I’ll take tore down saws to the job to wash in parts washer. Have also taken some small welding projects to glue together too. All while consuming a few beverages.

I just wish I could take the mini x home for a weekend....

Yep - first Thanksgiving at the glass plant many moons ago I was assigned to help a couple mechanics. We spent the day replacing u-joints and cleaning up parts from one of their 4WD vehicles. I asked what's that? "government work" I was told.

Fourteen years in that place, and I truly believe I became king of government work. I couldn't begin to tell you how many deer stands, weight benches, Harley parts, even tattoo machines I worked on there. Considering the pound of flesh I routinely gave for the plant, I reckon it was a fair trade.
