    I admire your ability to build things but the video doesn't really help me to build a vest. I can't do stuff like this.

    ... just to add to that, even if I could do stufflike that, i don't have access to the equipment required.

    But we realise that's not the point. This video shows off your work (and why not) and may also prove very useful to others
    who do have the required skills and equipment.

    Well done.

    Hey, cmon.... all you need is a professional sewing machine and a 20t press + dies to cut the precise slots on the aluminum(?) sheet... It didnt show the cutting and forming (and painting) of all the metal parts. Its not impossible to achieve that pro-finishing look/quality at home....when you live in a metal shop with all the tools!
