This. Takes. Nuts. Man On a Blade- Pics And Video

David Fay submits-

I was up at the Industrial Center yesterday morning when I saw this wild site! This guy is doing some finishing touches on one of those humongous blades hanging from a rope!  There wind gust were up to at least 35mph.

He certainly earned his pay!

Let me just state for the record that I probably definitely would have soiled myself 30 feet off the ground. What’s this guy making? Like $250 an hour?

    “Takes Nuts” is an understatement! What on earth can he possible be doing?

  2. O my goodness. Wow. I could never do that.

  3. Was he cleaning bug brains off the blade? The tip of the blade exceeds 160 mph.

    You know that cliche saying “Now I’ve seen everything…” ? Well, there ya go.

  5. Hope he was not taking the GMG sticka off.. just looking at this photo gives me sweaty hands..

    Ho-ly crap! That is a job I could never, EVER do. What possesses one to get into this line of work? Amazing! This is right up there with the guys who work on high-tension power lines.

    Just looking at the photos made me hyperventilate. There is no amount of money anyone could pay me to do that. I don’t think I could even have taken the pictures.
