      Send the new kid on a chase for the raised mesh stretcher as I told him that I cut the mesh one inch to short. Took about 1/2 hour before he came back swearing a little. Our shop is 3 building together plus one across the road.
      Welding shop, steel shop, machine shop everybody knows about the stretcher chase.
      So he goes to 1 guy and this guy gave it to the other that left it across the street with the other guy and so on. Always a blast

      I wouldn't call the guy not so bright, it is very easy to get fooled when your young and learning. LOL

        We had a kid fresh out of school that knew everything ...we had a bunch of plate to cut and he wanted to do it. I passed him the torch, he's looking at the lines and trying to figure something out (could see the wheels turning). Then he asked me which to turn on first the O or the A. I just looked at him and told him that I thought he would have learned that in school. He said he couldn't remember, to which I replied, "ever light air on fire?" (I know air is 78% Nitrogen, but that wasn't the point). He just looked blank. So I told him to just turn on one and try to light it, when you find the one that produces a flame, that's the right one. He lasted a week .

          Sorry, Monte; lotechman and enlpck have it right.

          en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_current or just Google something like "electric current flow".

          (it's not one foot per second, however!)

              Oh, well. I don't get why you don't get my post, but I should have stayed out of it . . . I'm usually out of it in any case

                  Looks like he is refering to comments made on August 11, 2008 starting at post #71. I was confused (Edit: by the comment) as well.
