my friend sent me a video of a site he on, you know the big nail guns the chippys use, they managed to hold an apprentice up on a stud wall and nail him to it. He was a good 2 foot of the floor :D

we convinced one lad (bungalow)that in medieval times they used bamboo as conduit with wet string inside cos wire hadnt been invented yet and once a week you would pour water down the top of the bamboo to keep the continuity

Saw one lad holding a bucket underneath a bit of twin and earth dangling from the ceiling. Was there for ages.

Apparently he was waiting for the voltage drop !!!

once had my steel to caps welded to a lump of RSJ, whilst still wearing them. Ouch!

Had a similar trick with a megger where the switch was a rocker type one way was continuity test and the other insulation resistance test.

Told apprentice to hold the leads and pressed IR side boy did he jump then electrician got hold of leads but this time pressed continuity side no reaction from electrician told apprentice until he could take the megger test he would be no good at recieving a belt off the mains.

When he found out the truth he called us all the c***s under the sun for doing it to him.:eek:

Another trick we played on him was he came to get his toolbox which was metal and couldn't find it, asked where it was told him to look for it.

He finally found it welded 8 foot of the ground to a steel beam.

send the apprentice to the wholesalers for a 'long weight'
Or send him there for a 'terminal weight'
Or 100 metres of 6249Y 25mm
When cleaning up at the end of a job - send him out to the car wash for a bucket of steam.

I could go on.....cruel though ...ain't it

Used to earn a few bob by telling apps to nip to store for a "silent door bell"
the eyes used to instantly light up and you got the usual no such thing. One fiver bet later back they came with a mountcastle "silent bell"
Having a deaf school on the books can come in usefull.
