Back when I worked on electric motors one guy’s catch phrase when sharing knowledge was “Here’s a trick I learned in prison”. Early on in my time there he was showing me how to remove a bearing off a 6” armature by sanding all the crud off before the torch and impact and said his catch phrase. One of the Mexican brothers shouted out “What? Polishing shafts?!”

I miss working with the bunch!
