  5. Edge Mcsnob says:

    it's awesome. horizontal leg gusset would have been nice. beautiful work as always

  6. Nature King says:

    well this sure is a very strong long lasting bench,and secured too

  7. tom thompson says:

    cant believe it needed chaining down ,,lol ,,, good is the man who would try and run away with that weight.

  8. Gooding6708 says:

    use flux core its stronger and doesnt require gas and lays flatter so you dont have to grind only thing is has slag so you must drag

  9. At 6:30, why does he do those little welds on top of the tack welds instead of welding the entire bar stock to the square tubing? I'm curious, I've seen these types of mini welds before on some powerlifting equipment…

    i love the shim under the front leg … you couldn't anticipate that tweaked sidewalk !

  12. I guess if someone really wanted that bench they could unscrew those tapcons and take it…

  13. RantZ_IE says:

    I'm confused, his shop is NYC but his home is not? Does he travel into the city to work? Why?

  14. Seb M says:

  16. What kind of blade is that in the saw? And can that blade be used on other saws?
