Re: The Fun Side

I cut and raised mine first so that I could insert the square tube all the way from the floor up to the curve in the roof for maximum overlap. A couple of heavy duty farm jacks are more than adequate for lifting but I welded much larger base supports in place for stability.

Re: The Fun Side

You have a beautiful long hair that will not last long if caught in any kind of powered rotary tool. Do yourself a favor and wear a net while working!.

Ditto for the long dress. Loose clothing can easily get caught in power tools. I found out the hard way and I didn't think my shirt was all that loose. Ended up with a belt sander (80 grit belt) eating my shirt and the skin on my stomach. Took about two seconds for it to happen.

Re: The Fun Side

Oh, yes, please do braid & secure your hair close to your head .
It's gross, but I've seen a photo of a fellow who was scalped after his hair was caught in a drill press at work!

Ditto the braids/hair net. Shawn Phillips, the famous singer, caught his hair in an outboard motor prop and it almost killed him. It messed him up bad.

Re: The Fun Side

That little 4 inch grinder isn't going to hurt anybody beyond cuts. She lives with that hair in those clothes, I'm sure she is aware of them. Just be carefull.

I hope your husband appreciates your interest and help. My wife makes fun of me.

That "little 4 inch grinder" turns at 11000 rpm. IT WILL CATCH HAIR!!!. And after catching the hair WILL SMACK YOU IN THE Face or head!!. And if you are lucky you will still have a piece of skin attached to your banged skull to regrow hair.

Re: The Fun Side

Please put your hair in a hat. Please wear pants. What everyone has been saying is true. It takes only a fraction of a second for power tools to hurt you. I know.

Re: The Fun Side

You better get a hard hat to wear while working on the bus. I wouldn't step within 50 ft of that bus with a 4" angle grinder without safety glasses, a face shield, ear protection, welding gloves, coveralls, and better shave your head. You better wear a respirator too.

Just be carefull that grinding wheel will cut skin like butter.

Not just the grinder, ANY power tool.
