I completely agree with your views on this nonsense but we are in a shrinking minority, I saw a women last week running a string line trimmer in her yard and she was wearing a forestry helmet with full face shield (eye protection good idea) and earmuffs( good idea)  plus chaps such as worn when running a chainsaw Grin, Elbow length heavy duty gloves Grin Carhart type insulated coveralls( it was 95 out)  Huh  Knee high heavy duty boots PLUS had one of those green red safety vest on and EXACTLY what you just said came to my mind,,,,,  You are obviously a blooming idiot and your going to find a way to get hurt in spite of looking like a fool wearing all that garb,,,

Of course, once she finished setting the sprinkler she went back to pushing her dead beat husband's corpse through the industrial chipper that was being repossessed the next day.  ;)

This tread does remind me of my brother laughing at my respirator and googles spray painting costume.  He couldn't hear me talking to his doctor about the final solution as he chocked to death on his own bodily fluids due to advanced emphysema two months before dying.  A very tough two months.  It was almost like being water-boarded a half dozen times a day. 

Best wishes to you on your life choices,

I'm still dreaming of a Lister twin pumping my lungs full of spent vegetable oil.  Is it as hard on your health as spent diesel?

Casey, 
 I am not a cave man and am VERY susceptible to ISO.  If I drive by a body shop and get a strong whiff  I am in immediate breathing trouble. However I do paint with hardened paints.  I  run a full helmet with supplied air and full skin protection.  I am a nut about eye protection due to my father loosing an eye in an accident.  I do this by choice, not because some government nark is telling me to do so.
 AT work we are choked by regulations that slow the productive and dont protect the stupid from being stupid, they are still stupid, dont accomplish anything and find way to get hurt when they accidentally get too close to something being done.  That Woman using the trimmer is a classic example. SHe sure wasnt going to get hurt by that trimmer but I wonder if she made it through the job without suffering heat exhaustion??? Common sense, there is nothing to replace it.

"they" really don't want us to work.

day job is senior network engineer, we have a lab where we evaluate new equipment.  There is both 110 and 220 PDUs located in equipment racks, been that way for 25 years.  A couple weeks ago someone, who was escorted by a regular into the lab, plugged 110 power strip into 220 PDU, tripped lab breaker.  First time this has ever occurred, 'cause regulars know the difference.

We had to have a meet with safety regarding the incident.  Safety engineer first suggested we move all the PDUs to their own racks, and run power in NEW overhead cable trays.  They grudgingly accepted labelling voltage on the different PDUs.  I gave up trying to explain everyone working in the lab should recognize different receptacles and we should hold the person who escorted the idiot responsible   The escorting individual ended up getting rewarded for writing a good lessons learned document.  We don't hold anyone responsible for bad decisions any more.

Spending most of my life I as a one man show has insulated me from the safety gestapo. 

Good Luck.

One of my many job descriptions is a maintenance trainer. I have to try and protect the uninitiated youngsters (as well as old-timers) from injury or death when operating and maintaining dangerous machinery and electrical systems. Of course, their employers must comply with OSHA (occupational safety) regulation and numerous other agencies who are seeking and promoting various agendas. Personally, I have no particular problems with regulation that promotes the welfare and common good of the workers... most of it makes sense and is applicable to the situations that commonly occur on the job. Some of them prevent the employers from short-cutting procedures and principles of common safety and might even result in reduced job-related illness and injury.

Ultimately the results will depend on the actions and choices made by the individual. I always teach to personal responsibility for conditions or results, and that said, I don't believe you can really teach common-sense. Much of it comes from experience and applied knowledge. Some learn from their experiences... maybe others should not be playing with fire!

I am from the Cleveland, Ohio area and there are foundries left around here. ELyria Foundry is one of the larger ones who could handle that order. Also there are smaller foundries that do casting work for sculptors around here as well. That might be worth asking them

I finally got the material all cut, welding jigs made, and the wheels are tacked together. I hope to have the undercarriage and steering components completed by the weekend.

Lunnenburg castings are hideous; full of inclusions and just awful.  I have had great luck with the Tomahawk Foundry in Rice Lake Wisconsin for all of my gray iron casting for both engines and stoves.  I once had a firebox cast that had eight cores to pour it correctly.  They did the job perfectly and in just two weeks time!  The iron was super easy to machine and had no stress when it arrived.  Send parts to Tomahawk Foundry if they are large or long run, and to Blue hills castings Inc. if they are one off or very small.  Same address, different process:  2337 29th st. Rice Lake WI (I think the zip is 54868.  Speak with Allan, and the prices are quite affordable.
