I do like the zero clearance insert (I mean table…)! I wish I could work that fast but overall this was pretty scary.

I believe this is the same door being installed.
They hammer the screws in the hinges.

With a small hammer and no apparent pilot holes… The real question is why you would make doors out of a wood that’s soft enough to do that to.

No shoes at all so and no use of push sticks; I am surprised he’s wearing a dust mask and safety glasses.

The second video is hilarious! I lived in Asia for 8 years and saw this sort of thing all the time. Not a lot of OSHA regulations.

On a side note, I remember my dad hammering in screws all the time. He said the threads were there to remove the screws.

It is not gas mask. It is a bandanna to protect the identity of the worker from past and future customers.

It could be that those not so smart workers are actually smarter than us here. These could be hammer drive screws available in China:

That was legislated away a while ago, sometime between the Boston tea party and now.
