Video clip - Fenton: watch a vase being "swung"
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:38:30 PM »
I understand that the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs film (featuring Fenton) airs in the US tomorrow (Tuesday) but there’s a clip up on the ‘net right now that shows work at the glory hole and the amazing technique of “swinging” (a vase). You need to put up with an ad first then the video starts. It's only short but really good to watch the vase being "swung".

Fascinating  :clap: Thanks for sharing, Glen  :-*
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfngt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben sprt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfllt, und ein offeneres Verstndnis fr die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thanks for showing us this, Glen! Isn't that extraordinary. I'd always envisaged the whole arm swinging like a helicopter blade!  :spls2: :-[ Spinning the rod like a baton is a far more controlled way to do it.
