So does it look hard or easy, faster or slower than you imagined. Also if I do another video like this give me some subjects to talk about, don’t have to be related to tunnelling, anything.

I spent two years hand digging a basement under my 1917 farmhouse. I then learned concrete work, framing, electrical, and plumbing. Now the basement has a theater, my company's office, my son's bedroom, laundry room, workshop, and a secret passage. I matched the trimwork to that of the original house. It took years, but it was something better to do with my time than watch TV, that is for sure!

I'm sure kids will say "..in that time you could've become a master at Minecraft..!" Time spent well, sir. That's also how I try to go about things: starts by being broke, and minimizing costs for that one idea you have. And you end up with new skills & experience, and the idea you had is now a reality. (That said - whenever you dig underneath your houses' foundation, remember to consult a professional too ;))

@POWAH! POWER! 🔴 What Is Islam? 🔴 Islam is not just another religion. 🔵 It is the same message preached by Moses, Jesus and Abraham. 🔴 Islam literally means ‘submission to God’ and it teaches us to have a direct relationship with God. 🔵 It reminds us that since God created us, no one should be worshipped except God alone. 🔴 It also teaches that God is nothing like a human being or like anything that we can imagine. 🌍 The concept of God is summarized in the Quran as: 📖 { “Say, He is God, the One. God, the Absolute. He does not give birth, nor was He born, and there is nothing like Him.”} (Quran 112:1-4) 📚 🔴 Becoming a Muslim is not turning your back to Jesus. 🔵 Rather it’s going back to the original teachings of Jesus and obeying him.

I think you're all missing the reality of this channel, it's not about practicality. Making a relatively micro version of the ones they use in Switzerland would just be cool. That's what its all about. Obviously it isn't practical, but sounds and stuff isn't the issue. You all seem to be thinking of excavators and stuff. I'm talking about an actual boring machine that's basically a tube with a cutter head on the end, conveyor out the back, worm drive to keep it pushing against the face of the rock, and a gap to put concrete slabs against the walls as it cuts. Obviously for something like digging the vents the steel tube he uses is way faster and more practical. Not to mention the conveyors and the reinforcement wouldn't be neccesary. And trying to do that at a small scale is pointless. Let it dig the vent then side a pvc pipe in the hole. Job done. Still, it's obviously not practical but neither was the ripsaw tire or the screw driven "tank" thing. Quick edit: keep in mind this would likely be electrically driven. So you would have the sound of electric motors, and rocks falling. He's already making more noise than that.

@MattsAwesomeStuff to clarify, he is not hauling that much volume (measured in cubic meters) in the grand scheme of a construction project. He is not hauling a dump truck’s worth of subsoil out a day. Most any construction site that needs fill dirt, won’t notice his contribution. If they have to haul off themselves, they won’t want his waste soil.
MattsAwesomeStuff Hace un mes
@Shannon J. He is literally hauling tons a day. There were, what, 8 baskets? How much does each of those weigh? 80lbs? That's 640 lbs, in just 20 minutes of tunneling. In an hour of tunneling he'd have a ton.

from someone who's been following the story of your tunnels for almost a year now I'm loving seeing these articles from the papers popping up trying to paint you in a different light. apparently just wanting to do something for the fun of it isn't enough these days, you have to have a reason, so they chose one for you... 'to avoid the rain' smh so maybe we can give them something else to write about, do you find the digging therapeutic? like say you're having a bad day, would the digging help you align your thoughts and figure things out as you dig? I find myself relating the process to when I'm playing a building game, like Minecraft. I know the build is going to take a long time and can be repetitive but the finished product will be worth it and the process is good for me to reflect. Either way, Thanks Colin for doing what you do, It inspires me to keep chasing my idea's that others think are outside the box

@A.S.J.G Yes. Dynamite would be a faster way to dig a tunnel. However, I doubt if his neighbors would like their pictures knocked off the walls and car alarms going off all day long! Ka-boom!

it depends on the material to be dug...that also dictates the methods to dig it ... the harder the rock the harder the tunneling but usually more stable structure ...the great escape pine forest and mostly sandy soil tunneling done by hand and boxed in as they progressed. lamac mine val dor que canadian shield granite pneumatic diamond drills 12 16 feet long drill 1-2 inch holes about 60 holes clears an 8 foot section of tunnel with a lot of dynamite . colin has mostly clay so soft digging . theres nothing crazy about the engineering here except the bill that is insane i guarantee even without knowing what that is!

Hey Colin, you could try to modify the chisel on the rams head to make digging faster. if you weld an extra piece of metal about an inch away from the cutting edge at a bigger angle than that of the chisel head you could make the rocks dislodge a lot quicker and not have to plunge that deep everytime. maybe at 30° or so.

Awesome video. Love to see a live video of the tunnel digging. A warning for headphone users at the intro would be nice. Wow that was loud.

it looks how I imagined it would look as someone who dug an irrigation ditch for a friend's garden. id almost say you should do a live stream like this have someone watch chat to help relay questions to you. one question I think I have asked twice now is what type of rock you are digging into?

Hi @colinfuze am curious can a bigger/wider bit be added to the end so you can break more rock at once or is it easier doing it with a small part. also curious are you not worried about any falling debris falling on your head?

@FreePress The ceiling on a mine is called the "back". In some places it is supported with timbering. Mostly it is solid rock and requires no timbering. We are not digging a new tunnel but clearing out an old one that has collapsed. 1300 feet long!

With all the crazy vehicles Colin's made over the years, I'm surprised he hasn't made some sort of tunneling machine or robot, especially seeing how tedious and arduous this is. Perhaps some sort of mini hydraulic digger that he's constructed down their or in pieces. It could have a couple of different ends that work simultaneously. The chisel he already has and perhaps an inverted pincer that cleaves rocks apart after entering the gaps. I'm picturing something which is a cross between Sir Killalot from Robot Wars and a ride-on tracked loader. It can be ride-on or remote controlled. It can have a scoop at the bottom which can catch a lot of the rocks and funnel them into buckets or into custom carts. The carts can have casters on them and if he chucks some plywood down, he can just push them along. Perhaps more capacity than the buckets and less energy to carry. Considering how much tunnelling he's done, It could save quite a bit of time and make for loads of cool videos in the process. P.S. maybe he can design himself a funky hard hat in the meantime too.

Watching you work is entertaining and relaxing in its own right. Personally I would wear a hard hat. Not like the jobs worth do in the middle of an empty field, more like someone who is pushing their head underneath a rock face that is crumbling.

In the time waiting for Update 9 to come out, I was going through an emotional rollercoaster. Looking forward to seeing the Update but growing ever more impatient when it did not appear. I felt like an addict deprived of his drug. Time was stretching out towards infinity. It was becoming unbearable. I was cursing Colin and then immediately feeling shame for it. And when Update 9 came along, it was a bit short of half an hour. I felt ripped off. Surely that long wait deserved more than this! But lo and behold! A real time show of the work and the labour and the effort. How patient Colin is, moving dirt and rubble handful by handful, heavy bucketful by heavy bucketful. This is how mining was done before mechanisation and still happens in some parts of the world today. Which made me think, why don't you build a mini TBM to hurry up the process, Colin?!!!

Interesting And what interests me the most is where did all the material taken out of the tunnel go ??? We have strict laws where such material could be deposited and in those places it would usually be very expensive, so we manage to take it to a construction site and they will use it there to cover the terrain or whatever.

In previous videos I saw you guys spending quite some effort getting the stuff out of the pipe after boring a ventilation hole. Have you considered making a plunger + backstop and just use the hydraulic press to push the mud out of the pipe? You might even sell some of the core samples to your fans ;)

I wonder how many times while tunneling a falling rock hit an arm, hand, head, or foot. I keep worrying Colin will bend over to put a chunk in a bucket and something will fall and hit him. Stay safe Colin! This is suck a cool project. The hydraulics are definitely easier on the ears than a hammer drill, rotary hammer, Jack hammer, and spade.

Definitely should be wearing a hard hat for work like this. Guy I know was working in a deep trench when some rocks came down and landed on his head, ended up breaking a vertebra from the impact and was the hospital for like a month, but if he didn't have a hard hat on he would have probably died.

Just a thought, I know there are small sized excavators and even stand alone, tow behind, excavator units. Couldn't you fab up a small excavator with extendable arms to make the work go faster and be less labor intensive, especially with the clean up. Just curious if you've thought about something like that.

This shows how much work actually goes into this. 30 minutes to get 2' closer to the goal. And that's not including picking up all the rocks.

When the digging is at an end, I think the hydraulic tool should be given a place of honor somewhere in the tunnel for all the hard work it did. Although I can also understand not wanting to see it ever again :)

This definitely helps explain why it took so long to dig the tunnel. Obviously there are faster ways to dig a tunnel but they are also more expensive and much much louder! When are we getting the 12 hour tunnel digging live stream?

@Ian Haskins I wouldn't say the pick is any faster. He doesn't have much space to wield it with force and he doesn't dig down so much. Wielding a pick in an upwards digging motion is much more exhausting than if you can use gravity to help you.p
