Watch your feet!!!
« on: July 01, 2012, 08:54:50 PM »
Today I was welding. I had a length of I beam I was using as a straight edge to pull some sheet metal straight before I welded it. Everything went good. The part came out pretty good. It was a big piece and a little awkward. When I lifted it up it hooked the I Beam and knocked it off the saw horses. Darn thing landed right on my toes.

I'll probably live

A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

My sympathies, Wes. Hope no toe bones were broken.

I bet it made you hopping mad  :)

I've cut the end off it twice, but it's still too short

It looks a bit like a tempering chart

 Hi Powder Keg Tried that on two separate occasions I have the greatest sympathy with you. Now safety boots is the footwear to use in the workshop. Hope you heal quickly.
