I don’t always cross the threads, but when I do I run it all the in with an impact!
Funny story, guy was dicking around with his 1/2 impact, ran a 5/8 NF nut on to his index finger, all the way to his hand. Bleeding like a stuck hog, he never said a word, just looked at it then reversed the impact, an ran it off.

That’s one way to clear out a deep well socket.

Yep. Thats a bear. Saw it catch on a knuckle once and took dudes finger at the 2nd.

Also saw a guy, 2 weeks married, catch his wedding ring on a screw in step for a tree stand when hopping down from the 2nd to last step. Was inside his glove.
Took off at the 2nd knuckle. Pulled a tendon from up in the middle of his hand.
It was all stuck in his glove.....

Hand surgeon completed the amputation. His friends brought in the glove and we disposed of it. I had the fortune to fish out the finger and retrieve the ring..... 😊

A buddy was working on his sink, and asked “what was that saying again for which way it’s supposed to turn?”

My response:

It’s just the same in plumbing as it is with Pussy.

Righty - Tighty, Leftie - Loosie.
Be sure and tell him the three main rules for being a plumber:

1. Shit flows downhill.
2. Don't lick your fingers.
3. Payday is on Friday.

Ugh...just got through dealing with this. My truck is still under warranty so I take it to the dealer for everything so they can’t try and weasel out of a warranty issue and blame it on someone else. Took it on Tuesday for an oil change and a new set of tires (pre-ordered). 2-hour job, tops. Also had a minor recall to do, but that meant they couldn’t finish in one afternoon, so they sent me home in a paid rental, and promised it to be ready the following morning. Mid-day the following day they call and say they have discovered two stripped lug nuts and one stripped lug stud. They acknowledge that they had to have done it because I haven’t let anyone but them rotate the tires. But, they don’t have them in stock, will order them, and it will take another day. Sigh...ok. Then the next day I get another call and I can tell it isn’t good. So now they got the stripped lug stud and lug nuts replaced, but today they found ANOTHER one and well, “we don’t have any in stock and have to order some more and it will be another day. Also, you need new brakes, would you like us to take care of that for you?” You’re kidding, right?

I’m picturing a gorilla with a 1 in-drive impact, hooked to a 200 psi compressor with no regulator and no torque adjustment, cross-threading every nut and grinding them in right down to the hub.

Similar situation. Bought a certified used Dodge from the Dodge dealer ...2017 with around 35k miles on it. Went to do the first oil change since I'd had it and found the drain bolt totally mangled and torqued in some insane amount.

Took a bolt extractor and my 18" breaker bar to get it out. Thankfully the threads were ok so I didn't need to drop the pan but I was still pissed. I assume the dealer did this since their "certified " used car was supposed to have all fluids changed etc.

What the fuck is wrong with some people? I grew up in a garage, mechanic dad shity mom. I literally broke my gums chewing on snap on wrench’s. Yet I never drove a nut on my finger let alone thought about it.
Just wait until you see a FNG trying to toe nail a 1/4" steel plate to a concrete wall with a green 22lr load. I did not see it happen but seen/felt the after effects 1 second later as the nail went threw my pants leg an hit a bud in the knee. That "Construction Company was escorted" out of the shop quickly,...
It was not called Tampon Fla for no reason back then. Another smart ass sprayed a 12" block wall with a full can of Either to "Kill a huge nest of wasps. The Either did not work as he wanted it to so he tossed a burning rag at it, the roof held but 1/2 of the 24' wall had to be rebuilt an it was 3 days before some got out of the hospital.
There are people out there that are weapons grade stupid,...

If there was ever a justification for silicone rubber wedding bands, that's it. With all the stuff I do at home on the lathe, or at work, climbing ladder wells or stringing antenna elements, I switched over to the rubber wedding bands years ago. I kind of like my fingers not "sleeved" from a misstep or mishap....

Or just get your wedding band tattooed on (Assuming no religious objection to getting a tattoo).

Yeah, that's an option. My previous line of work frowned upon tattoo's though, so not an option for me.

My wife and I sold our wedding rings, 35 years ago, to raise money to adopt our youngest son. I guess we never felt the need to replace them. We celebrated our 50th, this year, so I guess it didn't matter. I never wore mine anyways because I have always worked around machinery.

I wore one when we first got married, I was shoeing a colt and he jerked his foot back right after I had finished putting the nails in. A nail went in between my finger and that new ring and like to have ripped my finger off, I went 20 years without one until the silicone rings came out.

I don’t wear one anymore. Partly because my finger went from a size 7 to almost a 10 after the break. Just can’t make myself wear one again. Got it hung up in a guys jacket breaking up a fight at work.

I’m 5’7, weigh about 180 and the tallest guy in my family. Doesn’t make sense to me because my moms side had all 6’3” plus guys.
