    the joys of being a printer m8... the joys!!!


    council work.. big show over the weekend and about 300 meters of print to be done.... only way to do it is to run the machine for 15 hrs solid everyday.. but its been running since 5am yesterday and has only stopped to change material or clean it.... bloody think is still going strong.. will be for the next 3 hours till its time to change the inks or material again..

    I feel for you man, sucks when you can see no end in sight. Can only imagine how hard it must be to work so long, but at least your pay will shoot up as you don't have a chance to spend it while your working?

    Surely your employer cant let you work that long, must be against the law.

    My longest is 13 hours, rarely goes over that. I work two jobs though so i work alot of hours.

    Im self employed I never leave my job Although longest days are usually 5am to 10pm or similar. Depends on the job, you do the hours your need to do at the end of the day.

    Stu take it easy doing that many hours mate, mistakes can be made when you are that tired, and you can hurt yourself. Double check everything, as I am sure you know
