    Kinda like a Piranha but a lot bigger. Apparently it just runs all day and digests whatever they want.

    Way to mush crap from china. And here again, NOTHING to do with homemade tools. Please start another site for this kind of crap. Thanks...

    I like seeing these kinds of clips. Even though they are not homemade, it gives you ideas if you have a problem that needs solving. A lot of these things are low tech and some are even dangerous but the idea is to show what others have done.
    I already knew that cutting a gas filled strut apart was a bad idea. The top video shows exactly why "do not do this at home" is a thing.

    Not for nothing, but you know that these links are completely voluntary, right?

    If the time it takes you to scan the title and determine that you're not interested in it is that precious to you, you may want to recalibrate your ego slightly.

    The odds are good that that machine is a one-off that was fabricated by or for the operator of the scrapyard, which may not make it exactly or strictly home made, but it's still of interest and potential to some of us which would still make it germane.

    And in the time it took you to write out your objection, you could have simply moved on and left it to those of us who actually do want to see weird stuff from China, amongst the photos of Ann Margaret at twenty and the other square peg stuff that's not a perfect fit for the round hole of what you think we ought to be looking at. Hell, I didn't initially mind the time it took to read your whiny complaint, so maybe you can swap time with me. You discipline yourself to not look at things you don't want to look at, and I will refrain from tell you off for being a sniveling twit about it.

    Deal?

    I would think that everything that is posted here is interesting to someone. I skip stuff all the time that doesn't interest me. No big deal.
