  • OT: use a lathe to protect yourself from snakes

    While browsing the local adds for machine tools, I came across this hilarious add. Needless to say, I took full advantage of the opportunity and replied:

      What other machine tools do you think he'll advise us for the purpose of snake protection, for the low consultational fee of 110$/hour ?

        How about a big belt sander. I bet those snakes could keep up for awhile, but eventualy they would wear out!

              I couldn't figure that one out till I read the other posts. This is a prime example of the importance of spelling decently enough to make yourself understood.

                      Glad to see you know how to spell correctly, how about teaching the rest of the US.

                        Another one of those Dual Purpose words...

                        There are engine Lathes and Meal working Lathes(Lay-ths) which we have all played with, and then there is Metal Lathe(L short A- hard TH) which is nailed to walls to hold plaster.


                        Kind of like speaking about a tired vehicle - is it tired as having tires, or just worn out?
