Well if it doesn’t work as it should I’ll get a better one, just thought I’d check it out. It only has 2 sensors I think not 3 or 4 like the better ones. 

 

No doubt. I’m by no means hating on it. It worked well 97% of the time for me. The only reason I upgraded was because I moved/didn’t bring mine with and I don’t have harbor freight here. 
 

You have a nice build going btw. I’m most jealous of your rotisserie.

Thanks, I was lucky a friend offered it to me way back and going back to work helped as well.

Tracy is a treat, as well.

 

I bought nearly every piece of rubber they offer for my wagon, save just a small few bits..

I welded my whole 521 using one of those.  Worked perfectly.

Thanks I'm trying to get on it everything keeps getting in my way now the city sent me a letter wanting me to cover my windows on the front corner of the building so no one can see in at my mess. I'll have to talk to the fella on Monday. Having only 2 days off to be here doesn't help but that's life.

Easy window covering solution.....1) spray window with water, 2) cover with tinfoil, 3) squeegee it down.  Blackout and will stay for a long, long time!!

 

D.U.N.!!

Yeah they're lucky it's not me, I'd go to the thrift store, buy a bunch of blankets and tack them to the ceiling. And if there's space for a display, I'd put something random in there

There are glass protectors you paint on (use a roller for texture you can't see through).  Once dried you can then peel it off, months/years later.

There is also self stick "window frost" so you still get light but not see through

Your city is trying to protect other residents from being exposed to a view they may not like?

Man, it's a good thing there aren't any real problems that need solving, I guess your city workers are so efficient that all they have left are the make work projects.

After any patch work on the floor pans and seams strengthened and it's all cleaned, probably so. Still a ways off but little by little. Can't wait till February is over cause it gets cold during that month but it's been not to bad this year. When it gets warm again I'll take a week off and get more focused on her.

Got a moment to check out the wire wheel on the angle grinder to clean some on the underside.

Now I should not have to hear anymore from the mayor, because I am helping move McComb forward and keeping it looking alive as he stated in his letter. Like the Special Man said in the old Frankie and Johnnie's Commercial Let Em Have It.

Sorry for no report on progress, been moving everything around in the garage to get some masionary work done. Got to try to get the fella back the beginning of July to  finish in the garage area. Then make some room to get back on things. I did get a couple of old arcade machines moved the other side of the downstairs out of the garage, so now I have room to set up a bench and move my L20b motor parts over to it out of the way. I'll report back later.
