It's worth preserving. Nothing modern is comparable.
I respect that
I see all these pictures of historic buildings on the server and twitter and I'm ok, so great your posting this stuff, but am I the only person who's actually saving them?
Remember when the trades were segregated? Whites, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, masons. Blacks brick layers, not masons. Hispanics dry wall, painting, and metal studs.
Still is for the most part
They are switches. They're just spring-loaded the upper one pushed in is for on. The place I was at today has them. You can purchase new ones there replicas for when they wear out
Sweet, thanks for identifying them bro
In the 30 years I've been doing electrical work I can count on both hands the # of black electricians I've worked with
@Lebens around here seems like everyone who swings a hammer calls themselves a carpenter. Low voltage guys calling themselves electricians, nigga you're a cable guy...
@Deleted User wow in the last 15 years I can't tell you how many blacks I've worked with calling themselves carpenters and they can't even read a tape measure.
I only hire our people period
So much of being an electrician is visualizing your work in your head. Whether it's the circuitry or the manner in which you're going to run your conduit racks Etc. They just can't keep up.
Watching One troubleshoot something is a riot
Lmao you're so right
We have to visualize everything
And understand it on an electrical "engineer" level
Nigs troubleshooting is like watching a trainwreck
Haha oh I know. I did cable a few years back to take a break from back breaking labor. And the blacks couldn't handle it. A literal monkey could do it.
A coax stripper and a crimp tool were too much for them to grasp
And cable is so simple, start at the pole every single time and work your way inside. It's cake
They follow gibs law
Lil' twitchy on the trigger!
He seems to be doing ok. He swears he's coming back to work tomorrow. He's that guy who works 7 days a week and thinks he's freaking superman.
He told me that he never felt a thing until after he left the hospital. That's how you know it was pretty bad cut.
Now it'll hurt like hell.
That's what he said. He got lucky. The things I've seen this man do with a circular saw blow my mind, and a fucking ladder took him out.
Well, wish him a speedy recovery from the Alt Right.
Haha will do. He'll appreciate it. He has 12 white grandkids!
Starting my first batch of organic kefir.
Ukrainian/Russian style Borscht w/ grass fed beef, cabbage from the motherland, onion, organic carrot, potatoes, dill, organic garlic, crushed black pepper, Georgian nectar herbs, majoram, lemon juice, and a little organic whole milk.
That looks amazing
A new Blurb should be up tomorrow about what kind of tools you need to always have on hand in your garage.
Also I start my Comercial Driver's License Program on the 21st, I'll take pictures of equipment to post up if I can.
