Heres a story I heard one day.And wanted to pass on. One day Jim was going to help grandpa Dave saw some boards, with a John deere B belt drivin saw. The same old B that was the first tractor Jim ever drove.When down in the barn to get tools and such,Grandpa tells Jim to grab that six foot bar.Grandpa says its the most important part.Jim asks what its for,no reply from grandpa he just walks up the hill to the old rusty B and gets to work. So Jim lugs the bar up the hill.He carries over to the old rusty B hesitates(ahh whats another scratch).And leans the six foot bar against the beat up old tractor. So they go on working the day away and take a quick break for lunch. While sitting on pops old pickup Jim notices the bar still sitting in the same spot he set it earlier.But he didnt pay too much mind. At the end of the day when Jim and Grandpa Dave were picking up Jim again notices the bar still in the same place not moving an inch. Not wanting to question his wise but old Grandfather. He has to ask why he brought the heavy bar up and never used it. Grandpa says 'Hell boy I thought you knew' and walks away again.Just like when Jim was a little boy,he catches up to Grandpa and pesters him for the answer. Grandpa's answer was simple and made Jim deffinetly feel like that nieve little boy. Well if you run a couple metal machines with a rubber belt,and not one is touchin the ground.You'll find out in a right hurry they got some static charge that'll curl your hair when ya grab hold. Well there's another lesson from Gramps.

Thats one that had to learned by experience.
