Old time safety! I got prints to give away.
Also, new merch. https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/1028490676/take-heed-antique-warning-label
As always if you got no money or just prefer free-ninety-nine drop me a line and I'll send out a bunch. TownPumpCNC @hotmail.com

Gentlemen's, welcome back to the shop, make cool and put it on twitter nets. This here is cool. We don't have nearly enough chuckles to share of late in the shop, especially in this day of safety, ism and nanny statism and abdicating all your personal accountability. Occasionally you come across a piece of gear: what's so old, it's grown its own soul and it would gladly rip your arm clean orf if, given the chance, graham from the diode press, made these lino cuts for us and did some printing i'll be giving these away.

Take heed apparatus predate safety in the style of a brass tag. I'm going to make some stickers for these they'll be available for your consideration over on the etsy as well. The tap and die charts are gon na, be uh magnets and fellas been asking me for years or a magnetic tap and die chart some places. You're working, i don't like you putting tap and die charge, especially cheeky ones like this on the bosses.

Machines got the swedish our patron saint, the swedish nut with our motto: if it ain't broke, try harder, they're, also better than the usual top and die charts, because you got the decimal equivalent right here on the side, you don't need to flop the thing over. You see, you actually need two of these kind stuck with magnets, because uh you got ta, pull the magnet off and flip it over to find out what the decimal is is stupid stupid. So in this case you get a twofer, you don't got ta flip it over and it comes with its own magnet huh get a gratuitous shot of my former mistress. The old bridgeport we'll get her uh chooching again, but you can trust to your luck or trust.

Your legal tender, if and you want some of these - i will uh gladly give you some away or if you prefer, to make sure you get some go over on into the etsy there and you can purchase these they're expensive or as frigg, because you're worth it.

    Reminds me of woodwork class in grade 7 , [ 57 years ago ] . The teacher was explaining the dangers of the bandsaw , as he turned it on . He pointed at the running blade , and there was a loud " thunk " , as he split the end of his pointing finger . We all laughed like it was for our entertainment . He spent the rest of the afternoon , strapping the whole class .

    A friend of mine just turned me on to someone using screen grabs of your vijeos to sell what appears to be knock-offs of your "safety" stickers on the Facespace. I'd post the link, but don't want to drive traffic to their website. However, they caption the post as "Put these warnings in dangerous and conspicuous places. Be safe!"

    Half of the images include the long-suffering (mostly) green self-healing mat.

    I've always thought trip hammers or power hammers should have signs on them that say. "This thing can kill you, if it doesn't kill you it will make you wish it had."

    I have long believed that machines have two goals in mind,,

    1st is to do the job it was designed to do,,

    2nd is to injure or kill the human that made them do it,,

    High key wish for velcro patches of some of these, because "Warning: not to be operated by fuckwits." would absolutely go on my medical bag.

    I can't be the only person who's sick and tired of being told to "be safe" and whatnot, right? If you need to be told that, you're probably gonna get hurt no matter what. Like, I know people mean well and companies don't want injured workers etc, but isn't keeping yourself safe a built in instinct? Is it even possible to teach someone to be more safe? I guess there's situation specific things you might not realize on your own. I don't know. I just feel like if one more person tells me to "stay safe" I'm gonna vomit on them.

    The people who know this chit, grew up, playing with mercury, wearing asbestoes pajamas, driving Big Wheels while chasing DDT spray trucks, as lawn darks flew overhead. Danger? WTF is that?

    Need a small size version, Ave to stick to the dash of my ‘52 Ferguson. That ol girl’s got so many ways to kill ya hidden in her skirts I sweat the entire time she’s runnin. Not really sure what scares me the most….the sketchy fuel system, suspect brakes, forty year-old tires, leaky calcium-eaten wheels, tall center of gravity, slack steering, home gamer hitch welds, long departed neutral start safety, creaky hydraulics or angry power take off (remember PTO = Pieces Torn Off…). Love her like family tho!

    I have a 1936 13" band saw for which the "pre-safety" sticker will be perfect! They don't make 'em any more like they did that one. My father bought it when it was about 30 years old and I've had it now for almost 40 years. Still chooches mightily. I have a nice half-inch scar on the middle finger of my left hand from very nearly taking the end of it off when a work piece I was shaving a thin piece from slipped out of the blade about 50 years ago (dear God that hurt). Bound it up tightly with band-aids to avoid telling my father about it.

    Hey AvE, hope you're staying safe from all the fires in your neck of the woods. So far, the island has been OK, but Lytton….Yikes! 🔥
