    Probably the best suggestion so far. Avoids you becoming the target of management or your co-workers.

      Maybe I'm the only one that sees the humour in this?

      Should we start a thread titled "O.T. How to deal with difficult people who respond to the thread titled" "O.T. How to deal with difficult people at work"
      And before anybody gets all pissy, I'm making a joke so lighten up.

      I'm startin to think we need Airsmith back for some comedy relief.

          I think it should not be allowed to write at the end of a post that what you wrote was a joke. It is much better to read the flames! Those that take all this stuff to heart and get insulted should say so, so we can hammer them some more!!!

          I'll drink to that!!!

              absolutely, and millman. how much can you learn about machining without some good comic relief? The one who i'm glad is gone TMT, he's was just nails on the blackboard tediously annoying. But the Airsmith threads? Good times.

              these frequent gwilson dust ups are also good....always leads to half a dozen 'look what i did' threads and he makes some nice stuff

                Please post your look what I did posts. Pictures are fun,and if you never post them,no one gets to see anything interesting,do they? Or,do you just prefer to sit around and blather about whatever?

                    McGyver,
                    Oh yeah I totally agree about Georges work, His worst would no doubt be far better than mine ever will be. And George I know your not 100% health wise.

                    I've spent my whole working life with large groups of people who are bored with their jobs and litterlly hunt for a target to ride or make a joke. Nothing and no one is safe from them. It's either give back better than you got or move on to another day.

                        a redundant post.

                          What do you mean? What if my worst WASN'T pretty bad? (Not saying it isn't bad) Everyone makes foul ups.

                          By the way,concern yourself with your own posts.

                            To the O.P.:

                            You're concerned mostly about your health, so wear a dust mask of some sort while the grinder is being operated by the idiot. Doing anything stupid like contacting the OSHA people may not get you fired, but you'll pay for it many times over, believe me.

                            When/if the boss asks about the mask, I'd be nonchalant about it, and also point out the potential damage to the other machines, as someone else suggested. Then, LET IT GO, don't whine and snivel.

                              I hope to God you never make an error. You would never forgive yourself. You might kill yourself for forgetting to put up a smiley face.
                              Pretty yes

                              Vicious not yet

                              I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure , but I'm not a complete idiot - some bits are still missing

                                Two simple solutiions. One, grind with coolant, or, Two, put the vacuum outside the shop and wired up to the grinder. Dust and noise gone. Of course you need a collecter hose to the grinder. Peter
                                The difficult done right away. the impossible takes a little time.
