Meet the Host
John McCalmont will stop at nothing to discover how things work. For as long as he can remember, he's been slicing things apart to reveal the mysteries that lie inside. When he's not busy taking a buzz saw to anything from an armored car to a pinball machine, John finds other ways to stay active. A true outdoorsman, he regularly competes in bass fishing tournaments at the semi-professional level and recently planted a garden in his front yard. Back in the day, he put himself through college on a music scholarship and got his kicks racing motorcycles around Los Angeles. John lives with his wife and two daughters in Heath, Texas.
