The nail gun tip is an excellent one! I’ll definitely put that one to use, and of course the racing stripes one too.

The squeeze out mask is a really good idea. There are other clever ideas in there too but I am not going to give them all away!

Chad, I finally figured out why Dan, puts up with your dancing….It keeps you out of his beer. And if he wants a uniform I suggest you get him one. Don’t be cheap!!! :)

Thanks you guys. To reply to some comments. Yes, green tape works too. I’m not sure why Safety was complaining about uniforms. I got him his own, “Staying Safe with Safety Dan” but he always losses it. And your right Safety doesn’t care if i dance like a fool, but i best not touch his beer. :-)

I was ready for a smile today, and the tips are a bonus! Tape is my third hand. Plain ol’ masking tape works well, is cheaper, with stronger adhesion, but is a pain if left on too long. If painting, use green, always green…

Chad, you are a born joker. I say that in the kindest way. You are a funny guy. It’s a gift to convey good information in such an entertaining manner. Not to leave out Safety Dan, great dead pan.

Thanks David. I do woodworking for a living, but i believe it should be fun. Writing the scripts can be the toughest part. Safety never knows what the video is until I hand him the script when he comes in. Many times i film it out of sequence so Safety can’t invision where the video is going. Only after it’s edited does it make sence. Anyhow, it’s a joy to do this and give people a laugh, chuckle, or smile is what it’s all about for me.

Your alright Chad, and I looked at your early projects, very impressive. I take back the cheap part if you already bought safety Dan, his own T shirt.

That’s ok Bob. I’ve been called just about everything:-) You know, I just realized i always post my videos but never pictures of my job/projects. I’ll have to start doing that. I’ve got a ton of them.
