    It's a trip going into a steel mill. I'll never forget my first sighting of a utility vehicle boogieing between buildings pulling a cart holding a red hot crucible containing tons of molten steel.

    The sound of two 2' diameter graphite melting electrodes contacting a pot of scrap steel can't be described beyond saying it roars like a mini gun and you've never heard anything similar before.

    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    That guy has clearly done this a lot. He makes it almost look easy. I really want to know exactly how one goes about doing that the first time without getting gravely injured of killed...
