Steam Bending... on a huge scale

These guys in Australia have a Defiance bending machine dating back to the 1890s and is capable of bending up to 6 inches thick x 12 inches wide boards of timber - yes that is 24/4 lumber US! A rare machine to see in action, anywhere in the world.

They are Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, Victoria. It makes my Windsor chair steam bending and acoustic guitar sides steam bending look like small beer.
