We had a member from India a few years ago, that used to post what here was doing....Amazing what he was doing with simple tools. Safety regs are really lacking though

A good video, Tech. I am going to move this to the lounge, I believe we get more interested guys in that location. Fascinating old world work, thanks for posting. Dan

hardly anyone under 30 can cut a 2x4 here in the US. so hard to find craftsmen anymore, We struggle to find people with any mechanical aptitude, less that 5% of the people we have out of 500 in a manufacturing facility I work with have any craftsmen skills.

Osha would shut that operation down quick!

I use to love seeing his stuff. It was kinda weird how he didn't seem to be a car guy, I never did figure out who or why he was posting them but DAMN they were interesting!

should check out part 1 of the video I posted. A guy actually uses his toe like a clamp-lol It's amazing what the mind is capable of in certain situations. Those guys are making the most out of what they have. Amazing to see.
