  • Road Rash

    Bought a treadmill for my wife for christmas and put it together in the basement. Her 15 yr old son did some rearanging in the basement and moved the treadmill so the wall is behind it rather than in front or beside. He cranked up the speed pretty high and couldn't keep up, but with the wall behind him, he couldn't just fall off the back, so he bounced off the wall back onto the treadmill, put a scratch on his head off the side of the treadmill and picked up some nice road rash on his arm. I know it's wrong, but it was the funniest **** thing ever !!!

    Good Chrimbo pressie, Jeff! Put a pad of sandpaper above the treadmill and you'd have a variation on a drum sander.

        I hope..

        she wanted the treadmill..
        sure would hate to hear that she hit you over the head with it...

        before the wife and I was married I got her a vacuum cleaner for Christmas because she kept borrowing mine..I guess that's the wrong thing to give a girlfriend because I still hear about it to this day!

              As someone who has actually fallen off a tread mill - I closed my eyes for a couple of seconds and then found myself on the floor - I think it's funny too.

              When it happened to me I was laughing just as hard as you were Jeff!

                Celtic knot-shamrock cross
                by Ennobee
                My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

                Hi Jim.
                glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

                Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

                by jim_mex
                I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
