Now that I know, I have seen bill's work in person it is truly amazing. I think micro nitro and other machinist have real compitition on their hands. If that's what it was about.

Firefighting tools, left to right drip torch, 1 gallon canteen, swatter, halligan tool, McLeod, prybar and a can style backpack pump
The tools are mostly bought, but the hose reel, nozzle, tank, fencing and brackets are all scratchbuilt.
I've built a few utility bodies, here is one I'm working on for a salvage truck.
