Chop Cut Rebuild premiered on SPEED in 2004. The series creator, host, and Executive Producer is Dan Woods, who is also known for his long standing acting role in the successful Degrassi franchises as teacher/principal Raditch. Woods believes the series has enjoyed its longevity due to its focus on process – rather than personality. “Chop Cut Rebuild is about the real effort needed to restore iconic symbols of American engineering. It isn’t about throwing wrenches, or dysfunctional people”, says Woods.Read more
