Remind them that a typical mail shirt involves making enough wire to wrap round a rod, to snip into 20,000-30,000 wire rings, interlacing each one with four others, rivetting the ends of each ring together, and doing it all to a pattern like a shirt. It's a hellish job, boring, repetitious and murder on the fingertips.
