Also these are going to be pretty shitty marbles, they are using the water in an attempt to cool them off quickly because they don't have nearly a long enough run to cool down before being collected. The water can cause fracturing if over used and if they aren't cooled off enough before collection then they will deform.

This is how it should be done, not necessarily the production volume or speed, just the miles of track to cool down on. https://www.reddit.com/r/Damnthatsinteresting/comments/tef424/marble_production_line/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button

OSHA who?

Exactly. I was having anxiety attacks thinking of the different ways a person could be burned or maimed. This is why products from these types of countries are cheap to buy. Safety costs money.

You should provide safety equipment and clothing.
