    I like the fact that someone worked on this and built this thing, but you have to love the lack of pants while torching and cutting, no safety goggles while grinding. I hoped he used A706 rebar instead of the A615.

    There’s being manly, and there’s being foolhardy. Grinding like that without eye protection is just asking for it. I suppose leg skin isn’t as important as corneal surface integrity.

      I’m sure he was wearing his safety contacts to protect his eyes.
