* In ''{{Starcraft}}'', if you watch the [=SCVs=] closely you'll see that whether they are constructing or repairing, vehicles or buildings, all they ever do is weld. In fact, [[AllThereInTheManual according to the manual]], that's all they ''can'' do, since their only tool (or at least, the one that hurts the most when used as a weapon) is a "fusion cutter."

* ''Series/AmericanChopper'' of course shows the whole bike building process from start to finish, although the producers still tend to include a lot of manly welding or grinding shots during scene transitions.

What's the easiest way to show your characters hard at work fixing/repairing/building something? Show them welding, of course! Also, it will always be showy, sparky, ''manly'' welding, using electric arcs or oxyacetylene: Precision soldering irons are for wussies. The manly man at the right is cutting steel, probably *before* building something.
