It's amazing what you can get when you have caffine and/or coffee as a bargaining tool.

Common mate, keep up

Log = logistics = quarter master

Give quarter master coffee and cigarettes and the quarter master gives me what I want.

PPE = personal protective equipment = gloves, eye wear, boots, dust masks.

Coffee for Log staff gets you the best stuff.
Coffee and doughnuts for Reme techs if you did/may do something stupid to a vehicle.
Complements and a smile to the cooks no matter how bad the food is. It can be worse and they know who their favourites are.

Just thought I would share that.

Spuds, why does one pad wear more than the other?

We have 20 styles of boots approved for work (we pay for them) and only two of those are composite toe aps. The rest remain steel. Composite caps that meet our crush requirements are very very expensive.

It doesn't really unless your piston is stuck, which is a relatively common problem.

I actually check both, as I don't have a problem seeing the outside pad either.

Genuine expressions of appreciation are what really make the world go 'round.

That's interesting. I haven't worn work boots in a few years now. I assumed the composites were further along.
