Sex has gone right off the boil since I cleaned my 19-year marriage with a soft brush and examined it after transit. I thought my sex drive was sound and I checked by tapping gently with a non-metallic implement but organic wheels do not give the same sound as my inorganic dance teacher, who I discovered gives plug and cone tests at home. I booked a course and after ultrasonic testing he made a pass at me. He lay me flat on a rigid based material, avoiding uneven surfaces and it was ages before I had the strength to push him away. That night I piled heavy castings and tools with my husband, we used trucks for the larger ones; it was the best it had been for years. I should cancel the other classes but can’t wait to check his spindle speed to see if it exceeds that of mine and I fear I won’t be able to control myself if it does. My husband’s nuts tighten in the opposite rotation two days a week, so surely a fling won’t do any harm especially as his thread is tightened only enough to drive my disk.
Husbands rarely take kindly to other men mounting their wives on makeshift apparatus. To make things more even-handed you might like to arrange some private lessons for your husband with an attractive tapered spindle or buffing machine, to save him being left out in the cold – but I think not. There are no guarantees that he won’t find the hole size is too big or too small. He could become suspicious of your loose or worn bearing and come home early to find a thread extended inside the flange but not in the hole in the wheel. I suspect this man is a romantic grinder who sees you as a perk of the job and once you stop paying you won’t see him for dust or shavings. It is your bearing surface and I am not going to give you permission to burst on your husband. Instead you could spice up your abrasive particles with your husband. I recommend reducing grain size and using adequate lubrication.
