Years ago, I was looking for a stable platform to do some sawing with my circular saw. In a rush, and not really thinking I used the my CXC to support the lumber, started sawing, not realizing that I cut a notch into the wheel head! I beat myself up for months about it. Then realized one day when throwing my patens(plates) on a wooden bat that the notch allowed perfect leverage to remove the bat. . . gently. I used to use an old trim jim, and get it wedged between the bat and the head, but feeling the notch and lifting on the wooden edge of the bat worked better. Would never try it again, but that one time the accident turned out right.   Have any of you had something similar happen?

My Partner, thinking he was helping, set up the big extruder form me, so I would be ready to run a load of an item that sells fairly well. After the load was run, I realized it was not the size I needed. Turns out, the larger size was an even better selling item, and I dropped the smaller from my line. Who knew?

My worst story is back in high school I just by chance got exposed and handled clay-now look 40 years later and I'm still full time with it. Whoe would have guessed?
