    Did not look that hard to me.

    The only thing I did not get really was the vacuum machine at the end what that is doing. Where does it create the vacuum and what gets pinched off to hold it in?

    The rest of it was really straightforward and an amazing how to guide.

    No prob - I thought it might be appreciated here. :)

    I received the link from an e-mail list that I'm on, geared toward home-machinist stuff. I love my machine tools, and have built some crazy (and no-so-crazy :) ) stuff, but this guy is just beyond. I hate today's "everything is disposable mindset, and love being able to make "something from nothing," but this guy is at another level entirely. Really, really cool stuff.

    Glad y'all enjoyed it! :BEER

    Yeah that was bad-ass stuff!

    The whole key is, the guy's wife isn't nagging him to take the trash out or come up for supper.:hiP
