    For those of you with knee problems ..well most all of us that still work ...
    I have 2 of these the 24x18 and 36x24 they work very well and seem to stand up to most stuff in a shop .

    I also have a set of these for more mobile jobs .

    Also work well, just mind how tight you put the straps for leg circulation.

    I have something similar to the pad. Not sure if mine has the prop 65 warning. I'd hate to get knee cancer.

    Good morning! At the Dealership getting the Corolla serviced. He’s got 50,000 miles and still getting 35.5 mpg. :thumbsup: It’s time for tires too.
    The technician will like me....clean car, no crap inside, been serviced regularly, and the tires aren’t down to the steel cord.
    @Tacoma Mike Did I do good??

    It’s gotten to the point where everything I buy has that sticker on it. I got some hardware for my drums and sure enough the sticker was on it. What do they think, I’m going to chew on it?

    I don't use those much anymore. I mostly need something for when I'm welding and the slag dropping in really sucks. My knee board pad has all kinds of slag burns but at least I can get away from it....and those straps. They bunch up the back of my jeans, then the sweat collects and the lack of circulation, before long, it's just uncomfortable and I'm throwing them. But the boards/pads make it nice. I bought a few pads 4 or 5 years ago when Lowe's had them on clearance. They have a hard plastic backing so you don't feel the rocks underneath. They do take a second to reposition as you move but those are well worth it.

    I think it's really great you spent time like that with your son.
    I'm sure he's going to remember it for a long.
    That's one thing I regret not doing with my dad, just sitting in a bar and having a beer.
    Heck, when we were kids he would pick us up from Sunday school and go to a bar. He would buy us a soda and candy bar and say don't tell mom. Mom didn't find out until after he died 10 years ago. Its amazing the things you remember.

    Just made my day thanks for that!

    Window unit in the reloading room died so today need to replace it provided work stops calling me. Been in the low 80's and low humidity but feels hot so central AC been on for the last week. Tomorrow drops back down to high of 70 and looks like stay that way rest of the week. But I got to keep my powder dry and cool for now.

    Quite a few of us started here in our 50's and though we have now passed the 60 mark never really moved on to that other club. It is 50+ here after all. 55 I still felt like I did when I was 40. Now not so much most days..

    I’m speechless. We’ll see how good you do when the seat is moved. Thank you for your consideration. I’m sure he appreciates it very much .

    You gotta love it :cool:

    Work all day in Florida's 90 degree weather and then "Hang out" with Con for "Art Walk" ….. The things we do for our better half...…….. and Yes , Bourbon was consumed :hattip:

    This venue is actually in "Boot Legger's Alley" and even though we have Florida's sultry weather the foot traffic was great ….. and they were spending $$$$$ :spending:

    It's doing pretty well, pretty close to full range of motion. I can walk pretty normally, for awhile anyways, just need to not rush things. Thanks for asking.
