I should. There is a Sat. morning market like 50ft from my door, I bet I could get some good stuff there.

Pulled the blown motor last night in 2 hours and dropped one of the spare long blocks at the machine shop. If it's ready withing 1-1.5 weeks there's chance we might make it to our 24h race at the end of the month.

No stress

This is like saying "well, latex condoms aren't the most enjoyable way to experience intercourse, but sometimes the only woman available is a one-legged 350lb prostitute with a severe yeast infection, and you still need sex."

No. Just no.

One of my employees got hurt on the job today. First time that's ever happened under my watch, and it honestly kind of shook me.

I had three guys loading a 550lb piece of equipment (a camera pedestal on a pallet) into the building through the freight elevator. The dolly got hung up on the gap between the elevator and the floor, and the guys were rocking it to free it. One of 'em was in the way when it broke loose and came barreling forward. He started shouting "stop it, stop it!" but you can't stop 600+ lbs of equipment on a dime.

It's not life-threatening, but his foot is probably broken.

I really feel like hell about this...



EDIT: This is the device that we were transporting. It just came back in from a rebuild:

It's probably unavoidable that you feel bad about it. The pain will go away when he serves you with a lawsuit.

But seriously, this is the opportunity to use company time and resources to create a well-produced safety video in classic Joe Perez fashion. You could even include a slow-motion dramatization of what might occur using the actual characters from the event. Or even better, have the hair and makeup people help them dress up as each other for the video so each one is playing the part of a co-worker in the recreation. If OSHA/lawyers get involved you can demonstrate the measures implemented to prevent a future occurrence.

What's the story behind the little black dot crawling back & forth along the bottom of the tv screen on ABC? Joe? It is too annoying to watch so I am missing modern family, etc.

you own a foreman grill. it is the opposite of good. all the delicious and nutritious fats run out and leave you with dry, half-raw chicken.

My LC-1 blinked code 6 on two separate occasions in one day.
Cycled the key, and the code went away both times.

Would you say the sensor is toast?

A bad sensor usually goes at the extremes. What i mean by that is if your afr will either read 9.1 or 21.7 or very close to the extremes (usually on the lean side).

I've never had mine pop a code either when it was bad. The only time i've had a code pop up was when i was pulling power from the head unit. After I ran a dedicated wire directly to the controller from the battery i've been code free.

Mine was just fine for a couple years.
Then I just got this code 6 twice in one day.
Obviously, when the code is blinking the screen says 8.3 AFR.

I use it for a sandwich press lol. Nothing I put in there oozes any fluids....except for the occasional grilled cheese that has a piece of cheese sticking out that makes contact with the cooking surface. There is no intention of making food 'healthy' with that thing lol

Breville used to make a reasonable-priced sandwich press with flat plates and an articulating hinge which allowed the plates to remain parallel at all sandwich thicknesses.

Now they do not.

I has a sad.
