Note To Self
Do not plug 4" wide Porter Cable belt sander in, before attempting to remove from case...
Always attach dust collector bag to 4" Porter Cable belt sander, before lifting machine from case...
Do not lift 30# belt sander with no dust collector from case using pistol grip...
Do NOT set belt sander back down on leg, after being blinded by belt sander with no dust collector...
Have a 1/2" box end wrench handy to dislodge jeans and that chunk of your thigh from rear wheel of Porter Cable belt sander, after rubbing all that sawdust from eyes....
Have plenty of beer handy, to medicate pain from leg being sucked into belt sander....

If a friend ever wants to play "Ultimate Jenga," turn him down!

Oh, and make him do it OUTSIDE the basement if he won't listen to reason.

...or you'll be paying mom & dad to replace all the window glass in that room.

You must have been so Proud! No wait, that's not the right word exactly...

I can't believe I survived the dumb stuff I did when I was 17.

Me, neither.

After his friend called me outside and we got his pants off, I saw that it appeared to be 2nd degree burns, I gave him no slack.

When adding new oil during an oil change replace the plug for the filler hole before starting the bike. I've got oil on the ceiling in my garage. The stupid part is I've done it more than once.

When jacking bike off the ground, make sure bike is strapped to jack or hydraulic lock valve is fully closed and or safety catch bar is engaged before leaving bike to make coffee.

Make damn sure you tighten the vise up before you grind on that flat stock with an angle grinder.

Did it today and didn't quite tighten it enough. Halfway through with the job the grinder ripped it out and shot it out the open garage door narrowly missing my bike!

Then to compound my error I shut off the grinder and sat it down ( grinding wheel up, what do you think I'm stupid? Wait, don't answer that ) and ran out and picked up the afore mentioned stock that left the garage at a high rate of speed. DAMN!!!!!! that's hot!!!!!! I AM stupid!!!!!

Maybe I can weld up my new light bar tomorrow without electrocuting or burning myself or the house down. I'll let ya know.

The things I go through because I'm too cheap to spend 50 bucks.

Never go blasting around in your brand new sports car after the first autumn rain. I worked pizza delivery in college The boss had just got a new Eagle Talon turbo. I'm in the car with him and he decides to push it a little. I even recall saying the words "too fast" as he enters a corner, and plows straight into the curb folding the wheel under the car. The best part was the tow truck driver, who's first words were "oooo, self-inflicted".

You are really excited to have found a 300ci inline 6 for your 64 ford truck. You tear into it and get it stripped down in about two hours. Time to flip it over on the engine stand to take off the pan and get a look at the crankshaft. You go and stand at the head of the engine stand and start rotating that big ole block of iron 180 degrees. Wow, this is hard!

Man! That shit is heavy! Glad the Northern Tool engine stand is built so well!!

Oh shit, what is that on the floor! Fuck! A full pan of oil is running out the top of the engine all over the garage floor. It is 5 feet accross and expanding......
