pretty boring to watch, although it remains slightly entertaining because it at least gives you a chance to see what was going on inside the factory. Obviously safety standards were pretty bad back in the day and its easy to see how accidents could happen.
