Wimps! Must admit it could seem a bit precarious up there, particularly if you were trying to change a drive belt on a scanner gearbox, a regular occurence on KH radar of 1960 vintage.

Still if you fell off all you would have to do is a barrel roll followed by a double pike and straighten up just as you hit the pool.

Al mac, my question exactly. Also could anyone tell me where I can get a similar man sized angle-grinder (without the angle). Looks like a Russian brand...
