Randy, You know that Blue Bird buses don't take to being dismembered! You're letting the VooDoo out. There's a special shrunken head waiting for you at One Wanderlodge Way!

You've obviously never had a throwing wheel throw 5# of clay back at your groin!

Well,i had the thing turned and was holding it and shaking the saw to get the red hot blade to fall out and while shaking the saw i pushed the trigger,with my fingers holding the round blade lock,the blade lock moves fast!
and it will shove your fingers right into the blade guard.
My index finger got the **** mashed out of it and the nail turned blue etc.
Not a good day..
Of course i can see this wound so i washed it up and taped it up with masking tape.
Its nasty.

Then,today i had a guy here to help me and that same parts snagged his hand(he was wearing gloves) and cut him through the glove.
Those parts are jinxed,i swear they are..


.................................................. .and here I sit preparing to leave for Randy's later on this morning...............................I wonder what adventures are awaiting me.......

Watch out things come in what ....? dare I say threes...? bad ju-ju

I think it all has to do with having our minds elsewhere...

Right after I do something stupid.... so often it hurts... I make a concerted effort to do everything the safest way possible, while not taking that to extremes, I use vicegrips and will seldom ever hold parts anymore.. OUCH!
