Times you should stay away from the garage.

Pulled the rear out of the 64, Got a buddy to help lift it onto my (Workmate)this without drums or shafts. I wasn't going to do anything yesterday, then thought I'll just play in the garage for awhile, Well! I found one of the boards had cracked and the axle was ready to fall off, when I tried to lift it to reposition it ,the work stand collapsed, as the axle assy. was slipping out of my hands it hit a plastic gas can and ripped the side of it out, there I am 90 weight oil pouring out on me standing in a puddle of gas,it wasn't all bad the gas dilluted the gear oil. Had to make a mad dash for the circuit panel as the furnace,comp. and all the other stuff were running.After 1/2 an hour I was able to close the garage door, the fumes were tolerable. Iguess I should go out today and inspect the carnage.
Hope your day was better.
