  • Quick Trip to the Store / The Death of an Engineer

    Quick Trip to the Store

    A woman rushed into the supermarket to pick up a few items.
    She headed for the express line where the clerk was talking
    on the phone with his back turned to her.

    "Excuse me," she said, "I'm in a hurry. Could you check me
    out, please?"

    The clerk turned, stared at her for a second, looked her up
    and down, smiled and said, "Not bad."
    The Death of an Engineer

    An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates.
    St. Peter checks his dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer --
    you're in the wrong place."

    So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in.

    Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements.
    After a while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

    One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, "'s it going down there in hell?"

    Satan replies, "Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is
    going to come up with next."

    God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake -- he should never have gotten down there; send him up here."

    Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him."

    God says, "Send him back or I'll sue."

    Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah right, and just where are you going to get a lawyer?"

    I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

    Reply to Question about tilting head saws
    by Bill Wilson
    I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

    Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

    about an inch and a half.

    High ceilings make a house look super elegant. You have the option of doing some cool interior doors that are not possible with 8 foot ceilings. A lot of the large very old houses in my area have those....

    And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

    Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
