    ROCKROOSTER

    I found a boot brand called ROCKROOSTER and ordered a pair of slip-on work boots for about $90.00 and as a welder/grinder I have been very pleased indeed that I did so. The boots have proven to be very comfortable, break-in easy and (by design) keep the grit and grime out of my work boots. They...

    The good news is I finally had my hard cast removed, man that is great! The Doc. says that the injury/healing is looking fine and 6 weeks in a web-gear Velcro strap brace and then we will talk about physical therapy. I am so pleased to have that hard cast gone, it was really bugging me.

    I would straight talk that so called "friend" if he could hold his mud he might be worth keeping around. Yeah, I don't have too many friends but that's beside the point.

    disk grinder

    I went with this one for some quick finish work, I really like it. It is made by "BuckTool"and for a small sander it is the best one out there at around $205.00. My other disk sander is as those pictured above but runs on 220 volts which I have found to be a very good thing. I do like the looks...

    ROCKROOSTER

    I had some co-workers/friends from Australia that wore slip-on/slip-off work boots daily. When I inquired about them they said "Oi man, get ur Blundys, Mate".

I am looking forward to the pain starting so that I may feel something in my arm again. The Doctor also fixed my carpal tunnel in my left wrist while he was in there, he said to come back...

    Distal radius fracture. I broke the large bone in my forearm and pulled it out of it's socket with the hand. The doctors are saying that it is a pretty serious injury and no one knows if I will lose some mobility/flexibility in my wrist/hand movement. I of course think that I will heal up as...

    The good news is covid test today surgery scheduled for tomorrow. I know surgery sucks but I am looking forward to it, getting past it, on my way back to healing and going back to work. I am an American man with a family and responsibility and work is what I (we) do.
