    My side gig....thanks for the help!!

    A few months back I had requested some help for bending handles. Anyways, I made this multi purpose battering ram/SWAT type tool for a friend's new company. Anyways, it's called the jersey boot and I have made the first 100. It's been a good learning experience and money maker too. Dave http://youtube.com/watch?v=wmSnRPHsgtM

    Turbo,

    Since you have made 100 already, was wondering how you made the jig, if you used one.

    Also was there much bending or forming involved?

    Thanks,

    Admin.......had I been pm'd I would have responded so. It was a public statement and I responded as such.

    That is not an explanation........if you're willing to make a statement and it had importance to you at the time, then I think you would want it to be understood. If not, do I and others take your posts as rambling with no merit?

    I see you're mortified KB...

    I'm not trying to intimidate or throw my authori-tie (South Park reference) around, just want to keep the place peaceful and clean.

    Dave posted a decent and unique project that was well made, and you just couldn't keep your fingers off the keyboard and leave him alone, could you?

    Agree to Disagree

    I can't believe this thread has gone this far with so many useless statements,
    attacts on one another, negativity, perhaps jealousy, disrespect, and just plain stupidity.

    This is what I've gotten from this thread:
    Someone wanted to show a project they had a connection with, some like it, some don't, blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah....and now here we are. Oh yeah, I have lost more respect for certain members. Some here are
    just sh!t disturbers. They look for something to attact, create an arguement, nurture that arguement, and when they run out of brains, they turn to vulgarity.

    A few weeks ago I had mentioned to my wife how well the forum was going.
    Hardly any bickering. Then it dawned on me how many threads and posts were actually about welding related topics which I had a few questions and was looking for answers. Others had threads on projects etc. The forum was busy with welding stuff, not bs. I almost left a post saying how nice it was.
    Good thing I didn't. It seems to me when we are not keeping the welding interests up, the non welding related threads get started and the ones who hide under rocks come out to feed. I'm not pointing fingers.......they know who they are, and if they don't, they're dumber than I thought.
    Monte, this was a nice encapsulation of everything I was thinking as I've been watching this thread since late last week. I let it go because last I saw it, people weren't out and out attacking each other, I was just seeing people debating for the most part. This project brought up some touchy political/ethical issues among members, and I can't fault anyone for debating based on that. Everyone has a right to their opinion, and as long as they present their side in a logical, constructive way, I think that's ok. It was partially a debate on "the ethics of welding", which I thought was an interesting thing to discuss. Now that we're 10 pages in, I think those that don't agree with the project in principle have said their peace, and those that disagree with them have said their peace, and now we should drop it and move on. Agree to disagree. What we are debating here goes down to people's basic value system and I don't think there is much a person could say or do to convince them otherwise.

    However, I'm tired of the people who come on here just to stir the pot, (or as Monte says "come out from under their rocks" to fuel the fire), and I agree, I'm sure they know who they are and I'm sure most who have been around awhile know who they are too. This isn't about group hugs, this isn't about "running to HR", this is about CIVILITY. This isn't a place to hold a virtual bar room brawl, and if you don't like it, well, I think you should find another forum to slug it out on. If you don't like not swearing, if you don't like the fact that you get chastised when you say something attacking, like "all he does is make kitty beds and bandsaws..." Then you should go to a place where the Terms of Use say that's just fine, or you could start your own forum (cough) Slagpit (cough) and pick on each other over there. It's not that you guys DON'T talk welding, you do, and give some good info. That we'll miss, but if you continue to come in here like a bunch of bandits to pillage the village, well, we'll have to run ya out of town.
