If I would have had a shotgun or sledge hammer in my shop..... my shrink wrap machine would be DEAD!!!

And thats all I've got to say about that!

Oh wait! Just remembered that aluminum baseball bat under the counter. I'll be right back...
There, there. Feel better now??
There is something very cathartic about bashing machinery into little pieces.
I put new parts in it.....aaaarghhh!

I'm getting myself a box of Saran wrap. Can't be any #!*?X# worse!!!! :mad:

(I am starting to feel better)
I glanced at the title to this thread and thought for a second it said "Oh Ye Evil Mecianne!"

and then "Uh-Oh, what have I done this time?" Oh...it says "Machine"...whew!

Feel sorry for your shrink wrap machine though! :D
I'm still trying to figure out how a dinky little shrink wrapping machine could inspire such ire. Could there be more to this than you're telling us, Tom?
Well Jim, it has been kind of slow and my wife also had me matting and shrink wrapping about 50 small watercolors she is taking to an art festival Saturday. Everyone a different size. So shrink wrapping just put me over the edge....the machine has had a mind of it's own the last couple of months.

I guess it all just came to a head, Doctor. A couple of cold "Barley Pops" and an El Rey del Mundo Robusto Larga made it all better when I got home this evening....
Tom, I've always hated shrink wrapping so, when my first shrink wrap machine blew up, I took my time replacing it - about four years, as I recall.

When I finally did get a new one, I kept raising my shrink-wrapping prices until I didn't hate it any more.

Of course, your wife might get upset if you did that to her.
I am an active member of the RSPCSWM. Thats the Royal Society for the Prevention and Cruelty of Shrink Wrap Machines. The idea that you are thinking of using a shotgun, Baseball Bat, or Sledge Hammer has got me extremely worried. :D
Thanks Sherry. Great source. Will give those bags serious thought. May save a life!! (evil machines)

And Dave.... a buddy told me years ago..."unless they got 8 x 10 B/W glossy photos, deny you did anything!"

Just think on the bright side … the fumes will make you dizzy.
