When I worked for NRAO on the ALMA project one of the people on the project was Australian; from Sydney IIRC and had a very bad experience with a funnel web spider when he was a kid.  The NM local black widows and scorpions didn't phase him a bit!

Hi guys

I found this on youtube and just thought I would share it as I really think this could be quite useful to a number of Blacksmiths, beginners starters experienced or otherwise.

Cool. It has one interesting feature...you can match the tongs to the work by sliding a new rein in. Holding half rounds, for instance,  could be done by using half a flat pair and half a round pair.

Yeah it's good I think and can overtime be refined. It'll be good to see other blacksmiths adding there insight or using them making them ect. For instance if using heavier ranes, will the jaws open as wide or will there become restrictions ect. Anyway. We will see.
