........a guy cleaning up the shop in high speed, with music…..

........Or a dog (my dog) catching some frisbees and some sticks…....

haha…sorry guys…just testing out my new tripod I built. You can see it here on the projects page.

The first video you are seeing is me sweeping out my neighbors garage. I live in an apartment while going to college, so do not have my own shop. I’ve gotten to know my neighbor pretty well and he lets me use his garage for woodworking whenever I want. Kind of cramped…but its better than no shop at all. He used to have all his woodworking equipment more spread out but as you can see in the video, he has changed hobbies – he is fixing up that old John Deere Tractor on the right. That takes up half of what used to be all woodworking space. Since i’m the only one making sawdust in there anymore, I try to keep it clean for him!

The second video is of my dog catching some frisbees and some sticks – he would do this ALL DAY LONG if he could.

.....there’s really not point to these videos! Just trying out my new Tripod. Both of these Videos are shot with my Iphone4, and using Imovie to edit them! Thanks for watching :)

I’ve plowed a few fields with a old 1935 Model A John Deere like the one in your video. I like the sound of the engine on the old John Deere.
Hey your tripod is getting a work out. thats a really cool dog.

its definitely a cool tractor, AZMac. Hes got it running, but doesnt have it in showroom shape yet. I like how you have to crank that wheel to get it started. He’s also rebuilding a couple Hit-And-Miss engines. They are pretty fun to watch run and hear. Engines definitely dont sound like they used to!

you showed good technique with that broom and the music was very dramatic

but most of all i want a cool old tractor in my shed (have absolutely no idea what id do with one but it would sure look cool

i also managed to find you cool tripod by looking at your home and then all your projects (excellent job)

and the last video with your dog im sure your arm would fall of long before your dog got sick of chasing frisbees and sticks

When I was a kid, we had two model Bs like the one in your video. I spun that flywheel to start those old tractors many a time! Whatch how you grab the flywheel, or you’ll skin your knuckles on the bolts that hold the krankshaft bearing!...I think your tripod is working out just fine!

Yeah, even with the expectation known, the music still cracked me up. Thanks.
