What ever happened to all that money we sent down to Mexico?Mike Finley said:That looks like Mexico to me. I was amazed at the amount of construction they do down there without much in the way of tools. I sat at a bar and watched for an hour a team of 20 men dismanteling a building with nothing more than a couple of sledge hammers 3 shovels and a wheel barrow.
4 guys standing around, at least it looked like it but each one had a job. As 3 watched, one guy would bash the wall with the sledge hammer 3-4 times, then the next guy would kick over the cracked parts, the 3rd guy would start shoveling the debris into a wheel barrow and the 4th guy would wheel it away. Never more than one guy moving at the same time ever.
Oh and everyone of them was wearing nothing on their feet but sandles!
They also mix concrete in the street by making a ring and pouring the water in the middle, kind of like a little lake then they shovel in sand that they screen from the beach and concrete and mix it with a shovel.
Pretty wild. Then I saw why so much is done by hand. A Dewalt 18 volt cordless recip saw was $600 in a store there.
