Just got a Monday customer on a Thursday.

We just had a customer come in here wanting us to swap some tires out on some rims he had.

Problem is, he started the process on his own, with the bright idea to cut the tires off the rim...I guess not realizing there is still wire in the bead bundle.

Now here is where you get to start laughing and shaking your head. His next great idea to remove the bead bundle was to use........ drum roll please......... it's going to be good...........I promise you........ are you ready....... a cutting torch.

Well, the only thing he actually succeeded in cutting through, was his aluminum wheels..... as we pointed out to him.

This is why there are 30 pages of warnings in a 33 page product manual.

Bet that was a stinky mess.... That is how I remove the bushings from the arms in a combine, the only way is to light them off with a torch and burn them out.... Of course I stay upwind.

Not of the same caliber... At my job we stock and sell industrial pipe, valves and fittings. There is a difference in fields of suppliers.. IE plumbing, utilities, oil field, etc. Some of the stuff bleeds over.. but any way. A pet peeve of mine is when customers(usually walk-in) want a list of materials and just say schedule 80.. one usually knows when you hear that it is PVC S-80 because they don't tell you PVC as you just magically know that. The materials we stock are 304 and 316 ss, carbon steel(welded and seamless), PVC and CPVC, plain/black and galvanized and so forth not to mention a host of alloys and chrome plus tube sizes. We stock S-40 and S-80 PVC and S-80 CPVC up to 12".

The point to the story is for some reason if they want PVC you are supposed to magically know!!

Sorry to rant

Believe it or not, my wife's uncle's neighbor has an old tire mounting machine. You never know what's hiding in someone's tool shed!
