Why doesn't Someone here come up with an inoculation for stupidity?
Someone already did. They come in various calibres, .22, .357, .45 and even 9mm for metric stupidity.

John (blogwitch) , your workshop looks very impressive. I like the air ratchet set-up.

My shop at this time is like a bombsite, not like it is shown on those piccies. I have just built an external storage shed to allow me to get into the main shop a lot easier.
Just waiting for a couple of friends to come over to help sort it out and get rid of anything that I won't be using or stuff that needs long term storage (new shed), I have lost count of the number of engine and tooling casting sets I have.

If you don't try it, you will never know if you can do it!!

During my apprenticeship:
Workshop. Huuuge pillar drill.
2 levers, 9 speeds.
Big sign: Change speed only at standstill.
Moron fumbles about levers, starts drill.
Gears weren´t engaged properly, so there was a loud noise.
Instead of switching the machine off, waiting for it to stop and then push the lever back, he grabbed the lever and pushed it while the motor was running at full speed.
There was a loud bang.
The shock could be felt through the floor......

If brute force doesn´t work, you´re just not using enough of it!
