Even with modern tools like a Pull-max, planishing hammer or English wheel, this would be a major undertaking for many, many hours. Watch this shed-dwelling mad scientist whip out a suit of armor in a fraction of the time – albeit with far less “precise” results.
Behold the Steel Belted Pillow Monster (Really. Don’t do this at home)Colin Furze, screw-ball extraordinaire, wanted to get a little closer to a fireworks display, and by “a little closer” I mean, right in the middle of it.
