This video isn’t related to diamond blades or grinders. We’re posting it here because we stumbled across it yesterday on the American Water Works Association’s YouTube channel. We were getting in the mood for the ACE13 conference next month, this video impressed us, it’s Friday, so why not.
This video was taken last year at the ACE12 conference. Here’s its description:
ACE12 featured the high-energy Pipe Tapping Contest, where top utility teams from section-level contests race to tap a cement-lined, ductile iron pipe.
You didn’t know that there were pipe tapping contests, did you? Or that there’s guys out there who can tap a ductile iron pipe in 70 seconds? Well, now you do.
Remember, we’ll be exhibiting the Ductile Iron Safety Blade, Ductile Iron Ring Saw Safety Blade and Carbide Chunk Blade at the American Water Works Association‘s ACE13 conference in Denver, Colorado from June 9 to 12!
