When this started I said to myself that I am not going to spend over 8 minutes watching this – - but I did. It is hilarious.

Greetings Randy,

That guy was hillarious….the more he went around his shop showing things, the worse he got…....
Did he mention it was hot?? That was one of the sloppest, most disorginazed shops I ever saw.
Did he mention it was hot?? I’m like Rich…..the more I watched I couldn’t quit….I had to see what
he was going to do next….......I wonder if he ever turned on the a.c.?...............Funny….......

You have to give the guy credit, its hot. Also a fine example of what not to do or say in front of the camera. I think he could do with purchasing some shop elves to clean up, and the finest money can buy.LOL

My favorite part of the video was the Festool commercial where he picked up the hose and said “It sucks”.

Loved it. Thanks Randy.
I no longer feel my shop is a mess!
Marvin is great. I’m sure soon, we’ll see him on PBS or DIY network.
