The Safety Elf might disagree...

Talking of which - wearing sandals when welding. What could go wrong.....
I doubt that there are safety elves in the Kerala countryside from what I saw on a trip. Here in the UK, they would definitely have a ball, adding safety features.

TBF, I can't think of any H&S laws/regulations/rules that we have which were not brought in after (often well after) it became obvious that too many people were dying/losing bits/getting ill, nor which were not opposed by companies who faced inreased costs if they had to stop doing the things which were killing/injuring/making people ill.

Hi,

Thanks for asking Ben yes I'm doing fine but wish the weather was better.

Many thanks for posting your interesting video of your backhoe build; you'll be over the moon to have successfully completed it and be able to use it. You'll have a queue at your door wanting jobs doing as word spreads. Looing at the arms are the members just tack welded or are they fully welded out of camera shot also I thought you were going to damage your welder and perhaps also damage the trailing mains cable; I fully understand you being so keen to try it out.

Full credit to you Ben for the whole project; it's unique and the end result is something very useful that will save no end of backache.

Have you considered sending the details to the car manufacturer; I wonder what their reaction would be; one of amazement I'd guess.

I've also witched your second video showing you using the backhoe in anger; it's nice to see a success story when there's so much doom and gloom in the world.

Kind regards, Colin W.
