    But WTH is this? Bullet-proof chamber pot? R&D 'Fat Man' prototype? An early Reuben Garrett Lucius Goldberg [#1] device with contributing designers? No, wait he'd only be 2 years old by then...

    R2D2's great-great-great grandfather? Notice casters hadn't been invented [or available] yet.
    Looks like a pot belly stove to me. What he’s doing with it is another thing.

    Looks like a small potbelly wood stove with a cast iron Dutch oven sitting on top.

    #1 is demonstrating/explaining something to hat modeling audience. Right hand holds shaft of axe-grindstone/belt pulley assembly. Far end of shaft sits on block for height adjustment, pot belly stove doing temp duty as sawhorse. Canīt discern what his left hand is holding.

    You are referring to post #6 near the start of this thread, and no I was not in a habit of using 35 mm film to take pictures of young women back then. Over the years interviewed a lot of potential employees but I must say that young Susan to this day is probably the one the wife and I remember the most W had many people show up looking for a job fully geared up in all of the PPE you could imagine who could barely even strike an arc and forget handing them a torch or plasma to cut their own coupons they would were out a weeks supply of grinding disks to clean them up enough to fit together.
    My welding tests were pretty much standard straight out of the book but for the fabricator/ fitter tests mine were a little intense so much so that it could take half a day of more to complete them. But I let them know up front the quality of work we required and that we paid accordingly usually a higher starting wage than many shops paid their seasoned employees Like the line Powers Booth as lt Razack in Star-ship troupers said "I expect the best and I give the best" was my philosophy
