I went to the kitchen to nuke some breakfast leftover spaghetti, and heard a crazy loud noise. Garage door spring broke with tremendous force. I had just opened and closed the door to take the garbage out.
I was just at the work bench five minutes before. I was looking at a nicad battery operated dust buster; curious from the recent revive a battery posting here! That spring could have crushed my thick Irish head!
This spring is probably from the 60's. I've been meaning to put safety cables through the springs for........ many years.
What next ?!
