Think a wedge and steel pin won’t hold an iron tight?

Reminds me of the old Ford Truck commercials where they lift a truck by it’s bed to demonstrate that they use more bolts than the competition, with the tag line “Not that you would… but you could.”

Love it.

Only 2 pull ups? Not that I could do any better. Just had to call him out.

Edit: I get it. Only trying to keep the video short.

If I really wanted to be a show off, I would have done them with one arm.

I would like to add that this was done with an old style plane, before I started flattening the pin on one side. You know, to make it hold the wedge tighter….

Those are some strong screws. Kidding aside nice work not a chance I would do that with my plane.
