|Thread: Ever have one of those days..?|
You Gents are lucky, snapped My Achilles tendon 2 weeks ago. Had surgery and now confined to the recliner for 8 weeks at least. Shop is in basement, 10 feet away and I am not allowed in. Plenty of work as Spring time is here. I get to watch through the window.
Worked at a place that used Alodine on Aluminum. Quit the process and discarded the solution down the drain. About a week or 2 later the Sewage police knocked on the door and asked to see the floor drain in the place. Guy said Yep it's here. Boss said "whats up?". They said "someone dumped acid down the drain". We said "not Here." They said "look here, the acid cleaned up the rusty iron and did it out 1/2 mile away." Asked around and Someone else out of the Department did it after stepping in the pan of it in the dark, after being somewhere They were not supposed to be.It had to fill Their shoe up and where They took a step it ate into the cement floor. Sewage Cop laughed and said don't do it again.

|Thread: Dialect expressions|
John what else could it mean? Don't know that one. Lancaster, Ohio, the other one.
|Thread: Where's my Dykem blue gone - there's no need to read this|
Lost something in the shop, only 16'x16', never left the room. Did not have time to duplicate the search, so I made a list of all the places I have already searched. Did not label the list so now I know where I have searched , but I forgot what for.
|Thread: French Mystery Tool|
A cleverly designed frustration tool used to baffle British Men and Yanks at the same time.
|Thread: Just desserts|
There are more lawful ways to earn a daily crust. I am not an overly worried animal lover, but on a game preserve it's wrong. The animals won this one.
|Thread: What makes your bristle?|
Someone scrubbing something else with it while You are not there. Made anybody mad lately?
|Thread: Sending of heavy items|
Just when I learn about a thing called "Metric" someone mentions "stone". Whose stones did they use? How did this come about? .
|Thread: Using magnets|
I have about 12" of hard drive magnets, cannot get another within about 6" of it or they get really friendly and will shatter one or two when they meet.
|Thread: Todays DUMBO award|
Whew, for a minute I thought I was going to get nominated for an award, thought no one was watching.
|Thread: What would one use this adaptor for?|
I have bought about 10 items and have had around 2 mistakes. They told Me to keep the item after sending a pic of the shipping order and the UPC on the box. They promptly sent the correct replacement. The next to last order of a tool holder came in minus a carbide insert. I thought "foul" did not say anything. Ordered another tool holder and it came with an extra carbide insert, "no harm, no foul."
|Thread: Knurling speed|
I have knurled Nylon and it seems as if there were a material that would be hard for the wheels to be forced into alignment, something soft would show the problem. Had no problems.

Any idea what the friend did for a living?

|Thread: Why do we do it?|
Ya know this forum has the ambiance of setting down with a couple of friends with a cup of tea or a brew or two. It is a great place to converse and ask questions, give answers, and generally have a relaxing time. The thread drift adds to it, and provides information in totally unexpected ways.

Bulk fasteners are available in the USA.Tractor Supply, Rural King, Menards and Lowes all have Them. Plus many independent hardware stores.
|Thread: Just Done Something Stupid!!|
