  1. Glad to know it works for someone else, I might make it.

  2. Gut vid mein friend, I subbed 🙂

  3. Great video. Clear instructions and good camera work. Question, are you using galvanized steel for your metal foundry? If so, does it ever get hot enough to give off vapors? I understand zinc vapors can make you sick.

  4. Ive seen you around on a lot of the channels I watch. Ive since stopped watching Grant's channel as he has some other guy on there more often then himself, and i don't really like the vids as much with the other guy for some reason. anyway, im going throught your vids after seeing you on ZNA's vid.

  5. Nice man. Thats dope

  6. You know lead melts on a turkey fryer burner…
