Here are a few photos from the Istanbul Agop factory in Turkey. I got to see every step of the process except the actual melting and casting of the puck/blank. Apparently no photos are allowed during that part anyway, I couldn't even snap a shot of the foundry itself. By the time I got there the latest batch was cooling and ready for the roller.
