  • Chickens& Weddings?

    Not wanting to be a wet blanket here, but there are plenty of places to read about chickens and weddings. Do they belong here? I read both posts and don't find the machining content that I hoped for. Thanks, Bob Fisher.

    My fiance' and I were thinking of having our wedding in a country / farm setting, with chickens.

            The Compleat Machinist

            Diversity of thought - one dimensional websites get boring after a while. Shows that our members here have multifaceted lives that revolve around machining but touch other areas.

            Why wade through the machining drivel to get to the on-topic subject matter on wedding and chicken websites when you can get it all here?

                Here, a quote from another thread relevant to both machining and weddings. Seems appropriate here to save the thread.

                Well today, I finally managed to remember to bring the camera to work,
                just finished these spikes up, they fit into the end of some aluminium tube,
                which is then screwed into the ground over which a flag pole sits.

                25 of them in total (not all pictured).

                Bit of a rush as they are being taken up to london by the customer for flags
                at a certain wedding thats coming up.

                They are 1 inch aluminium bar, the "thread" is 20mm (approx) wide, and on a 28mm
                pitch takes 7 minutes to make each one, not too bad for a 20 odd year old cnc.

                      Tools used.

                      Tools used to produce the chicken shack..

                      Scotchman 35 ton ironworker to shear angle iron,
                      Makita 4" grinder to preclean areas to weld,
                      Hobart Stickmate welder utilizing 3/32nd 7018 Low hydrogen rods.
                      25 foot Lufkin tape measure
                      Pencil and paper to layout design using materiels at hand.

                      I am sure most the WORKING TOOLS you Home shop machinist do not have, but alas most here can explain in detail from written information available for use of them on Wikipedia whereas you can all argue the finer points of.

                      By the way, my lil garden now means several thousand dollars in food related income bettering the lives of myself and my wife..
                      Excuse me, I farted.

                        I could post pictures of what I did at work today,but inventory and paperwork are pretty f---ing boring as subjects go.
                        I just need one more tool,just one!

                          I think most of us like the variety here, you might like the atmosphere better over on PM, or if a post here does not meet your expectations, just skip it. That is what I do.

                            Sir John , have you received your invitation ?
                            Or are you just going to watch the wedding on the news like the rest of us commoners.

                              No TV for me that day.

                              I have managed to work a flanker and will be going to install a couple of CNC milling machines into a place whilst it's shut down for the day.

                              Hint, do it my way, not how their Elf and Pastry dipshïts insist it's done which takes 3 times as long and isn't even safe.
