I hope not on your dime!

I always liked when the Snap On truck would roll in, it's kind of like the ice cream truck

My neigbor at the old house was a MAC TOOl saleman before he retired. He keep his truck at the house and gave me a key for it. Said go ahead and ues anything you want just be sure to clean it up before you put it back. God I miss that truck(guy).

Yep I see the damage... but I'm sure that bow tie can be removed without too much more damage.


Ouch though, that sucks. Introduce your customer to your snap-on guy and watch your customer turn white.

Re:Totaled out my toolbox 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
Now that would have upset me ! Being a retired machine repairman for Rockwell Int.

On the lighter side, I had a wreck with a crock of SourKrout. I was working on my old electric HD golf cart. Had a problem with the relays. I was using a jumper wire to test the relays and the darn thing took off, crashed into an 10 gallon crock full of four week batch of home made SourKrout. Can you say, get the canning jars ready? The juice on the floor sure did clean the concrete.

Re:Totaled out my toolbox 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
I worked for a small babbit foundry for eight years,One time at thanksgiving it got broken in to and the a-holes stole all of the Machinist tool boxes mine included, about 6,000$ worth of micrometers and such just from me alone,the owner said he would take care of us when the insurance paid off, all I got was a check for 600.dollars-told him it wouldn't even cover the cost of a set of 0 to 12" Starrett mic's. he said sorry,due to deprecation they would not pay out that much. needless to say I didn't work there very much longer......and they are not in business anymore,do to him f-king everybody at that time.
The demand for the bearings is still out there,hydro-electric power plants,rock quaries,mines,etc.
That company could make 120,000$ a week with only 8 employees, but that but head would blow all of the money, and leave us on a Chinese sliding rule pay scale. the more hours we worked the lower our hourly wage would go.
