I've seen an electrocuted body before. I absolutely HATE working on electrical stuff. But the wife's garage door wasn't working. I traced it to one of the safety sensors at the bottom and repaired the wiring.
Not Working
Found bad wires on the opposite side sensor and repaired it. Success.

Stupid cousins of Tom and Jerry.

Wired in a 220 volt and 110 volt outlet and still alive. Just finished sawing up 4 12" dia logs 4 feet long of Walnut. 200 pounds of pure Walnut logs each. Had to brain storm these past 2 weeks and built a resaw sled on a table with bearings on it. Had Commanders Conference this last weekend and last night dipped all the walnut board ends in melted parifin wax and stickered all 40 of them. Now to store them away for a year.
Shop is getting a work over. Here is the latest on that and the resawing and sled build.

When I was buying traps, the guy said lots of wiring has soy in it. Huh?! Then quit making them that way!

They will eat just about anything. LEAD. Aluminum, Steel. They are constantly chewing to keep their teeth from growing back into their jaws.

they can be a real pest
a mouse chewed a bunch of wires under the hood of my mothers car during the winter a couple of years back.
I spliced some of them back together, but others were chewed off so close to the connecter they had to be replaced.

How is everyone doing?
I don't find time to get on here much lately. My employer has been working me 55 hours a week. I am quite disgusted with this company. They lied to me about this job & the pay rate.
I took this job, because I was driving truck over nights Sunday - Thursday 52-53 hours a week & my family wasn't doing well with it. I wanted to go back to a Monday-Friday day job, so I could spend evenings at home with my family as my kids are now teenagers & I don't have many years left with them at a home. Right now they still want to do things with me & I want to take maximum advantage of that.

I was told that the hours were Monday through Friday 7AM-430PM, although there would be "some days" I would have to work over.
When I was offered the job (by a 3rd party recruiter) I was offered $1 less per hour, but I would receive a $1-2 per hour raise after 90 days & another (unspecified) raise at 6 months. After this there would be a pay review every 6 months.
Also I would receive a quarterly bonus of 5% (of what I made that quarter)
On day 2 of working for this company I spoke with HR & repeated the promises that were made (raises & bonuses)  & asked if this things were true. I was told "yes"
The only exception was that quarterly bonuses were really 0-5% & the percentage received was based on job performance. OK that is fair I think.
It was all a big LIE

Reality
I have worked for this company for 1 week shy of 6 months.
The hours are really 7-whenever. "Whenever" typically being somewhere between 6 & 7 PM. I have 1 or 2 days a MONTH that I get out of work before 5 PM.
I have not received any raises.
The bonus % I would get is determined by my supervisor. My supervisor is childish & petty for a 40-something man, who is disliked by most of the employees.

He does not like me because I have told him "No, that's illegal" several times when he has asked me to violate federal or state regulations that govern truck driving or load securement. (He is utterly ignorant of said regulations). He doesn't want to hear that, he just wants things to get done.
Also their truck is a piece of junk that has some serious safety issues ,that they will not repair. I have asked multiple times to have issues corrected & each time I get "oh,we will get that in to the shop" but they never do. Under the law, the driver is responsible for the condition of the vehicle & would get any ticket issued. I could refuse to drive the truck until it is fixed proper, but that would result in me being sent home & making no money. Catch 22

On Wednesday I went into HR & spoke with the SAME PERSON. I repeated the question about the raise I was supposed to get. She tells me "I am sorry the recruiter told you those things, they are not true)  Because business is slow right now, there will be no raises or bonuses. (I work 55 hours a week,this is slow? Hate to see busy)
-truck drivers are federally regulated to a maximum of 60 hours in a 6 day period or 70 in 7days for long haul drivers, then you must be off duty for 34 hours straight

Which confirmed my suspicions that I had been lied to & really burnt my biscuits  April 2019 Thread 3169784017

If they had been honest about the hours & pay, I would never have taken this job, because it does not achieve the goal of spending more time with my family.

This may be common, but I have never experienced a company that is this dishonest & cheap.

About 3 weeks ago a new supervisory position was created. I am now under this person, who is much better & is trying to make things better, but she reports to my previous supervisor so her success has been limited.

I am looking for a new job & can not get out of here fast enough

There's nothing like spending 50+ hours a week in a place you don't like. You've given them long enough to fix things. You've been there long enough to see their true colors. My guess is you're the best employee they have, and they'll miss the quality. Take your hard lessons learned and apply them to the next employer you're looking at.

The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is burning down to the ground today. On the very same day that 3 Muslim women were sentenced for their 2016 plot to do the same thing. Just a coincidence, though. Right?

Of course its a coincidence

its just a workplace accident Rolling Eyes

Never mind that 10 other French churches have burned down in the last 40 days & THOUSANDS of Christian churches, Jewish synagogues  & Christian & Jewish cemeteries have been vandalized in the last 3years in France.

But from the French authorities it's "move along, nothing to see here" Slap

Lets see...what group in France (UK, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Italy and others too) hates Jews AND Christians? um  

I know! It must be white nationalists! lol!

And in an absolutely astonishing coincidence, every EU country just happens to have taken in MILLIONS of people from this Jew/Christian hating group every year for the last 3 years.

move along, nothing to see here. its absolutely, not ,in any way possible, connected to terrorism.

And then, the biggist church in France burns down on the biggest week on the Christian religious calendar. The French authorities race out to declare it an accident before the flames are even extinguished.
move along, nothing to see here. its absolutely, not ,in any way possible, connected to terrorism.   scratch

Any one who believes anything but the official party line is a crackpot conspiracy theorist

beam me up
