He did have welding goggles on. Now that is a really efficient use of fuel. Good solution for a third world cooking problem.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You certain? Because I just watched the welding parts again, and I couldn't see any sign of goggles. But even if he did have goggles on, they would be for gas welding, and wouldn't be anywhere near adequate for arc welding.

Saw a lot of these in Vietnam and Thailand. They normally used a fan to heat up the fire. Charcoal fueled. Used outside, or under cover, never in the house. A little charcoal goes a long way in one of these.

I do too Gary, It is humorous how he has to put up with foot traffic through his work ares. at least he is wearing shoes. I didn't see him measure any of the curves,and the circles came out perfect. Thanks for posting Theo, very entertaining and educational.

Can you imagine what a guy like that could do with a shop like many of us have?
