It got mad because you tried to set it on fire!
Take time to heal up, the car and us will still be around.

Yes it has OI. But not in a while.
I don't have a lot of leg left below the knee.
When I sit on the short rolling stool to move my self around I push with my legs or plant my heels and pull towards the direction I need to go.
The planting of the heels and pulling towards them is what did it.
Dislodged the stump in the receptacle enough to rub and cause a row of blisters to form on the very bottom.
The question is how long they will take to heal up now.
So I wait.......
Thanks to all for the support.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

How high does this stool sit?

(Just wondering if one of those battery powered chairs could be modified for enough height clearance, so you could move around w/o using your legs to move yourself. I know that new ones are terribly expensive, but used ones show up from time to time in auctions, and sometimes don't bring a whole lot.)

Only about 16 inches off the floor Neto. I put it in the raised position to sit down on it. Then lower it all the way down once I'm one it. I can just barely get under the car with it and I can't raise the car any higher.
I'll just have to be more aware next time I get under there.
I've done garage stuff from my wheelchair before. It is doable but something always seems to be in the way of me getting close enough to the work to do it comfortably.

Is 16" probably the high setting, or when lowered as far as it goes down?

Lowered down as far as it goes, Neto.
I also have a creeper with a adjustable back but that sits really low and I have to get down on the floor to get off and on it.
