We've all seen marbles, many of us have had them as a child and some of us older types have lost our marbles, but have you ever wondered how they're made? Here's two videos showing very different ways of making them.

The volume production method. Note how shonky the furnace looks in this family run business with questionable safety practices. The audio is pretty poor at first, but improves later on.

Two totally different techniques on making marbles? I wish it was that easy to put some lost marbles back in my brain 😀

I enjoy seeing how things are made. Thank you!
