Have you ever been traveling on business or vacation and seen a piece of welding equipment that made you think "The guys at home have GOT to see this"?

I was in Rwanda last week and in addition to several open air welding shops (no PPE), I got an up close and personal view of this 240v SMAW transformer. It was being used for decorative iron work on a stair railing in a new building in Kigali, the national capital. It hummed and smoked, and made me more appreciative of my Dynasty 200DX.
