Let’s face it guys and gals, at one time or another every LumberJock has made an Olympic caliber throw in their shop. This most often n\happens when we turn a $100 project into firewood or a $100 saw blade into a cheesy wall clock..
I have always shared my shop with a riding mower and a few other yard tools.
A few months back I got my brand new Ridge Carbide blade from Woodpeckers. I always use WD40 to clean any manufacturing residue off of the blade and spray silicon to reduce friction. You guessed it, dropped the dang thing on the floor right out of the box. When I saw the busted tooth I commenced to christen it with a few unsavory adjectives. No way in heck I I could have hit that lawn mower tire if I’d been aiming. It was an Olympic caliber shot. $100 saw blade plus $40 for a new tire turned that little exercise into an expensive endeavor.
Fortunately Mrs Moore was not around or I would have had to do some extended language training.
