Both of the fine repairmen have the same safety violation. Their fall restraint lanyard exceeds 6'. :w00t:
Other than that, the only white knuckles appear to be coming from this forum.:whistling
If there was a picture of a little side job I did last month, it would look a bit like the guy with stacked little giant ladders. My adventure involved an 80 yr old wind mill attached to an equally seasoned catwalk and a 10 foot metal grain bin entrance ladder. Throw in some 16ga electric fence wire and a few hose clamps and you are starting to get the picture.
My mother would not be so proud, but the install was flawless in the end and a happy customer forked it over. :clap:
I am sure we have all been on some set ups that we would not be proud of. We may have even had a mishap or two because of these. Sometimes you just have to figure out a way to do some things that require "special" thinking.
Anyone ever see the shows Fred Dibnah done? He was a steeplejack in the UK and he done some crazy stuff. I see a few of him climbing to the top of a chimney with wooden ladders he would install whilst he climbs it. Interesting shows.
Check him out if you never heard of him. Sadly he died but i can watch his shows for hours on end.
