"Hold the light so I can see not so you can!"

Growing up in the midwest I was a big boy. Threw a lot of hay bales and delivered water softener salt as a part time job. I also thought that tighter was better and busted more than a few bolts.

Had my share of stern talk.

Many a fond memory, now anyway. Not so much at the time.

Fully concur.
While helping my dad wrenching, I too tended to overtighten things. Led Dad to tell me to stop that because "when it must be taken apart again, odds are that I (Dad) must do it".
In vocational I tightened a chuck to the main shaft of a lathe so strongly, the instructor could not remove it when he needed the chuck changed. Background was that not long before that I got nearly killed by a 30 lbs chuck that was slung from a lathe, because someone had failed to tighten it properly.
Yes, good memories

One day after the ranch got the first diesel tractor they bought. It stopped running so my dad and the foreman were working on it. I was sitting in the seat making a pain of myself. Two hours of working and a few cuss words later. I took the top off of the fuel tank and said. This tank is empty. Both of them stopped and gave some very stern looks and a good talking to. About playing some where else.
