@RadioGrayBeard: When he wrapped his hand around the iron I cringed.  Thought he was going to grab the wrong end.

LOL -- When he started "tagging" the joints I was thinking "WHAT???" before I realized he was joking with us...

@Alex: ...the video did bring back memories of building a motor as a young boy...

I know what you mean -- it sort of reminded me of some of the things I did as a lad -- but I do get the impression from watching some of Big Clive's other videos that he knows a lot more than he lets on, as it were.

The bright LED intrigued me enough to look them up. The 100W power LEDs are rated for 30-34V and the video looks like he hooked it up directly to 220V main. It is no wonder that it blew up. Also, the specs say that the LED must be mounted on a heat sink since even at the rated voltage they get very hot.

Though the video did bring back memories of building a motor as a young boy and when it didn't work with teh battery I had, I tried connecting it directly to the 120V AC power. The motor burst into flames almost immediately. Very disappointing and very funny at the time.

@Rcurl: I'm still trying to decide if he thinks he is giving out good information or if it's a bad joke.

No -- it's definitely a spoof -- but such a good one that it leaves you wondering

A trace of a Scottish accent, and a posting date of Dec. 31 suggest that the project may have been inspired by an imprudent  degree of refreshment.

His Tig-welding technique may have been learnt at the same institution that taught him the state-of-the-art (circa 1996) Web design skills illustratred at bigclive.com. :-)*

@Duane: ...to connect my muffler belt to my catastrophic converter.

Are you still using the old Mark 4 with the reverberating notchet tattles?

@Max: Rick Curl just caused me to waste a few more minutes of my precious time by pointing me at this video from Big Clive atBigClive.com

Oh-  As if you haven't done the same thing to me on more occasions than I can count 0x21 0x21 :)

That video clip just hurts to look at it.  I'm still trying to decide if he thinks he is giving out good information or if it's a bad joke.
