The most painful accident I took was when I dropped a 7" angle grinder with a wire wheel on my bare thigh (while running). You would not believe how much she bled and how much peroxide we poured on that sucker.

OUCHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I did about the same thing with a paint/skin removal wheel with the grinder locked on. It slammed into my stomach right about where women get C-sections (sp?) and was one of the most painful things EVER.Ended up messing up about 3 fingers and my stomach but oh well, lesson learned right? lol I even had two shirts on and it made short work of those.

I kind of see what you mean- but the plug thing is kind of confusing me. They have motorcycle 12v batts that are pretty tiny, making that part wouldn't be too bad at all. Also, light up skulls are always awesome

Thanks man If I ever get enough of these pointless things made I might rent one of those vendor tables one weekend just to test the waters out.

Awesome stuff. I love the spiders, I'd buy one. Would be sweet to have a spider with it's two front legs up in the air to hang keys on.

Cool stuff... I just realized that I think the key the man figure is holding actually would fit in the lock on the female's heart area?

Nice.

The knife blade looks pretty wicked, seems like I have seen some things like that in prison movies made from 3 toothpicks, a bar of soap and a foil tray!!!!

Haha yep-that key fits. Yea that blade isn't quality metal or anything but I was just messing around. I need to find it and put a handle on it but I have no clue where I put it lol.

Might be cool to take that knife blade design and do it in a quality metal using the first one as a mock up. Would make a cool display seeing your first one and then a shined up stainless version of it. Sort of like... "the evolution of a knife."

Either way, good start. Someday I am going to make a knife, but I have a lot to learn before I do that!!!

Thanks man If I ever find it again I'll look into doing the nice one out of surgical stainless or something- I kind of want to try out a tonto blade at some point.

So this weekend included the following:

- Got my compressor motor fixed (ended up being the start Capacitor)
- bought and re-wired a cutmaster 42 plasma cutter to be operated by hand instead of the cnc table the guy had it on
- semi- plumbed a temporary air system (it meets my demands right now but if it starts falling short I'll do everything bigger)


Dessicant dryer-->oil/water seperator-->filter/regulator-->another filter-->plasma


It works!!



I officially love this thing by the way.

If you look at the "T" I have one regulator filter followed by a shut off valve then an inline oiler for air tools that require oil and the other way I have a shut off valve leading to another filter/regulator with no oiler for the plasma.

So actually got some work on the jeep done last night:

KC daylighters from craigslist --$20
Took the bumper off, removed the rubber bumper things, and bolted these things on there I had laying around



Cut the front part off



Drilled some holes



Mounted, I'll take it back apart and bedline/reinstall everything tonight.

subscribed! Great stuff you got here, James.

I've been threatening to learn how to weld for the last 3 or 4 years... now that I've got a Wrangler and the itch to mod, I guess it's about time I do learn.
