Comments are funny. Most call it plane nuts, but some go along the lines “if you know your tool and its limitations… blah, blah, blah”. Reminds you of anything?

Yeah, and when I lived in Shanghai, the breakdown lane on the interstates was just another lane for traffic. Used to run my company Buick 8” off the guardrail at about 140KPH.

Then you see where someone actually ran up on someone broken down…

Looks like he forgot to put the riving knife and guards back into place before firing up the ol’ tractor. ;-) Silly Russians.

Imagine the torque on that baby! I was about to purchase the plans, but was put down by the utter lack of dust control. You don’t want all those chips in your open wounds!
