    Well at some level or another were all presumeably (sp?) mechanics here, or at least think of ourselves as moderately handy soooo, what's ur funniest mishap or misadventure resulting from turning a wrench (my friends and I have this convo when I was gone @ crafstmanship tech training)

    I can recal a certain time when a new airmen was sent to have his steel toed boots Xrayed for cracks, accidently pressurizing a 20 gal reservior to 1400 psi when It's only rated for 1psi sticks out in my mind too....

    And then there was the time one of my friends tipped over a B5 stand while torquing a glandnut an an Aircraft (B5 stands are like big tripod scafoldins on lockwheels that go 25+ft in the air.

    What have you fucked up lately?

    hmmmm, prolly the time i changed the driver side axle on my girl's car one day, and then brought the car into my garage the next day and tried to replace the exact same axle again- i got the entire thing out before i realized the ends were different and then had to stare at them for another 10 minutes to figure out exactly what i had just done-

    I learned the hard way that renting a spring compressor is a wise investment. I ended up with three knuckles busted open.

    When I was younger.........

    A few of us had go carts. My brother had one, and of course all the neighbor kids would wanna hang out and ride once in a while. There was one neighbor kid(Robert) that was a year older than me, but had the brains of someone half our age. The go cart stopped running one afternoon. So a few of us were gathered trying to find the problem.

    My brother says "Hey robert, hold on to this wire and tell me if it has spark."

    Robert Replies "Ok."

    Robert twitched with every revolution of that Briggs engine, and my brother had given it his best yank. This may sound mean, but I'll never forget that day.

    As Robert exclaims "IT"S GOT SPARK!!!!!", he was :owned:
    :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

    changing oil, and not realizing the O-ring from the old filter was still on the block, filter not sealing, and shooting oil everywhere when i started it up, lost about a quart in 30 seconds.....

    taking a corner too hard in the rain, swerving off the road and slamming the guardrail....

    trying to loosen bolts on my front crossmember, while pulling as hard as i can toward me, then the bolt finally letting loose and the wrench smaking me in the face...

    trying to loosen a bolt on my brakes and not realizing i was tightening it, then finally realizing i was tightening after wailing on the wrench as hard as i could with a hammer (needless to say i completely fucked up that socket wrench).....

    the list goes on....

    TurboMirage or Celerity should tell this... but just watching the two them one afternoon at Bristol auotx checking out Celerity's car. I think that it started with checking out his exhaust fumes? Well they had the hood open, Chris noticed some loose screw on the water pump... :eek: So that got tightened up in a hurry. Then they finished up with Chris moving the hatch forward onto a toolcase, being told about it, so moving backwards and onto Steve's foot. Pure comedy gold. Clayton and I were watching safely from the hill. :lol:

    I don't wrench enough on my cars yet. Close calls would be changing a flat with my hydraulic jack, but with the tire flat, the car sits just a little too low... so this guy comes by and lifts up my car up so that I can scoot it underneath. It was dark, so I had to use my fingers to feel for the support ridge. Came close to losing some fingers on that one.

    On the way home from getting getting a replacement hood for my Si, I got onto the highway and noticed my little socket wrench (my only Snapon tool!) resting on the righthand side of my windshield. Needless to say, I pulled over right away to retrieve it. Pheww!
