back to December Homestead
The Great Birthday Bandsaw Caper
Alot of prep went into reorganizing
in order to add the saw to the shops. This is one of the machining
Finally the day arrived (note "The
Wall" in the background. Steel covered and organized prior
to the arrival of the crate). Part of the welding shop.
Just like Christmas ... I always open
my presents with a saber saw ... ;?)
What a great unit. Wanted one of these
for 30 years.
It has a Super Duper blade welder unit.
Really fine ...
Another wall upgrade project of the
week. Everything needed to be shifted and jockeyed around. It
exposed this wall which was unfinished. I insulated and sheathed
And here's the wall later in the week.
This is the construction of much of
the shop complex. Here a storage shed area goes up for all the
engine tools (snowblower, chipper, mower, chainsaws, pressure
washer, etc.) To be finished as time
Insulated and plywood sheathed inside.
Makes a nice look and blends with the Victorian community.
Moved the indoor testing range too.
By doing this, I gained access for a future project (when the
office moves from the house to the shop second floor rooms). Those
rooms have been sort of marooned due to access. Been in these
particular shops 25 years now. You reconfigure for the routine
you morph into.
A break for birthday dinner on the
5th. The clean up and associated shop dust/grit have my face alittle
more rosy than normal! Kelly cooked me steamed shrimp. If you
want to win my heart ... that works. Then we shared my birthday
bear claw cake with coffee ;?) Then is was back to the shop.
And I got some fine stash to maintain
my super hero figure.
This is "Sweet!" The whole
thing is in English!
Going to be a great winter in the shop
Big Smile ;?)
