The thing frightens me, even though it's tested for 200PSI WP and it's only used to 110. Almost think it would have been better for it to just fail testing instead, just so I wouldn't be so leery around it.

Sometimes working under jack stands makes me a little woozy too especially if I have to raise them to the max, mainly because my garage floor slopes towards a drain.

That's why I use these unless I'm doing tire or suspension work.

Don't worry about it. They don't typically explode catastrophically. They typically pop a leak at the weak spot, like a little pinprick leak. Tacked it shut with a bit of weld and it's still holding strong.

This one can be very bad news. The one that I worry about catching me by surprise is gravity.
>young me, years ago
>helping Dad fell some cedar trees that had died
These were fairly small trees, maybe 16' tall and the thickest part of the trunk couldn't have been more than about 6" in diameter.
>he'd cut it down and cut the trunk into four lengths before he let me move in
>was cutting through branches close to the trunk with a bow saw
>cut inch thick branch and the tree section immediately pivots

He only let me work with sections small enough that I could drag or roll by myself, which was a good thing. He'd warned me about that several times and demonstrated, but I was still caught off guard.

I used to work with someone that was dealing with a much larger tree that was on its side. Apparently they didn't know about the forces and just tried to cut into it from the top down. It shifted and pinched the bar, and they had to track down another chainsaw. Could've been much worse.

As for hydraulics, I've seen the pictures of people's hands and arms lanced by a jet of hydraulic fluid. It just peeled the flesh away.

Waking up one day and finding no other forms of life left on Earth but myself
>>
When I was a kid and I misbehaved, my father used to punish me by pulling his shirt over his head, and tucking his arms in, and holding an ax through the head hole in his shirt. He would then refuse to do anything that an ax with legs couldn't do, so for example, instead of cooking dinner that night he would just smash the cutlery draw with his ax head, and I would go to bed hungry. Or if I wet the bed, he would smash the bedsheets with his ax head. This might sound 'fun' but he was a fucking drunk and used to do it to traumatise me. my mother was scared to intervene because apparently he did the same to her and once hit his ax head into her asscheek and gave her a pretty bad scar. He used to do the ax man whilst making horrific metalic noises with his mouth which he could do even when drunk.

so, my biggest fear is any of my axes growing legs and attacking me. My father is dead now but I still have nightmares about his ax personality. so its not really safety related (I am very careful when working) but it is my worst DIY fear and I do get irrational if any of my axes goes missing that maybe it got up and is now sentient.

A slow death. Seriously. I would rather die without pain if I die doing some work. If I get caught in a lathe let it snap my neck, if I die in an explosion let me be atomized, if I get electrocuted let it stop my heart, if one of the chemicals I work around enter's my lungs let me pass out before I drown on my own phlegm...if I am to die that is. If I had a wife and kids my worst nightmare would be to die without telling them how much I loved them. I'm not afraid to die, I'm afraid of torment.

Everything else can be repaired or replaced.

Get a set that is rated more than your vehicle weighs. I have a 3 ton rated set, used them for years with a several different vehicles, never once sagged. Bought them to replace the steel set that pancaked under the weight of a F250. Plastic doesn't rust.
>>
>>1255772
Do you have a 3 ton set? Get a 6 ton set, wider footbase, and most of the time you'll have enough height by the 2nd click. Keep a puece of 2x4 around because you might need an extra inch to get them under some low cars. Always check to make sure it's sturdy by pressing down and on the sides of the car once it's on the stands. Inspect your stands every time before use. If you even think your stands are bad throw them out. Damage them beyond use or hide them in a trash can so no poor fool takes them and get's themselves killed. If all for feet aren't on the ground take the car back up and readjust them til they are.Only put them under structural parts that don't move, no control arms. Always set them at the same height. Don't go under a car on ground that is noticeably unlevel. And always, always, always block your wheels. I don't care if your parking brakes are on, I don't care if it's the driven wheels and you're in park. Block your motherfucking wheels.

If the car is old and I don't trust the jack points I'll usually have redundancies, like 2 hydraulic jacks raised just enough so they're touching the car but not applying any upwards pressure.

Rule number 1 about safety, if it seems like a bad idea, it is.

dumb people have been trained to believe plastic is durable/sturdy which they then convience themselves that if it doesnt instantly break then its INDESTRUCTIBLE and then, over the course of their lives, increasingly use plastic containers in an incorrect manner until they work their way up to using milk crates as a jack much to their own misfortune.

Holy shit this is like my most terrifying and realistic nightmare. I always imagined the truck would smash me instantly, not that it would pin me and slowly...squeeze...the...life...out...of...me, each breath just a little shallower than the last, drawn out by as small as the leak is.

Have a FPE panel with breakers notorious for their inability to trip, or defective breaker of a different brand. Put screw in wire, turn breaker on, dead short created and it starts arcing. Breaker doesn't do shit because it is trash, arcing continues and viola there is your fire.

I used to say shit like that until I became an electrician. I used to be fine leaving the dryer run when I left the house too. I've been to a small handful of houses that caught fire from the oddest of things too. Is it likely? No. Can it happen? Absolutely. Everything has a fire rating.

>>1257672
Been in several hot fucking attics (electrician).

Most memorable was this summer I had to replace an attic fan (not the whole house kind). These small units kick on at a certain temperature to remove heat from the attic. It was around 1 p.m. on a very hot an humid day. Access was in garage, had to crawl through some parts to get to other end of house. I was soaking wet like I got out of the pool just by reaching there. All said and done with I kept adjusting the thermostat to see what temperature it would shut off at.

>115 degrees, not counting humidity

Terrible. Another time recently spent 3-4 hours fixing terrible junctions in this guy's attic. According to his digital thermostat it was 109 most of the time. No insulation and he brought a box fan up for me, but the level of suck was still up there since it was the attic of a 2 story house.

rich people are terrible. I got sideswiped by an old lady in a mersades who turned out to be one of the richest people in my state. I clearly had the right of way and a dash cam and 3 witnesses who sided with me, plus she was belligerent to the cops when they showed up. refused to move her car out of the middle of the road. said I had been doing 100 mph. various other lies. anyway apparently she sued my insurance company and held things up in court for them for over a year. just because she wanted to.

I've always had this nightmare where my head gets caught in a slow moving but high torque clamp of some kind, and it slowly breaks my neck then continues to twist my head off. I've never encountered such a machine, but I know it's out there waiting for me.

When I was at university, we had an ultracentrifuge (~40k rpm) blow. The rotor, which should have been replaced several times by that point, split in half at full speed, launched itself through two drywalls and a brick wall before sailing majestically across the campus and mercifully not killing anyone. The centrifuge itself jumped through a drywall and 'merged' with the mass spectrometer on the other side (also a total write off).

The real horror was that the crowded break room was on the same floor and if the heads had broken at 90 degrees from where they were, someone would almost certainly have died.

Always get a prenup. If the chick flips out at the idea, she's not who you want to marry.

Question? When I change the oil on my vehicles I drive it to a hill in our yard where it's high enough for me to get under comfortably (rural fag) it's all pretty set and packed earth, so my question is am I gambling hard with my life or do you think I'm good?
>>
>>1262075
So you are putting one of the front wheels on the hill with the other on the flat to get under? No way to say if this is safe or not without seeing the situation, just remember that grass can get really slick when wet and pulling a spanner might just be enough to get it sliding on a steep hill.
If you are really worried about it dig a little hole you can drop the lower tire in to secure the vehicle.

That is why these exist, it's easy to get lazy and not bother but if you are working around people you don't know are competent it's worth the time.

You need a face protection AND eye protection.

Having an accident as a lineman. Even with all the safety in place there's a lot of risk of shit going wrong with live lines. I try not to think about what would happen if 7200+ hit me.
>>
>>1262128
Electrician here, I have done a little 11KV work and got offered linesman work but you couldn't pay me enough to touch that shit.
>>
>>1262132
Kek I'm only a student at the moment so no live work but in 2-3 years I'll be working live. I met a guy with both arms amputated because he grazed a line. Just recently a pole snapped onto a lineman with live fuckin wires that fell on him and he lived.

Ive been hit by 120v a plenty of times, just make sure you never complete a circuit from arm to arm (through the heart) and you will be fine. Obviously try to avoid being shocked but if your doing something that might shock you hold one arm tight behind your back. Rubber soled shoes help too but the capacitance of the human body is enough to still get bit by AC. If you live over in yurop i cant say this will work, 200v+ is pretty scary territory and i wouldnt work on that without 00 rated gloves until im certain its dead. Altough ive seen that maniac terrorist electroBOOM touch much worse on purpose and live to collect the ad revenue for it, i still dont think i would try it.

Most women (even the ones who arent looking to steal half your shit) wouldnt stay with a guy if he asked for a prenup simply because it means hes very likely planning on getting a divorce at some point. The only time prenups arent frowned upon by the non gold digger is when you have millions and it just makes financial sense to do so. My (better) advice is to marry a woman that makes nearly as much or more money than you. If my wife and i ever get a divorce, splitting our bank account and possessions right down the middle would be a fair deal.

Aussie sparky here, been bit by 240v a few times with nothing worse than some cramping to show for it.
The only time I ever got shocked with a customer there was of course the worst cramping I have ever had, trying to talk to her like everything is fine while my right arm is trying to fold back into itself.
>>
>>1262248
Baguette here, not an electrician.
Have been hit by 220V a few times, it's not that bad.

Most women aren't whores. Your social circle sucks Anon. Sorry.
>>
>>1262724
>Most women aren't whores.

maybe not in the legal sense, but the attractive woman who has never used her attractiveness to get something of value does not exist unless she was born wealthy and even then a woman's sexuality is usually her most marketable commodity.

Men of course are to blame for this, not women.
>>
>>1262140
You don't even need to be a linemen for a live wire to wreak havoc. Stepping down from an excavator that was touching a live wire will do it.
>>
>>1262726
So in short:
- all attractive women are whores, literally or figuratively
- all men are retards
- possible exceptions: ugly women, rich women and gay men
>>
>>1262739
I'm a man, not a gay man, but I'm attracted to ugly women. Does that make me a retard, or am I somewhere else is this equation?

Does this board really get shills? I mean i know /x/ and /pol/ do but why would /diy/?
>>
>>1264645
90% of the time "shills" are just trolls or people with a different opinion, this goes for all boards.
I don't think I have ever seen an actual shill on /diy/ but there are plenty of fanboys for various brands / manufacturers.
>>
>>1264647

Fair enough. I give most accused "shills" the BoD because generally they come across as sincere opinions on the wrong board. But if there is CIA operative posting here, i imagine it's because he's bored lol

If you know anything about Prism and other known NSA programs you know that actually having LEO lurk for info is a thing of the past.
