  1. I’m loving this series. Its great to see Adam and a fellow master craftsman at work. Quite a pair of characters together here.

  2. FANTASTIC! Watching the metal move with light hammer blows. It seems as if the metal just knows which way to move. This and the quick repair is a sure sign of a true master and unbelievable craftsman.

  3. It’s so fun to watch Adam learn something new, because usually I’m astounded at the knowledge he has and it seems like he knows how to do everything. Great series.

  4. I was hoping that the small chest plate was for Winston, But it looks like it was a miniature prototype for Hicks in Aliens, Knight Winston would look awesome 🙂

  5. They’re called Clecos. Used originally for fitting up aircraft parts before final riveting. They’re spring loaded and removable/reuseable. Great for a lot of applications.

  6. One of the best things about building a Caterham? Having an excuse to buy and use a full set of Clecos. Love them.

    Soooo enjoying this series

  7. Sorry, missed your question. they’re Clecos. Temporary rivets. Used in aerospace for assisting drilling and riveting of panels. Also used by other fabricators, including custom automotive/ kitcar builders.

  8. I literally subscribed for that content and boy I am glad I did, it’s such a blast to watch.. Thank you Tested for that amazing content! Watching the master Terry English at work is an amazing thing.

  9. Utterly fascinating as usual. All the secrets except the one about 40 years’ worth of experience making it all look easy. Adam, I am surprised you did not use a full-face shield when using that polisher. Or a light mask.
