Default What did you do at work today?

What did you do at work today?

I welded these 1" thick plates together (15 total for a combined weight of 2,000+ lbs.). What are they for? I thought you'd never ask! A customer wants to add 2,000 lbs. to the rear of their forklift to stop it from tipping. We told them they need a bigger forklift, they said no we need more weight. The 4 pieces with the "tongue" will go into the current counterweight and the pin will go through and hold all these plates on! Yes, it was their idea not mine I just do what I am told. Do I think it's safe, no, but what do I know???

Our son would love to see that dozer up close, who am I kidding I would too! Some friends are clearing a lot across from our house and we took our son over yesterday to watch. He had to wear his hard hat. How about that Marmon truck, ever seen one? That's the only one I've ever seen around here.

Drove 183 miles around Mid-Michigan thru rainy weather delivering packages to my customers. Nothing special or much different than any other weekday.

Drove 2.5hrs to a jobsite, did my consulting engineering thing for a cpl hours, turned around & came home. Got in my 8hrs & was still off mid-afternoon. That's so rare for me.
