Slowly making my way through replacing all the worn rollers this morning
One of the problems with not being the only one in the workshop is sharing equipment. Drill bits and taps.. fed up of everyone using and abusing them, never find the one you want etc etc (only a mild moan )
Made myself a stand, 2.5 to 12.5mm drills, 3 to 10mm taps.
A couple bits missing but that' in my box now...shan't have to go hunting for bits anymore.
Nice weather for framing
I have to go hunting for my tools now and again, worst one was my £450 Snap-on battery impact gun that had been "borrowed" and left outside.
Years ago I lent a chap my brand new 3/8ths ratchet, saw him attempting to hammer in a C90 front wheel spindle with it!, I was bloody livid!.
I guess we all have that...
Toolkit about 6ft away from me, I'm working on a machine, I turn round to see a guy rustling through it.
'Whatcha doing Tavares ?'
'Looking for a screwdriver '
'That's my personal kit mate, i dont mind lending stuff but please ask'
'Sorry, I didn't think '
David, kind of apprentice.
'Can I borrow your tape measure ?
'Yeah help yourself mate '
He measured something on the floor, stood halfway up and tossed MY tape on the floor so it clattered down (I assume he was going to use it again)
'That's MY tape you just chucked down
Ratchets as hammers, had that too.
bloody annoys me that does, if I borrow something it gets treated better than if it was mine , and I look after my own stuff
Remember I posted the above last year?
Well this happened today...
A pet hate of mine!
As an apprentice anything we bought, the company would pay half, so I got a full set of micrometers, and various other measuring equipment before the four years were up. I also bought my own set of drills as I cannot be bothered looking for the company equipment.
I used to let the apprentice use my stuff, I told him to put them back as soon as he was finished. First time he left something out I warned him, second he had to go hunting for company equipment.
I grind all my own drills, and it is surprising how many machinists cannot grind them. (A basic skill when you use them all the time) It tells me a lot about the machinists ability when I look at their drills!
Sorting out issues at a modular buildings company
Flow wrapping machine, an old one, is being shipped out so a quick check over and service. Found one of the 6 film crimp rollers has stiff bearings...a fairly normal occurrence as they spray water all over the place.
Sub assembly removed..
View from underneath...
Maybe a couple hours work, no rush, nice steady job.
Big p*ncture fairy at work here!!
I do not miss lorry wheels, started on the trucks 57 years ago in Twickenham and could not get off them quick enough.
I prefer it when I just have to fill a defect sheet out
Despite there being not much depth of snow in PE28 country most of it ended up on this road following yesterdays brisk wind. So after a false start and having to change diesel filters on the JCB Loadall I eventually shifted some snow.
