Is he welding, or cutting?
Real life is really just like cartoons!
i was wondering the same thing. it looked to me like he was intentionally taking down a dangerous roof.
NOSHA approved. Cutting torch, not welding. The guy is a pro.
He must have nerves of steel. Bet his wife was worried for his weld being, but i hope he can solder on.
He was cutting the frame, not welding it.
The trick is to never look down after the ground beneath you falls away.
I can’t see the harness, but per OSHA regs he had to have safety harness with shock absorption to work up there in the first place. A fall would have been unpleasant – possibly even some injuries – but not anything like all the way down.
Does it look like he’s working someplace OSHA knows about?
That seems… doubtful… to me.
After taking more time with the video, I totally agree.
I took a wrong tack after another comment.
Neither welding (cutting) nor mishap (planned event)
“whoa, man – are you all right??”
“yeah, but i may have just crapped my pants…”
“He didn’t fall? Inconceivable!”
it seems like frauenfelder’s posts are all shills or inaccurate.
I bet his previous job experience was sawing tree limbs while sitting on the wrong side.
I’m more impressed with this semi-automated solution to replacing railroad sleepers whilst the rails remain in place:
Whether intended or not, I just can’t imagine sitting on that post while things cave in about you! Especially when it kind of vibrates in response to the collapse.
Am I the only one, despite knowing better, who keeps seeing “Wedding mishap?”
That is mesmerizing. Whoever is running that rig is an artist.
