How It’s Made – High Voltage Pole Transformers

Happy Tuesday, everybody!

Another light-related How It’s Made video – this time of the process of fabricating high-voltage pole transformers.  You know, the things that go POP when the power goes out?  Yeah.  I’ll never forget the hellacious ice storm from the winter of 2007 in Oklahoma City that killed transformers all over the city – the power went out for days, and in the dark night time sky, you could see the green lightning of these things popping all over the place.

Amazing.

Check out the How It’s Made video on these things – I had no idea!

Also, not to be outdone – videos of transformers EXPLODING!
