Attended destructive testing today. Testing some lengths of cable. This machine can test up to 300,000lbs of strength. I was told it can do more, but isn’t calibrated for that. Some mining companies or oil/gas companies have machines that can do 2,000,000lbs plus.
The carpet is to keep wire shards out of my eyes and face. Safety!
I took a video, but I don’t want to share, so here’s a similar video.
