    On top of that, spraying glass cleaner, drawing penises on hardhats, chaining lunchboxes, caulking gang box locks (funnier than hell-I did it), hiding stuff, etc...

    Happy Friday everyone!

    P.S. Sorry about my retarded coworker grabbing his sack. And yes, we (by "we", I mean "I" since my coworkers don't do shit) put all those frames and glass in.

    I don't see any sack grabbing in any of the pics, but the first picture looks kinda like R2D2. I'm assuming that's a ticket booth. lol

    We've been known to tapcon tool boxes to the floor.
    Sometimes I miss those jobsite pranks.

    Looks like you guys have a lot of fun on the jobsite. I remember the days of pranks, flex duct tie bands around drive shafts. Screwing a 10' section of standing s-lock to someones toolbelt then hiding all the drill chucks.

    Or screwing the lid shut, caulking triggers on drills, hanging joboxes from the ceiling...yeah, its fun. I don't always like the work, but I love my job.

    One of my favorite pranks ( usually reserved for smart asses ) was to coat the toilet paper in insulation. Didn't matter if it was in the shop or in the field.

    Your a duct man aint ya Kevin?

    Yes, 16 years worth. Actually I am the shop manager/head sheetmetal layout man for a hvac company. Not exactly the career I would have picked but I seemed to have knack for working sheet metal.
    The insulation on the toilet paper trick, so evil yet so funny. :D How about yourself Yote, sounds like you have a bit of duct experience under your belt, sir.

    20 years as shop foreman/ layout man. 16 years doing residential and small commercial and 4 doing industrial and blow pipe.
    That one career that picks the person instead of the other way around.

    My goodness what a large square to round. Looks like a lot of fun to spot weld together. Looks really good, nice even breaks collar looks even. I don't see any stickers so I'm guessing you laid it out by hand instead of a plasma table. Very nice craftsmanship. My little shop has just gotten out of the dark ages, somewhat. In the past couple of years we picked up a coil line, plasma table and a nice sized hydraulic break.
    About the only pictures I can dig up are some drop cheek elbows that I was particularly proud of making when I first started layout.

    Your right, I did lay those out by hand. But there wasn't really anything spcial about em except for the size. Of course anytime you run TDC on 16ga it's a pain.
    Drop cheeks are one I always hated for some reason. Not sure why either, just never liked layin em out.

    Coilline and plasma tables will spoil you.:D

    16ga is some tough stuff, we have it in black iron here. The heaviest galv we use is 18 and that normally reserved for adapter and standard curbs. I can only imagine how much of a headache it must have been to run that through the TDC machine considering the gauge thickness.
    We purchased a TDC machine about 3 months ago and have been loving it. Its very nice to cut down on the amount of ductmate we had to cut and screw, so time consuming. Now if I could just beg upper management for a wrap brake.

    When I was working at Jake, about 50 % of the duct I built was 16ga. Nothing under 20.
    The 2 things I didn't like, was running the 16 through the TDC and beating those 16ga pittsburgs over.

    But, TDC is a huge time saver in the shop. If you can talk the boss into a corner machine, that'll make it even more time saving.
