If it doesn't bother this woman I have been with for 44 years I would be a damn fool to let it bother me.

I don't know what you guys are whimpering about. I would be glad to get my pony tail caught in something.

I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas.

LOL, that happen to me one time but it was my shirt! I was laying on my creeper welding the fender well on a pickup bed and I hear some guy screaming at me and then hitting me with a fire blanket. Burnt a hole about six inches wide right on my belly!

I mean, it isn't like brushing against something I am talking I JUST welded it yet I grabbed the damn thing with my bare hand.

If I hadn't seen how nice your welding is I'd just say some people should stay at thier desk where its safe.but then some people arn't safe anywhere..I knew a guy with one eye he said he lost it in the war,but what really happend was he and an office coworker were shooting paper clips at each other and he caught one in the eye. he always had at least three bandaids on his fingers from paper cuts too.
the last place I want to be is in the office ,it too dangerous for someone like me....So make the best of it maybe you can color in those thread marks that are burned into your skin so it looks like a biker tatoo with (dont tread on me ) or something...or something like that old Kung fu movie where he had to lift a red hot bowl of coals with his fore arms....but what ever you do dont tell the truth about how dumb you are ,trust me ,make up some kind of cool tuff guy story.like you were working on a high rise and the guy that heated the bolts would throgh them to you and you caught them bare handed then the lunch bell rang so you just carried it until lunch was over....See ,you can get good at it after a while....
Man, back in the big war I got a lot of similar looking marks from hot shrapnel,but my most recent I got on my search for Bin laden,those crazy guys, when they ran out of bullits they shot bolts at you.....and those suckers were HOT....

Was a farrier for several years and when you hot fit the shoe to the foot it smells like setting fire to a wet bone. Sure do get a good fit that way. Don't do much hot shoeing down here in the South unless it's for a corrective shoe. Heating and cooling shoes up in the North also kinda hardens/tempers them which is better in that rocky terrain.

hot fit ?

We had the old blacksmith shop on the ranch, My stepdad and his brothers bought out all the neighbors and all their old customers moved away so they worked winters in a shop in a near by silver-lead mine. . My step dad used to shoe horses, sometimes he would hot fit a shoe to a hoof. It would smoke a little bit and then he would put the horse's foot in a bucket of water before checking the fit.

wretched ratchet One time the local blacksmith was forging a corretive shoe for this mans horse and he had the forge going strong and the shoe was white hot. They both looked up and noticed that the local "idiot" was headed towards the shop. The blacksmith said "Watch this!" and he laid the hot shoe on the face of the anvil. The "idiot" kinda eased around the shop and saw the white hot shoe. He reached down and picked it up and then let it go very quickly. The blacksmith and the customer laughed and the blacksmith said "Was it Hot?" and the "idiot" replied "Nawwww, it just doesnt' take me long to look at a horse shoe !"

Now Brian, if you do that when you weld the short ends back together so as not to waste any you are going to have one ugly rod

73oldsman Never solder two wires together while sitting on your door sill while holding the wires together above your legs, oh yeah, while wearing shorts! I was in Arizona, and it was hot!. So was the little solder divot, as I watched it slowly ball up and drop down on my leg. Burned a nice little hole in the skin. Hell, I could go on, but I've got to get ready for work...Later!
