  • Why???

    If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed?

    I would think the talented people that make patterns for us could be designed and that mail carriers could be delivered.

      Very true. The English language is amazing isn't it. We also ride on parkways and park in driveways as the late George Carlin cogently observed.

        Why isn't Buick pronounced like quick?

              That's easy . . . . if it was pronounced like quick then when someone wanted one you'd think they talked like Elmer Fudd and send them to the 'bwick' store!

                  When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                      I'll go back and try a light emboss, my main intent here was to stand at the other side of the room and watch the pressure gauge from a distance, and see if it would go full force without leaks, so pressing through a 2/4 wasn't really the plan. A pin size leak at 10,000 psi is a very very dangerous...

                      Glad you got repaired and I am intrigued by the embossing idea.

                      The auto darkening helmet is a must have in my opinion, especially for the home hobby welders. if you are a pro and do it all the time maybe not.
