Great video, Jules!  Goes to show that in order to be intelligent you don't need a 'formal education'  We all know at least one person like this gent who has a creative and inventive mind.

This man is a one of a kind. They don't make many like him. To still be working at 85 in strenious job and loving it is amazing. How could anybody not admire a man like him. bg

This is why I collect all the junk I can. It might lay around for years before I use it, but sooner or later I will use it. And I am to cheap ;D to buy some stuff I like to make it.

That was time well spent! Did you guys see the stride he has when walking? He's got more energy than people half his age. Truly he is one outstanding  man. Thanks for posting the video!

Thank you for the posting.  Not only does it show what a truly inventive person can do but he seems like a really nice individual.  No air of superiority just a good quality person.
