My family must just be hard on thumbs. Nothing near what baumbaum did to his, but the other day I ripped the meat loose on the right side of this thumbnail, then today I smacked the same thumb with a hammer.[/olcowhand]

Ho my word! Oh my word! TWICE! You want some of my meds?

God no's I would pass out!

On that subject does anyone have an idea how or what I can use to protect my thumb while running my crane tomorrow? Went to pharmacy and they had nothing big enough to go over bandage.

Daniel this is just a thought. Having cords laying on the floor of the shop is a pain to deal with. Have you thought about installing some hanging receptacles from the ceiling. Maybe one over the welding bench, work bench and areas where you will be working on equipment. They really come in handy and eliminate a lot of clutter on the floor.

We use those retractable at our church where we set up our food serving tables for dinners. That way we can set up crock pots or warmer trays then no cords and they retract in ceiling, those are nice. I need one for my air hose too.

Yesterday my Nolin RECC (electric company) guy came by.  At my grandson's ball game Thursday evening, his other Grampa was there, and Keith works at Nolin.  I asked if they had any Triplex wire like I need for the new shop's power line and let me know later.  He got on the phone right then & called this guy.  The guy he called is the one who spent half a day helping me get my power pole & line back up last year when the sawdust semi took it all down.  Anyway, he dropped off more than enough Triplex, eye bolts for poles, insulators, brackets/etc.  We had intended to go underground, but with no semi's coming in , we're going overhead.  We already have all kinds of retired poles, some almost brand new.  Saved me some $'s!  These guys are awesome people!
