    Good day to work outdoors.
    They seldom had the opportunity to approve/disapprove.
    No, grounding doesn't work, it means at least one parent is grounded too, plus it makes being home a punishment, not a good lesson.
    Both of my Grandfathers.
    I am my own imaginary friend.
    Salvaging a motor off of a demolished air compressor to power an horizontal band saw for cutting steel. The saw came from an industrial shop and has a 3phase motor on it. I don't have that kind of power here so I'm converting it with a 110V single phase. The air compressor head exploded and threw parts all over the shop, good thing no one was in the place at the time. Fabricating a mount for the new motor, re-gearing it to account for the higher rpm and going over the saw to set it up, et cetera...Fun huh? Steel fabrication.
    Dirty with metal filings and scorchmarks.
    But this thing will improve my precision on future steel fab (it's kinda meta).

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
