The Heat Is On

Finally got it installed and working. It puts out waaaaayyyyy too much heat. I am going to be out there in my underoos working on the bike this winter. The insulated pipe off the top will heat my wife's quilt room upstairs and there will be another one off the other stack on the top to the pool table room but that can wait.

Newest Welder

I had a little help in the garage and might have found a new welder/worker. For 7 he is getting the hang of it. HAHAHAHA

Welding Frames

My buddy asked me if I could weld the frame above the rear wheel on his Montero. I did the other side last year and it needed an inspection. So last night we got the plate cut and area welded. Today he is going to undercoat it. I only have this one pic to show what it looked like and it was too late at night to get a finished one but you get the idea, and this was one of two that needed to be patched.

Fucking Railroad tracks

Well where I work there is a mess of railroad tracks. They take out bicycles and pedestrians like crazy. They almost got me one day on the Harley but the weather was good and I saved it. My buddy had a wet surface yesterday and couldn't pull it out. Did some damage to his bike and broke his hand up. And he did it in the exact same spot I almost bit it. Pretty much to drive a mile you would cross no less than 10 sets of tracks going every which way on the road. Sometimes you are riding between the tracks then hit a switching station. Kinda looks like this pic but with tar. Get well soon so we can ride again.

My $50 CL Find

I wanted to get a smaller snowblower instead of using my riding mower with snowblower attachment. I got beat out of a few before I got to this one first. She wanted $75 and said it hadn't been run in two years. I tested compression and offered $50 she said yes. Got it home checked the oil and put some clean gas in. Plugged it in and it started right up. WOOOHOO. Shut it down and cleaned the carb so now it runs with the choke off. Everything works so come on snow!!!!

Shuffling Shit

I rearranged the garage to fit the heater in. I moved the table with vise from the left to right and the big wooden one from the front left to left of the MC table. That gave me room to fit the heater in the front corner perfectly. Now to plumb and wire it this weekend.

Now Were Cooking With Oil

Found this on Craigslist. Had to drive a little over an hour to get it but for $75 with a 25 gallon tank I couldn't pass it up. Going to use it to heat the whole garage, both rooms and upstairs.
