I Bought Something Today That I Don't Want The Government To Know That I Have

So far they are still legal.

The reason I don't want the government to know that I have it is because I know they are stupid enough to break it with a rubber mallet.

    1. You wouldn't happen to have the ACME phone number would ya?

      I really, really want a pair of those rocket powered roller skates!

  2. Something to go with your heavy hammers?

    I once had one made from a length of railroad track. Disappeared in a move. Dang.

    1. I about pee'd myself after I started looking for a good used one.

      Holy crap are they expensive!

      Surprisingly hard to come by too, unless you want to pay exorbitant shipping fees like I did for my band saw.
      99 bucks for the saw on EBay, 500 for shipping by the time it was all said and done, to go 250 miles.

      I learned an expensive lesson about on line bargain hunting.

    2. Ouch! Shipping ate you alive. That's where the veggie van saves my butt. Worth it to drive the distance.

  3. I need to get one of those myself. Although doing much steel pounding with this shoulder poses some interesting challenges...

    1. I'd build some kind of counter weighted hammer on a pivot if it were me and I wanted to do a bunch of pounding.
      Give the pivot some slop so you could do a bit of angled side pounding action when needed and make that fucker heavy enough to git 'er done.

  4. Phil, the acme phone number is 1-800-ded-bird, and they ship fedex. :p lol


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
