Check out this odd wood lathe made from a van. Just when you think you have seen it all, something like this comes out. NOT suggested to try, I will stick with my smaller wood lathes thank you.

Yeah, that looks like something Red Green would do! They took him off our local PBS channel. Haven’t seen one of his shows for a while. It was always good for a laugh and how NOT to do something!!!

Whatever it takes. That guy should have exercised some safety by wearing a face mask. He should have known that duct tape will hold just as well as a weld. Sheeesh!

He is nuts and some of his other stuff is just as bad. You do know that is Red Greens cousin.
Thanks for sharing.
