Wing nuts vs. lugnuts?  How's a mother to choose??? :biggrin:

Life is no fun without risk...go ahead...take a leap...use the wing nuts.

I was cured of wing nuts (the metal ones on a battery) when I got blisters from their heat once.  I am not sure I have ever been able to get away from the other kind, like a few of you guys on here ---- 

Did I really say that    :doh:  Shame on me   :redface: :facepalm:

You said it.  We heard it.  We ignore it.

I'm sure glad he didn't single anyone out.

While I've never used it for sanding gel coat, I've got an electric right angle polisher/sander that I've got a hundred or so hours on wet grinding/polishing concrete. I usually use it outdoors and I'm standing in a puddle, although its used indoors as well on soaking wet concrete floors. These electric units are used by virtually everyone who grinds and polishes concrete or stone. A gfi breaker, rubber gloves and rubber boots are standard equipment. I've never gotten a tingle using this get-up. On the other hand... back in my general construction days we routinely used electric drills out in the rain with extension cords running through puddles. No one heard of gfi breakers then. Small shocks were expected although always surprising.

Darren,
I am certainly impressed with your patience and attention to detail while restoring the Arimas you have owned. I myself have neither of these attributes.  :doh: I can't wait to see the pics when you are done.

OK, how did this morph into Wing nuts?  I'm lost... :shrug9:
