  • First Aid kit

    Since I don't know where to put this, here it goes and I'll let the PTB fit it where it should be.

    How many of you carry a Fire Extinguisher?


    How many carry a First Aid Kit?

    How many of you know how to use either?

    In the basic First Aid Kit you have the normal bandages and ointments and such, but how many have super glue?

    Now you are asking, WTF, Super Glue?

    Well, yes, and here is the reasoning behind it. It was originally developed as an "in field suture" for the military, that is the reason that the temp of 98° fires it off. Simple to use and functional, it is also sterile so you can't harm with it. I have used it in the mending of an Exacto knife cut along the end of a finger with no scaring, and we all know how much bleeding the end of your finger does. As long as you have 2 pieces of skin that mate, no matter how ragged, you can mend them together using super glue. The next time you are at your favorite drug dispensary, look for the 6pack of little tubes for a buck or so, I think even HF has the little 6pack. Or even the Dollar Tree, or 99¢ Store, I know they carry it. Get a couple packs and stash them with the other First Aid kit goodies.

    A word to the wise, if you don't know at least the basic first aid, learn, or hand the kit to someone who knows, as with our sue happy generation, doing something wrong, even for the right reason can get you in trouble.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

        Certified in First Aid and CPR. Years ago my dog split one of her foot pads and was bleeding out bad. I used wound wash to clean it out well and super glued it together. Had to keep her down for about 20mins for it to set. Good as new!

        I carry the Halon extinguishers as you saw on the other thread and they double as wheel chocks

          Well now, since you must know. I was sitting in one of those chairs that lean back. Someone told a joke and i laughed so hard I turned the cahir iver backward and a bookcase stopped my fall. I don't remember the joke and the glue worked! I also use it to seal up cracks or cuts on my fingers.

          Commercial fishermen especially long liners use lots of super glue.

                You just brought back a not so great memory
                I was fishing in the everglades on a boat, i was in the back and my brother was in the front. He went to cast his bait out and in the process caught me in the neck with the hook. It lodged so deep that it stayed in on his follow through. Then the dude that owned the boat didn't even have a F*** pliers, they had to drive around to find another boat to help.

                WTF that hurt

            • #12
              Yes, my buddy and I were done fishing on the James River and put canoe at boat ramp. I walked around the backside and my buddy yanked the canoe up the bank. The rods were hanging off the side and a stick bait with treble hooks sunk deep into shin to the bone. We didn't have pliers so cut the line and let bait hang from my leg. Stopped by my sisters house who is a nurse. She was too weak to pop the hook back through so got my brother n law to do it to cut the barb off as I swigged on a bottle of Knob Creek.

                This Will Put Your Shorts in a Bind
                by Tom Wesenberg
                While rebuilding Mark's Model A tranny, I had a tube of Super Glue in my pocket, and then I set the tranny in my lap. The weight of the tranny squeezed some of the super glue out and glued my shorts to my jeans. I keep a can of Acetone in my house, so once I got home I was able to soak the glue to make it release. If you use super glue, it's wise to also have acetone handy.

                Time between Priming and final coat
                by JohnB15632
                I am finally finished with stripping my A and all of its parts. I am getting ready to prime coat the A and all of its parts.
                I found out today that the paint I am applying for the prime can be applied at 60 degrees F. The top coat can not be applied until the temperatures get above 75 degree F.

                Question. If I get a couple of 60 deg days, I can prime. However, how long can the A...

                How much is it worth? Original 1928 Tudor
                by Jordan
                I have considered getting another Model A to tinker with for a little while now- but a school teacher I can only afford so much. I have ALWAYS wanted an "original" car to make into a "grapes of wrath" type vehicle to just have fun with. I almost got one last year- but someone else got to it literally 30 seconds before I did.

                I found this 28 Tudor and the owner is asking...

                U Joint Rebuild Kit... Beware
                by rheacox
                Wanted to bring this to everyone's attention that may not know, I sure didn't.

                I have the transmission out of my car to address failing bearings and figured I'd rebuild the u joint while it was out (mine was just starting to get sloppy). The u joint rebuild kit was out of stock at Berts and when I called to see when it was coming back Steve said never unless a quality one hits the market....

                Anybody ever try this? (Plating)
                by Terry, NJ
                Well, in looking over my A parts, both needed and surplus, I realize that they all need plating. Some youtube research has led me to believe that it's not beyond our skills and resources. First, you need a tank to do it in (5gal plastic bucket), second, you need a power supply, battery charger, battery, or a real power supply. A supply of nickel to plate from (Anodes?) I'm thinking of using a jar...

                Stainless Steel Buffing Advice
                by Kevin in NJ
                Over on the 'other' board someone had posted asking what to do for buffing some stainless. I answered there because I just try to help people, but I thought I would share my response here. I have had some recent not so nice responses over at the other place so I have cut back on my comments significantly.

                Calling all body/sheetmetal men, Need opinions on what to do
                by Terry, NJ
                Today I started a Patch Panel project on my 30 coupe. It's the panel just behind the door and at the bottom of the body. I'm a little confused about what I should do. Should I cut everything off and weld the new P.P. in as I have done in the past. I never did one just behind the door, at the bottom and it's a little different. Just what do I cut out? What do I leave? And then I can always use the...

                Transmission swap
                by DaWizard
                Mitch, I'm not sure where this should be placed, so I'm asking here.

                I have been pondering a trans swap to a 5spd OD transmission and was wondering what the experts out in interweb land think.

                I know I am going to need to pull the trans sooner or later and when I do, I want to get me a 5spd OD and install that instead putting the original back.

                So my fiancé just got this model Ford as a heirloom and it was her papaws, he stopped in the process halfway of completing it to make it out to be a woody of some sort because the body is all wood, from scratch from his own creation. But was told it’s a model T, I’m just the nominated one to do the restoration and thrilled to have the pleasure of doing it up for her since it was her papaws and...
