    I want to see the water test with no shoes on. What's amazing, all wires are green, love to see that manual. No eye protection. Climbs a aluminum later to hook it in. Nothing right in this video. I hear the unit only works in third world countries.

    OK, what is dinkydow?

    I had to look it up (Urban dictionary):
    American "grunt" corruption of Vietnamese "dien cai dau", Meaning batty, Squirrel bait, Whacko, Goofy, Etc.

    ...although I was getting more "Philippines" than Viet Nam when I saw the video. I got the feeling that dropping it in his pocket and water dunk were safety demonstrations.

    Well, unless the thing is water tight and you still have the terminals on the ends. My thought, don't touch ground. hahaha.

    Thanks for the translation. Did not know old Winky was so versed,

    It did look like a real demo, but the metal ladder, fuse box, dip in water while welding. That will kill a lot of their new customers

    Maybe that's their plan to reduce tech support calls?

    In all the years, only one injury on my calls, guy stuck his finger in the fan (when we went to the plastic bezel, he reached back to turn it off). And that fan haul a$$. Funny thing, he taped it all up and we continued the call and I went over the machine and all with him. I am sure hr needed stitches. Also, he broke a blade off and had to wait on a new fan blade to add insult to injury.

    No one zapped yet.

    Can't be good if he broke a blade off with his finger. Ouch! Given that he continued with the call, that is what I call motivation for his machine.

    For those who have power issues, maybe living in a 3rd world country wouldn't be too bad. If you need another circuit, just climb up on the roof and patch right in!
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    I've seen people catch on fire doing that.

    At the time, I thought it was among the most hysterically funny things I'd ever seen. I laughed until I cried, and then laughed some more. S/F.....Ken M

    Very good ... close ... any one who had done two tours had the thousand yard stare and would run towards the heavy fire in a hot L Z ... he was dinky dow ... my brother, Mike ... who's tank hit a dud thousand lb US bomb that Charlie rigged up for an anti tank mine ... killed the seven grunts riding on top but he and the driver inside survived ... he knows about that ... the VA has had him on disability for decades ... they recommended I go to them for psych stuff too ... have my own issues ... I don't talk about it ... I just don't go there ... stigma is BS ... I can hang W/O it ... probably shouldn't have brought it up ... forget about it ... let's just melt some steel
