Yes, but fascinating to watch nonetheless. We'll leave it for those who haven't seen it. The title doesn't really give a hint though...

New to me and very cool. As tedious as it looks, it's obvious that he enjoys it and that's all that matters.

The person in the video has a website somewhere. I forget the url. There you will learn that he made all of the accompanying equipment that he uses, including the spot welder, the tempture chamber and that gorgeous reciprocating vacuum pump. A very talented guy!

I saw it a yonk or two ago, but it's still seriously kewl. &nbsp;You should understand that the guy built almost all the induction welders, furnaces, vacuum chambers and pumps, and the rest of the stationary tools himself as well. &nbsp;I immodestly proclaim myself the most broadly skillful person I know, and this dewd absolutely puts me on the trailer. &nbsp;Bad, bad, ba-ad!

The best part, though, is where he cuts the plates out of the sheet with the scissors on his Swiss Army Knife. &nbsp;Earthy.
