    Nowadays people are so paranoid about getting hurt. Mostly the large corporations and they are not so much worried about employee safety but more about liability to cover their a**.

    Back then the building trades people don’t worry about safety. We just man up and have fun.

    Those were the ‘Dodge Days’ of doing stuff like that.

    Scary how it was back then…..Sigh!

    Lots of pictures on the web of stuff like that. It was a different time for sure.

    Okay , so today someone (newish) employee was using a grinder , apparently he cut himself , and right after that , the health and safety people were pulling all the grinders off the shop floor ,
    They went into the welding shop/room and ask for all their grinders , my friend laughed and said if you take them away , we will be at a work stoppage ,
    That’s definitely a tool that is needed daily in that department
    Another crazy incident in the shop today

    This seems to be the thing Safety people do. They do the same thing where I work. Then after the investigation is done. They implement to new rules and training.
    We had a Millwright grab a piece of steel after welding it and burnt his had.
    Our QA Manager wanted to remove all air guns from our department. The reason for this that tips are coming loose and falling off and people are notice this. Sometimes this is cause to miss use of the air gun.

    @GTokley
    Yes those air guns can be actually dangerous , they removed ours years ago , then brought them back after drilling small 1/8 holes at an angle about 30 ish or something like that in the tips , it reduces the air pressure coming out of the gun from up wards of around 90 psi to a safer psi I believe it’s around 20 to 40 psi
    Due to some BH blowing air on himself and creating issues on his skin 🤷

    Funny you should mention that , I was just watching a video of old footage of the construction build of the Chrysler building , it was incredible to see them working without all the fancy safety measures we have in place today , some guys were scaling up the scaffolding with big wrenches and rachets in the back pocket , I wonder how many people got injured or worse.

    I think I saw that footage and/or something similar and I can’t believe that those tools were not tethered.
    That and other things made me think at some sort of studio made footage.

    Went for a long walk today. Saw a few interesting things. Migrating Mergansers, Migrating Tundra Swans, Ice where the water ran away from under it, and just the river itself.

    What’s wrong with it? Or special?
    I can’t figure it out.

    They replaced our guns with ones that had a spring and check ball in the tip to reduce pressure and volume. The tips were epoxied in the gun…. easy fix. I think I fixed every gun in the shop LOL

    Our Maintenance Manager wanted to epoxy our air guns tips in also. But the QA department didn’t like that idea.

    Man I do not like air guns with the reduced flow tips. Sometimes it seems you can blow harder than what is coming out of the air gun.

    I was clearing the area behind my back fence and came across some ducks.

    They saw me approaching and left. I looked and saw that they left something.

    Should I move the eggs so they are 6′ apart from each to respect social distancing?
