" You might be a head porter if..."

Post by Carnut1 » Wed Mar 21, 2018 6:08 am

You need to explain to the wife that the rust in every sink but only your shower is from the rusty water main.
You have no problem walking around all day with an aluminum splinter in your foot.
You could crush a "paper pushers" hand without trying.
You have no idea how "mechanics or engine builders" would assemble parts that clearly could use some burr action.

#4). The out line on your face from the respirator / dust mask takes 5 hours to go away!

#5) you look at little model air plane 2 cycle motors and wonder how much more you can yank out of them!

#6). When you have a whistling port during a flow test you find a way to entertain yourself by moving the valve enough to play Mary had a little Lamb just to break the monotony!
The next port I get that whistle's I am going to practice playing the lead song from Titanic and post it on YouTube!

Yup, I forgot about that!
I have had to have iron shards not just removed from my eyes, but cut out because after a 3 day wait my eye healed over it, lol!
Although it was not funny at the time!

Numb hands. Your shirt and pants pockets sticking you! As far as the splinter in your shoe, you must have not had a good one yet.....they get immediate attention.

You have 8 grinders and each one has been named. You keep a earth magnet close to pull out the shaving. Your the only one in the shop with shop towels wrapped around their ankles to keep shaving out of your shoes. I have found duck tape works best

you fall asleep dreaming of designing a specialty burr just so you can shave off 37 seconds of time spent per port

you buy another compressor just to be able to.. "port you other compressors intake and exhaust system" :mrgreen:

start moving and welding stuff just because those stupid OEM's wanted it all to fit under a closed hood

devise a method to hook up leaf blowers and pressure washers just to "see how yarn blows around" and water collects

Your dreams at night are of having X-ray vision and of long shank burrs which can operate at a 45-degree angle.
