Pretty cool, thanks for posting.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Looks like it's in better shape than that 57 Mopar from the time capsule did after 50 years.

Not much oxygen at that depth. I read some companies make a killing salvaging logs that fell off of barges in the 19th century.

There was a company in Superior Wi retrieving old growth logs from the depths of Lake Superior. They said the cold and lack of oxygen prevented rot.

The ships wheel in the video looks in good condition. I did see a video of a company that went after old logs sank and making high end furniture out of them.
