The intro and the music might be a little cheesy, but I do love this video, Elements in Action, about the uses of iron, carbon, nickel, and aluminum that was produced by the Metals Service Center Institute, a 100 year-old trade association supporting the North American distributors and producers of steel, aluminum and stainless steel.


A good reminder about all that goes into the manufacture of the objects in our lives. And some cool historical images, too.
