I sent some "blem" hooks to a very good friend of mine recently named Wayne. Brilliant guy (most of the time anyway) with lots of great toys-just not into the forums much. His wife snapped this picture to send me:

Been there too. Looks like he's well into that weld. That baby isn't going to come of with just a whack from the hammer. :laugh:

Kenny, Looks like he knows how to weld. Maybe he wanted them that way. If not it seems like he might need at least one more!

I hate when that happens. At least it's fixable, or maybe he wants to wrap the chain around the back for some reason.

I can assure you that was not the case!
Oops might not have been what I said, if I did that! Probably would have been a combination of the "other four letter words"!

I agree, more lift capacity lifting from the back, closer to the bucket pivot pin. If it was turned 90 degrees that would be hard to explain.

Plus he has that "Rhino horn" in the center for off the front of the bucket.

I looked at the picture and thought, WOW, nice welding job, wish I could weld that good. Five minutes later I realized the oops he made. Count me in the been there done that crowd.

It's really Kenny's fault...................he sent the guy a BLEM.................with the hook welded on the plate backwards.

I've thrown lots of nails away that had the head on the wrong end when I went to pound them in.

I always return those nails back to the company. They then resend me the nails with about 50% of them being fixed. After 10 or so times you really only end up with a couple of bad nails. :lol:
