They are defonitely to be respected.... but what a nice tool to have....
I used the one in the video for a short while....you have to get in the zone where your not distracted at all... or you could lose a finger real quick!

If anyone has one sitting around and is afraid of it... I'll give it a good home!

I've done enough damage to my thumbs with a regular hand held hammer. If I tried one of those I would never be able to hitch hike again.

My dad had one he used a lot. When I was a little kid hanging out in the shop I would always have to run for cover 'cause I hated the noise!

That was a great video to enjoy my coffee with.

I also worked on that Yoder about 12 or so years ago. Faye is a true gentlemen. I had been saving my coins to buy a Yoder, then Monster Garage came out and the prices trippled over night. Still saving my coin! If I had a Merc, I trade in a heartbeat.

I always wondered when Bobby Walden bought his and what he payed for it.

Watching the video has reinforced the fact that l know nothing about metal shaping , a great tool in the right hands by the look of it.

That is pretty cool! He makes it look easy. I'm sure it takes a while to get used to it and being super careful on the whole "thumb" situation. One of these days I'd love to learn from a master like him!!
