I'm curious as to what people find to be sloppy. He clearly does
measure his components, and the speed at which he works is a result of
the scale of his print.
I can't wear gloves during the coating process. I tried it a long
time ago, but found it to be very awkward. After handling gallons of
dichromates during my years, I think I've had to wash it off my skin
twice. There's something to be said for just being careful. But
then, I don't eat with a bib, either.
As for the lights, I could be wrong but I figure they were raised up
in order to make the video.
