And all this time I thought the Foxconn workers were Chinese...

I think the worst part would be the acoustics, really. At least fabric walls dampen noise somewhat, but these looks like they would reverberate.
Otherwise, at least it's not an open plan, right?

These ~3/8" diameter drills are referred to as "small diameter twist drills" in the caption. Rather large by my standards, but I consider a 6-32 screw to be medium sized.

I was thinking Ministry of Truth -- I figured that it was a photo of some NSA adjunct facility for removing unpersons from historical documents.

Not to nitpick, but I do believe that those lessons are being delivered here.

That would perhaps explain those eldritch stains on the cubicles, to horrible to contemplate!

My wife is getting sucked into the regulatory bureaucracy of Brasil -- she has never seen the movie...

I'm doing some engineering work on a steel erection project for a big solar array right now, and I think the smallest hole in the entire thing is 3/8" diameter. Just had to order a pile of 60" long, 1-1/4" steel bolts for concrete anchoring. So yeah, 3/8" is a tiny twist drill by my standards.
To keep this BB relevant, here are some cool videos of giant bolts getting made (no affiliation with the company): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DAOg4_FwOCg

You heard me right. When doing huge steel erection the girth of your rods is very important for the satisfaction of the customer. It takes more work to push them into place, but if you use a precision driver then I know you'll make it to completion.
