He sure could have cut his time in half with a cutting torch.

Anything is possible with some quality time with a grinder. I think the big one was a Metabo, so he had a good grinder to work with.

I'd be interested in how much time and how many grinding wheels were used. He did a nice job , but it seems like it would have taken quite a few hours.

Reminds me of how much hand crafted work around the Farm was done with hacksaws, files, fire and hammers.

Amazing just how much stuff has been formed/built out of metals without the use of lathes, mills, electric saws etc etc etc.

The smaller grinder was a Bosch. Seemed to be better quality than the Bosch junk around here. I think this was done in Western Europe? Bosch has a better rep over there than here.

(Help for Cutter) :-)
That isn't a "Track" it's just part of a "rail".
A Track is two rails and the bed under them, along with a few ties. :-)

I watched it all, expecting at anytime an ad for Bosch grinders, or whatever brand of cutting wheels he was using.

It appeared the only tools he has is a couple grinders, chisel, hammer and crappy drill press.
