Did anyone see the feature on Swann Morton, on The One Show yesterday? Scalpel blade manufacturers of Sheffield, producing 1.5 million blades every day. They even produce their own machinery. Always give their factory a nod when I pass by. I used their blades for many years, in my old job, for mould making. ..>

I saw it - really interesting. And so glad that machines can't replace many of the jobs, that lady quality checking the blades was amazing! :D
