You have to admit, he did some fine moves getting to that shut off lever, I was rather impressed with that back hand position that got the job done.

I'm going to give him a 6 for grace and style! ;D

Yep!
I had a similar experience with the 25/2, but twins have an additional rocking-spinning motion.
I re-lived my first start-up when I saw that one!   :D
I really liked how stoked he was! He is well and truely addicted.  ::)

Hi guys, Im the guy in the video that had to clean out his drawers after that episode! Yes, it was pretty darn scary, that's one reason that I put it up on youtube, so others can learn from my mistake. but all turned out well anyhow. The engine is sitting on 4 vibration isolation feet and they work well, no movement of the unit across the floor and very little vibration when running. I purchased them from Mcmaster carr, and they are worth every penny (about $200 smackeroonies).
