Thought this was funny/interesting/disturbing?



From their YouTube page... Pianos that are "too costly to repair" are everywhere... so James and Barrett decided to sacrifice THIS one to science. Who knew a "saws all" could really cut through a piano?

After they gutted it there was nothing left but the wood, of course you can cut that with a saws all! If they really wanna impress me, cut one in half with the plate still in it. With the right blade a saws all will go through the metal parts of a car, bit I don't know about a cast iron piano plate. That might be too much...

that was quite interesting. Never seen that done before.

At least it was destroyed for a purpose, and the action and stuff saved.

I hate the videos on youtube of dumb teens smashing a nice old piano with no intentions to use it for parts what so ever.
