    Well that was a steep learning curve.
    1) How to take a video and do a little rendering.
    2) Creating a YouTube account and then
    3) actually loading it onto youtube...All very scary stuff.

    But hopefully it was all worth the effort.

    Ps I did have to rotate the footage through 90 Deg that meant 2 eddits as the software only allowed 45Deg at a time.

    I took out all the horrible sound.. to make the file a small as possible.

    And I added its name

    Noe for some guards, paint and a proper switch

    Showed it to a friend of mine and he immediately commented that it does not have a "work area/table", fortunately he came up with a solution as well. He scrapped a commercial sanding disc machine, but kept the "working area/table" so....will be fitting this.

    So NOT FINISHED.
