Welding.. Africa style!

When resources and materials are scarce ingenuity steps in to fill the gap. Ladies and gentlemen: a homemade welding rig:

Welding Africa style!

Now THAT is a transformer!

If I want some welding done on whatever “mad-max” vehicle I’m driving in the post apocalyptic/post comet strike world: I’ll be giving this guy a call to see what he’s coddled together out of scrappy wires, string, cardboard and metal.

Update: Image had died. That’ll teach me to rely on the internet!

    Yeah, I wonder whether this guy would be a master welder with proper equipment after learning with such a crude system? Of course there are a set of skills that you wouldn’t need at all with a more high teck solution, but like a kid getting a carbon fibre framed ultra light racing bicycle after years on a lead weighted 20 year old rusty BMX.

    I would say that this man is happier than many people imagine us to be, in fact I would like to be him because he is truly life.

    I apologize because I translate this.
