The Heavy Metal Tug of War
A titanic struggle between an English Victorian etching press and a Danish World War 2 lathe.
The plucky pipe etching press stripped and oiled, less than half the weight of the Viking giant grey beast!!
Undaunted our roller-bowler top heavy hero, using all the cunning of an empire on which the sun never sets, gets a toe hold under the flooring while the Scandinavian cast iron monster bunches up his cast iron mass and calls to the Norse gods of Great Gravity and Iron Inertia to defy movement!!!!!
The ropes tighten, the chains creak, the tension mounts - stand back!! Something could blow!!
England wins!! Denmark must obey!! A triumph of the underdog over superior forces!!!
