    Ok guys, if you like "Tools are Scarce...." wait a couple days, I'll clear off the litho color thingy and make it look right.
    Currently occupied faking a replacement birth certificate; some think it worked once, why not?
    Lol.

    As promised. Can't guarantee positioning suits your own print arrangements, but copy is ready. You should be able to position on sheet with a simple
    'copy/ paste' 'save as' or 'copy image'.

    -Just love it! Thanks, TM51!

    I just printed out and laminated a few in (horrible metric) A4 & A3 sheet size for the workshop and my Walk-in Closet Workshop at home, too.
    None of my fellow co-workers could spot the obvious fault in the poster...
    As someone just said in a different post - Common sense is so uncommon in the Uni world
    that it's nowadays called Uncommon Sense...

    Briefly back in 1971 before I went into the Army I worked at American Manufacturing's bomb machining canter. My job was to run a Turret lathe drill in to a depth then bore to diameter then run in another boring bar and bore a relief bore then run a tap in and thread it for the fuse.
    A fairly simple job since all tooling and stops were preset all you had to do was spin the big ships wheels start5 and stop change out for the next bomb almost impossible to skip a step or mess up one of the processes unless the floor walking stupidvisor came up behind you and constantly leaned over your shoulder while you were busy trying to turn out more than scheduled quota.
    One Night about 10 minutes before shift change, he was doing his best to really screw with everyone by constantly getting in our way. When he walked up behind me and peered over my left shoulder looking close at the drilling operation. I thought screw it I'm going to break him from sucking eggs. I was right about 20 or maybe 25 over quota on my last bomb for the shift when I hefted on the huge wheel of the tail stock a lot harder then necessary forcing the 1 1/2" ish drill bit to shoot out twin curls one of them struck him right in his chest and ripped his white stupid visor apron right off him.
    Oh I'm sorry was I supposed to stop my work while you were in my way I asked? Next time warn me if you plan to do the inspectors Job and I'll stop my machine.
    The next night he never passed by my station once
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I like these. I've been printing out these WW2 posters and putting them up in my shop.
