How the hell is everybody?!

Postby Oscar » Sun Sep 03, 2017 1:56 pm

Every day I grow farther and farther from the welding forums as my work picks up more and more every day. I have a few projects on the back burner, but still have yet to get to them. Wish I had more time, but oh well, you can't have both a-lot-of-free-time and steady-income, LOL.

Doing well, here. Harvey was little more than an annoyance in SE LA.

"Busy" is a good problem to have.

Wife and I were at the track. She low sided right in front of me. I did all I could not to run her over. I missed her but nailed her bike which sent me skyward. Collar bone broke in two places. The surgeon said it was the worst he's ever seen. It took a large plate, ten screws, and two and a half hours to fix it.

Best of luck on that! Sounds like hell

Got back from 3 months in the farm last week and started on tech school classes. Intro, safety, and a little blueprint reading. I didn't know you could fit so much information on one line. Tuesday I start my last year of high school and hopefully will start burning some rod here soon.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

I hope your wife is ok, and that you're able to get past this. i have a plate in my left arm and like yours the x-ray is pretty vivid, you can see the threads on the screws. When he explained the procedure the surgeon used all kinds of woodworking terms.

Wife is fine, thanks for asking. I have friends working on patching two bikes up so she can ride at the season ending pig roast. The plan is for me to take a parade lap as well.

Good you both are ok.
But, did you ask for left-over titanium parts to practise welding on ? :mrgreen:
