Amazing what can be accomplished! I was a little worried when he used the angle grinder.

Remind me not to complain anymore…about anything.

This is incredible. It scared the hell out of me when he picked up that grinder,...and then the lathe. WOW!!!!

A guy in a Moroccan market (“medina”) turned a key fob for me, via lathe, using just his feet and toes. He had no arms.

So amazing … what you CAN do, when you try hard not to focus on what you cannot do
