Heads Or Tails

Will I have a job to go to next Tuesday or not?!?!? Hope they can get the budget done but I don't think they will. This is what I picture Washington D.C. looks like.

                                                 Plus a quote I like.

“This is an astoundingly irresponsible way to govern,” Mr. Hagel said, adding that a fully functioning military went beyond its uniformed forces to its civilian personnel. “If this continues, we will have a country that is ungovernable.”

Sewing Machine

A friend got this for free at the dump recycle store. It was in a table that was crap. I rewired it, oiled it and made a nice little box for the bottom to hide the mechanics so they can display it on a shelf. It runs better than any new machine, so nice and smooth. If you can find on get it, most of these will do leather too if your into making wallets and things like that.

Building A Treehouse

Well my son has been bugging me for a tree house so I finally did it. It isn't high up actually only about 4 feet up but that was the best tree to stumps place we had. It is 8X8 and 6' high in the front 5' in the back.

Here is a pic the first day I started the build.

Then I added the windows I found on the side of the road. They tip out on hinges.

Then I built a small deck and door. He looks like a happy boy.

It has indoor/outdoor carpet and he took our folding picnic table to have a place to sit.

The hole under the window is going to get a freezer door type of covering. That is how the dog comes in.

Cleaning Carburators

Had a neighbor of a friend drop off his pressure washer because it wouldn't stay running. I pushed it into the garage for the night and when I got up the next morning all I could smell was gas. Went out in the garage and there was a nice puddle under it.... hmmm what could be the problem. LOL I tore the carb apart and it was plugged up good. I don't even know how it was running at all. 

Notice the black hole in the center of the carb.

                           Now you notice the hole where the gas gets to the engine
                                           This is kind of important LOL
