D.O.T. / Re: WDYDT (What Did You Do Today)
« on: January 22, 2019, 05:06:23 PM »
Ran to electrical supply house for 2’ of 3/4” alum flex conduit (whopping $1.95) because HD and Lowe’s want to sell nothing less than 25 or 50’ roll....

So then it was back to more wiring. About half the shop is wired now.

Interesting Charles, quick question do you find yourself logging in and looking at the live feeds often?

We had cameras setup at my old facilities (mainly to make sure automated machines were running 24-7). After leaving there I’m glad I don’t have cameras.

My new shop has them (whole facility does in fact) but I won’t download the app. John who owns the development obsesses over those cameras too....

New house is setup with amazon and ring on the front door which as you know can be expanded (not sure I like any of it, we’ll see)

I thought these things had AAM units in them???

Not sure, just recall him mentioning the Cummins powered nissans were prone for axle issues

My 2 cents, it’s tough to buy a motor used and run it with any expectation of reliability. So you have two options, buy new crate motor and or find a unit to go completely thru. The secondary part of that normally involves another person with machine equipment and my experience on multiple occasions with them is they can bring the suck.

Shawn. Great thing about this discussion is that most of it is academic. And I appreciate our ability to have a civil discussion. I haven’t spoken with him but I have read quite a bit about it. 

If and when I make the decision to resist my family will be no where around.


Plan and simple the dude had a bench warrant and despite the confusion or mistakes they waited until the later date (3/20) to start to bring him in. You think had he surrendered they’d have still shot his family?

Cause and effect.

I undersrood your viewpoint, it doesn’t change the fact the trigger men were murderers. I mean really, making a shotgun illegal was the basis for this whole thing right? It’s been awhile since I read on this but the whole thing stunk when I was reading various reports on it years ago. Depending on who you listen to the guy was setup into doing it ie: it wasn’t something he normally did for a living.

Unless you have stainless wire and the right mix handy don’t bother spending the extra for it. The original is mild so it’s only as strong as that....

Burn it in hot otherwise, shouldn’t be any issues. Make sure both are clean prior to weld.

Ok, so sitting in church last Sunday and Jim our pastor (KY lineage so must be good right?) started a new series on Men. Jim is a gifted speaker and great pastor. This particular series I thought was a good fit here for real man. I will be updating this post every week as a new sermon has been given. If you have a few minutes it's worth a watch.

this is the one I have, it has never given me a problem, it will run 12V or 120 not too heavy, the latches are a little wimpy but do the job.
Not bad Phil. just under 30 pounds and 63 quarts! I like it.
But, now I am told it will be stored on the back deck area.
Momma took one look at the missing seat and said to put it back
Not going to fight city hall, so the cooler goes aft! We can take it out when its beddy-bye time.

Don, why not best of both worlds? Momma ain’t coming on the mens trip. Pull seat, wire with quick disconnect and removable mount. Pull fridge when at home and not needed. Pull seat and install when heading out....

Well, they released her yesterday on 2 liters of oxygen. Cardiologist & pulmonologist are pointing their egos at each other and reality is no one knows what’s going on with her. So not good really, the oxygen is a bandaid.....

Nice work Baylee.

You break tools Shawn?

I bet that center console is 2 small for a burb.

Sometimes (needing to lay off the juice at the gym I guess!  :tongue:) , but nothing like my 140# (soaking wet in boots ) welder used to. That guy broke bowling balls with rubber mallets!

Darned shame the front piece didn't fit!

So Don sent a beautiful fabricated center console he had in his basement. Two things stopped us, one was there ebrake handle and the other was that as you go rearward between the seats they taper together. I looked at cutting it apart and reassemblying it but in the end it was just too nice of a piece to do that with.

I removed the remaining six transmission to block bolts, along with the motor mount fasteners and the remaining wiring harness connections. All that is currently holding the block in place is gravity.

The engine crane is not in my garage and like I always say, if you own a John Deere tractor it is likely broken down. Mine is, again, and in the shop where it has been most of its life, where I can't use it to move a couple hundred pound engine crane so I can use that. But the good news is that I still get to make payments on the thing although it is seldom if ever used!

It’s a short block right? Pre rangers on one side, you on other a 2x4 and a chain. Pick it out of there.... :popcorn:

I agree, couple gallon milk jugs of solid ice in a yeti are the ticket. As long as you have another cooler for drinks.

Now Baylee can put some junk in her trunk.....

Unit was made by best top from what looked to be 14ga steel that had been powdered black. It was relatively easy to assemble and install. They give you a makeshift nutsert install tool (spacer and long bolt) however we just used our chinaman handy tool (I didn’t break it this time) and the inserts were easily secured in factory holes after removing the oem rubber plugs. Now the tj has a secure lockable trunk.

So USAA hasn’t been very much fun to deal with. Other then negotiating to remove add on items such as winch bumper, winch and lights we really haven’t gotten anywhere. I’ve provided example after example of the high cost these low mileage xj’s bring in Colorado run. So long story short the Xj needs to find a new home. I passed on buying it back for $1300 as well. So today Baylee and I stripped the good parts from her Xj.

I concur, if you ever road with Baylee you need these. Sluff is the retired navy guy btw & all components are American made. He is also a staunch 2a supporter. Baylee has a bit of an issue as he was changing card processing services when she ordered due to the former being anti 2a.
