So there I was changing the blade on the band saw - took the old one
off, and did that twisty thing to fold it into a quarter sized round for
Then I found the nice big large tooth re-saw blade I wanted, and went to
uncoil it. Now I was taking all the proper precautions (or so I
thought), cut proof gloves, and keeping it well away from the face etc.
First time it did not "untwang". So I adjusted my position and tried
again, and which point it sprung back into shape rather quickly, and
with a whoosh the bottom bit of it sprung round and hit me in the nuts!
(blunt side fortunately). Had to lay down on the floor for a bit after that!
There was a man and a women at the bus stop the other week.
I wasn't sure if they were ahead of me in the queue so I politely enquired if he was getting on.
He replied, "I'm banned" and then explained why, "for pishing on the bus". I thought, yes, that would do it.

One thing to be very wary of is offering to repair anything powered by
Gramophone motors are notorious for giving people lacerations if the spring
breaks free or indeed just breaks. I once narrowly avoided injury from an
old meccano clockwork motor when the hooked bend retaining it broke and it
shot out like some demented rattle snake.
This newsgroup posting comes to you directly from...
I compressed my mercedes front spring once prior to replacing it and feck me
one leg of the compressor sheared and the spring flew down the other end of
the garage....very dangerous .......very lucky I was
Just changed a rear spring on my Zafira yesterday. I was very pleased
that it was no more than jack up car, support on axle stands, support
suspension arm on jack, remove lower shock bolt, lower jack, swap spring
and reassemble in reverse order. I hate and fear spring compressors!
The downside was that having taken it for an MOT on Friday and finding
the spring snapped, I couldn't do it in the afternoon, as I was due at
the dentist. So I did it on Saturday morning and took it back in at
12:45, only to to find them shut - despite the signs inside and out
saying that there are open 'til 16:00 on a Saturday. Shut today and I've
got to take my son to a hospital appointment first thing tomorrow
morning, and then start a new job, so I can't take any more time off in
the week to get it retested and my wife is currently medically unable to
drive, so she can't take it. Grrrr.
Okay, I can use her car in the meantime, but a Matiz is not brilliant
for a family of 5 and shopping!
I should have taken mine in earlier (MOT ran out on Saturday), but with
my wife unable to work and me being out of work for 2-1/2 months, I was
holding off 'til I knew some money was coming in. A month of the wait
has been waiting for security clearance to come through.
No it has five. That's why we bought it in the first place, when the
children were all small. It's one of the few small cars with five belts
and although we never normally use it for the whole family, we chose to
have a five seater, so that it could serve as a just about useable
backup for the family car.
I stand corrected......yes I hate small four seaters as well....you feel you
are being cheated......cept for the mustang which I had five in on the
island of millport as the polis don't care....they were sitting sideways
