    Do Not Swallow...

    The "Safety Bob's" in the crowd are going to love this. I got my partsman to drop off a new impact adapter (3/4" female x 1" male)… everything looks normal right?

    Until I read the warning on the back of the tag...

    Seriously?? WTF? Are you going to smoke the plastic tag? Eat a 1" socket?? I would think the anal discomfort would make cancer a secondary problem... guess I'll just have to quit licking my sockets before I put them away at night...

    the taiwanese and the ruskies got together and wiped the product with novichok as it left the factory. as long as you're not an ex-spy and not in semi hiding in the uk you'll probably survive.

    Is it 100% Lead Free?

    It might not affect you directly, but society must protect future generations as yet not born.

    Do not remove the socket from the warning bearing label under penalty of testifying before Congress.

    Can we just use Laser instead? Much lower cost and cleanup will be easier with less exposure to HazMat. Might even be able to power the job from Cal generater electrons if all the AC machines are covertly offened.

    As long as the power is wind or solar generated... It's good to go in California.

    Recent studies in California revealed that water is 100% fatal in lab rats. The tests were conducted following these protocols 1. Take a healthy live rat and surgically remove it's head. 2. Immerse the severed head in water 3. After one hour immersion, remove severed head and check for signs of life 4. 100% of test subjects were found to show no signs of life. Conclusion: Water is lethal to life forms.

    Looking to history we know the few remaining humans in California sent LA cops to the State borders to turn back people attempting to get into California. Those cops warned people California was not fit for human habitation and could very possibly cause their death.
    The few foolhardy people who crossed the border against police advice all died.

    Back in the mid eighties I flipped a coin. Heads was Miami, tails was San Diego.I always was a fan of head.The only thing toxic in the State of Miami is the cocaine but man was it high quality.The Latin gurls, fishing in the keys, hunting river ranch and the glades, real bass.Max 2 hours to incredible islands and food.
    OH The adaptor. It's supposed to say Proto. If I'm putting a zillion ft lbs on something it will say Proto on it.

    yep... I bought a bunch of Proto impact sockets back in the 70's and I have yet to break one. They are good. I'm not too worried about this one since I'll be using it with non-impact sockets but you're right … anything that big is going to need 8 ft. of steel bar on it. I just bought a tandem disc with huge 2 1/4" nuts retaining the discs that I'm working on. I found out if you heat the nut red hot and put a big pipe wrench on it with 7 ft. of pipe, you move the nut but collapse it, which destroys the threads and relocks it on the way off. I'm in the process of making 3 big wrenches capable of holding the square nut on one end and the 2 hex nuts on the other without collapsing them. At one time you could get them from Allis Chalmers, but they are no longer available. The purchased socket isn't deep enough for the second nut so it will just be used to spin them off and on with my 3/4" ratchet after they are loosened.

    A really nasty virus outbreak in Calif, appears centered in the Sacremento area.
    You catch this, you are susceptable to a multitude of allergies all causing various cancers.
    Some older natives seem to be immune, , , , ,

    I just seen somewhere that it says that the state of California has declared that wood saw dust causes cancer along with the byproduct of roasting coffee.

    Everyone burns California for warning labels. Heck California sets standards that are adopted globally for good reasons. Cancer does not always happen right away but rather 10,20,30or so years later when we age and everything slows down like our immunities. Harp on California all you want but weather hear is very nice all year round in several locations. Don’t be a hater and group all Californians into the dipstick category. It’s the corrupt politicians that ruin everything even here in Cali.

    im sure there are plenty of level headed people with lots of common sense in California( or any state that has gone haywire), but they are a small group surrounded by the rest that are compete idiots that vote and get crazy a$$ laws passed..

    I could easily replace the word "California" in this statement with the word "New Jersey", and have it still mean the same thing.

    Does Joisey have a HIGH SPEED railroad from Noplace to Where?

    Does Joisey have a Giant Puddle that was used to demonstrate the benefits of deferred maintenance?

    Is it Illegal to generate electrons from liquid or solid fuels?
