I laid on my back under the frame and drilled 6....1/2" holes in some very hard steel and , survived without injuring myself.

Now the other day that was another story, twisted thumb when drill locked up and did it to wrist also.

Started the day by hitting bedpost with left toes, spinning around and flying into the closet doors and then onto bathroom door, finishing off with shoulder into hardwood floor and head knocking floor too.

Yelled many many bad words and woke wife up, got the STINK EYE at 7 AM.

I don't tell about those days anymore. My wife has threatened to make me wear a camera so she can post my misfortunes.   ;D

Mike, I know all too well how those days go :)   I tried getting back to work on the Elcamino's lower back glass channel. Altering bought part with shrinker/strecher, but have to change vise mount each time. Decided to mount both on a streel sawhorse. Only needed to drill four 3/8" holes.  Drill cord went bad, tore apart and installed new cord. That just about done the hands in, but noooo.... I had to drill the holes yet. All good till the last one and .....yep got the 'ol lock up. Done me in for a week >:(
 
I crash all the time but usually no one around to laugh, just the cat these days. Harvey just looks at me like i'm an idiot. ;D

Don't do the volume of work you do...but I mounted angle iron on the bottom of the tools so they can be held in a vise.  I have a couple of roll around vise stands that can be taken to the car when needed.

Ed, you need to put that in the past tense  ;D I haven't done any volume of work in over 7yrs now >:(

I had three of those stands just like yours, 1 for RR anvil upright, 1 for RR anvil mounted on its side and 1 with a bench grinder. Those worked very well and were cheap. I could get an old truck wheel anywhere, drill stem pipe and the RR track plate ties (and track cut offs)to weld on top for mounting stuff free.

They became too hard for me to roll around any more so I gave them away about 3yrs ago. All I have left is 1 of 2 tractor axel tubes that I have my wire brush motor on. I can roll it, just can't pick it up any more.

Very nice  8).
What color blue is that ?
Mine is supposed to be slate blue. I wanna go near original but custom.


Getting tired of the really LOUD horn, so I ordered a "runtz" 12v to 6v reducer and have a better mount for it also to swap.

12-6v reducer "Runtz" ....horn fail. 
Made a funky noise almost like something is powering up but it wasn't the horn.
Wired it up like it said.
Thinking it was a ground failure I put serated washers on and still nothing.  :(
