How did Bruce Faulseit lose his hand?
According to Bruce’s website, he was born without a right hand.
He writes: “I was born missing my right hand but that has not stopped me or slowed me down.”
Watching Bruce’s craftsmanship on-screen is impressive as it is, but knowing that he only has one working hand makes him all the more applaudable.
According to the NJ Pen, Peter Brown and Kaitlyn Debiasse along with fabricator Mike Hosier made Bruce as prosthetic arm. Speaking to the NJ Pen, Peter said: “The reason why I think they wanted to do it was [they wondered]‘If we help him make this, what is he really capable of?’”
