  4. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    Have been cleaning up a couple scrap metal piles, dismantled a steel truss for angle iron. Found a lost oxygen pony bottle,. Cut off the bottom for a dishing tool , rigged up a part of a r x r spike for the bell clapper . Extracted the high density foam out of the old hot tub cover.

  7. Found a usable donor to cut up. Will chop the back down closer to the 10" stack outlet. Cut a side radius out over the fire pit. Will probably have to run a strap on the back down to the lower outside table frame on the forge for support. Will only have 9" on each side to sit on. We will see

  10. What Did You do in the Shop Today?

    yeppers I have a tandem dump to weld up cracks at the door column at the hinges then plate over with some 16 gauge tomorrow,, tested with the .030 already in the machine was way to much wire dia. . switched over to .023 and "more gooder " results,, 70/25 gas shielding. Remember to watch the leading edge of the burn not the back fill puddle

  14. Last fall Lowe down box stores had a Makita chop saw and 4 1/2" 7 amp grinder combo marked down from $199 to $149. Being frugal as I am, thought to wait till the close out sale. I have 3 of said stores within my normal travels. One store had only one the other two had 5. Checked on the one and it was gone, store guy said they did reduce it for clearance a week back and went quick. Went by another store and was told they too clearance priced them and one guy bought them all. Stopped by the last store and they still had all five units along with the $149 price. I talked to a store guy and ran down the story of the other two stores and then we began to haggle. I realized I had the upper hand in this negotiation being they were closing out other tools for new incoming stock. So I got the deal closed for $100 . My old dewalt flapper grinder is on its last leg along with the cheapo 25 year old chop saw . The Makita grinder also too has the flapper switch which I prefer.
