Well, that's different. That guard is clamped, not pinned. Clamping a guard is perfectly acceptable.

On a side note, there weren't any incidents with the saws, but the PM in my picture went down with heat stroke.

You know if you are an old Framer if you can open a coke bottle( not twist of kind) with anything that is within arms reach after you sit down in the garage and the gopher hands you the bottle.
Still amazes people that don't have an opener for those beer bottles and I open it with anything around.

I also always have one on my keys.

Re: You Know That You're A Framer When...


That's so useful to have when you're driving.

Actually, I was just thinking last week how back in the old days, one of the first things you did when you got a new vehicle was to find the "sweet spot" under the dash or steering column or door jamb that eorked as a bottle opener.

Its kind of ironic how many places sell key chain bottle openers and such yet say they don't condone drinking and driving.

Re: You Know That You're A Framer When...


When I was Nick's age, a lot of gas stations would have an ice bucket full of single beers near the cash register so you could grab a cool one for the road. And there were places where you could pick one up at the drive through and they would ask you if you wanted it opened. That wasn't even that long ago. I bet there are a few places where it's still that way.

Not here.

I'd say 5% of bars have a parking lot in my area.
