"So I can heat up this cone bearing and get the screw loosened."
"Boy, it sure looks clean."
And the next thing I knew he was in his part of the shop rustling around with some tools. Then I heard the grinder going.
He was grinding down a very large and long screw driver. I watched as he honed it down to fit into the slot on the screw. The cone bearing was in a VMV (Very Manly Vice) He put a vice grip on the shaft of the driver to get more torque. Still no go.
That's when he got out the torch. He got that nut red hot. Carefully placed in back in the VMV and used that big, honking driver and TURNED THE SCREW. I was so excited.
"I'll get you the other one." I had to dig it out of the naval jelly and clean it all off.
"I don't suppose I have time to run and get the camera, do I?" asked I, as he lit the torch.
I ran. I found the iphone in the car. Much closer. Which explains the lousy photos.
And then positioned the driver into the screw.
