It sure gets interesting
« on: February 09, 2016, 03:03:45 AM »
Had a customer come by last night to pick up some 16' lumber on a 10' trailer. He said he had been using the trailer for years for feeding his horses. He just puts a round bale on the trailer and pulls it out in the pasture. Well after years of that use it might have rusted the tongue out a little.

 

 

It's a good thing that I have a welder in the shop.  ;D

And a good sense of humor to go with it ???
Saw millers are just carpenters with bigger bits of wood

I had a guy show up with a trailer like that to pick up my 8500 pound forklift that I sold on Craigslist. I told him he was nuts, but he insisted. He had 2 or 3 layers of (dry rotted) 2" x 10" in the floor to "Beef it up". Since he'd already paid cash, I had him sign a waiver and pointed him to a suitable loading ramp he could drive on from. I wandered back out when I heard the crash of the steer axle going through the deck. I suggested he really should just hire a machinery mover and gave him the number to call.

It's happened before,  laughing is about the only response followed by some scabbing and welding,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

That sounds like something I would try, on the off chance that I might get away with it and save a dime.  Usually ends up costing a dollar though. :-\

Luckily, it didn't break out on the road.  And I'm sure the customer got a free welding job.
