      Hats off to your Grandmother, because when we did the tour it was made pretty clear to us that although it was good/skilled work it was also hard graft, paid by the item produced and fairly dangerous with hazardous chemicals used in the electo-plating process and pieces of machinery that could give you a serious injury. Plus of course they would be breathing in some nasty substances.
