    Today I was working at home in my shop. About 2:30 I was feeling like I got a lot done. SO, I went in the house to check on my emails and the HAMB. I know I was only in the house about 9 seconds, it doesn't take long to wade through 4-7 pages on the HAMB, right? On the way back I stopped by the side of the shop to take a wizz. About half way through I could smell rubber burning and see smoke coming out from under the door. Pinched it off and ran. The bandsaw I had started when I went in the house had jammed, and the belt was about to burst into flames!!! The HAMB almost burned down my shop.

    I was being paid, and felt guilty, had to get something done.

    just make sure you are defending yourself.
     
  6. .... and you pinched it off? Hope you saved it on ice in a baggie. I heard they can reattach it.

    I think he is sueing the hamb for causing extrem addiction that almost caused him to lose his business.

    You know, a man can only take so much. I would at least, as part of the restitution, have Ryan post warnings on this site. It's really getting out of control!

    I like the idea of Ryan posting warnings. I think that could be helpful.

    Maybe with some cautionary pics attached to them.....

    pics of a guy with pee all over the front of his pants trying to put out a bandsaw belt fire. :D

    WARNING: The HAMB contains contents which are known to the state of California to be addictive.

    Funny story NoboD. :D

    Did you finish putting out the fire by peeing on it?

Then again, the moniter could match the keyboard that has been so screwed up from all the druel from looking at the cool cars on the HAMB....Guess the law suit is a lost cause. :D Gene

    So you felt guilty, felt like you should be working, so you started the bandsaw and said, "You keep working, I'll be back shortly". And it did keep working a while but after you were gone so long the bandsaw said, "Fuck it! I'm the only one working here" so it stopped.

    I think that's what you're saying, or something like that. Have I got it straight or am I just being stupid?

    Did it get much done while you were away?

    If you hadn't stopped to pee you would have had somnething to put out the fire with. You really should stop the bandsaw when you're changing blades,too.:)

    Read this the other day-been runnin' the SHIT outta my band saw, hopin' it does this...Never seen a smokin' band saw. Was that a factory option, or aftermarket conversion, like the thingy on the TV that truned my Vacuum cleaner into a leaf blower?

    Gotta get me one a those...

    Now let me see if I got this straight. He was trying to change the bandsaw blade while it was running he was also pissing and tried to have a smoke at the same time. I think that is taking multi tasking a little too far.

    I wouldn't worry too much. We could sue you for negligence and stupidity but I doubt that it would amount to much. The modern courts always side with the "it's not my fault" ignorant masses. You probably don't need a lawyer.

    This will probably end in arbitration.
