    Bit different to forming alloy sheet with an english wheel, and dolly hammer and bag.Making a tank from scratch tech is quite a challenge. Enjoyed watching that thanks.

        Am i the only one who feels like finish quality may improve drasticaly if only they would stop throwing them on the pavement? ?


        I do wonder how many fingers that floor has caught, and this definitely isn't what i pictured when i think of third world cheap manufacturing.

        I had a job in a "factory" building water heaters.. Not too far off from this. Dude that fills them with air to test for leaks, that was my job but i sprayed with soap (cant submerge a 400lb stone lined water heater that easy) and i'd have to weld the leaks closed if i found one, then add tabs for something to mount to and send it down the line.. Similar job.. I didn't like it but dude seems cool with it. so cool...
        Don't spend money and buy, spend time and learn.

          I thought the chucking the parts on the floor was not the best method too. I've audited suppliers like these and had to pass and not buy from them when that bad.
