Truck Frames

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

One of my income sources is inspecting weld quality of various Ford truck frames at a facility that manufactures them from rolls of steel coil.  They taught me how to weld, then placed me in the department whose sole job is to take them apart.  Which can be tricky depending on the weld & it's location within the frame.  Which involves finding, marking, cutting... then grinding + polishing the weld to prep it for measurement & evaluation of its various features.  I like measuring.  It's air-conditioned.  Cutting with the plasma torch in this fucking heat... not so much.  Fat boi becoming slim Tim; literally melting the pounds off of me.

Old Joke

A young Timmah is walking along the street and he sees a welders mask.
So the kids excited and he picks it up and puts it on. He plays with the eye visor, flipping it up and down, puts his arms out and makes engine noises.

Just then a guy in a van comes along and says "hey kid, you want a ride?"

Timmah thinks why not so he gets in the van. As they're driving the guy says to the kid "hey kid, do you know what masturbation is?"

The kid says no.

The guy says "hey kid, do you know what dry humping is?"

The kid says no.

The guy then says "hey kid do you know what a blow job is?"

Timmah finally looks at the guy and says "hey mister, I gotta tell you, I'm not really a welder, I'm gonna work at Fords"

 

 

ps Where's this fishing video ?

ps Where's this fishing video ?

...and it's the best-selling truck in the United States over the past 40 years or so... moreover, it's the best selling vehicle, period over the past 40 years.  

Either that's high praise for the price point value, or an indictment of American sensibility. 

(you see why I'm paving the road to hell with good intentions;  when it's my week to mark & cut, that 100+ F heat in that closed-circuit respirator takes it out of you...even at the spry age of 50.  I've got 1/2 a terabyte of pics & video accumulated over the past 2 years.)  

Now that it's my week to rotate to the  AIR-CONDIt0NED measuring room, I might be able to toss-out the occasional dogging video.

I  had a similar job years ago in the QC dept of a foundry checking castings and weld repairs to them. Looking for gas bubbles and cracks. Every pour had test parts that I got to destroy for testing hardness and strength, much fun was had.

Lyrics: "I woke up this mornin' with the sundown shinin' in I found my mind in a brown paper bag within I tripped on a cloud and fell-a eight miles high I tore my mind on a jagged sky I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in I pushed my soul in a deep dark hole and then I followed it in I watched myself crawlin' out as I was a-crawlin' in I got up so tight I couldn't unwind I saw so much I broke my mind I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in Someone painted "April Fool" in big black letters on a "Dead End" sign I had my foot on the gas as I left the road and blew out my mind Eight miles out of Memphis and I got no spare Eight miles straight up downtown somewhere I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in I said I just dropped in to see what condition my condition was in Yeah Yeah Oh yeah"   Kenny Rogers 1972
