Don could have used that dust containment system when he pushed/pulled the truck out of the garage last week.

Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Push a KIA or Prius into the ditch this winter if the opportunity arises........it'll build character for a suffering millennial!

I prefer a quadrajet personally...but the Holley will be fine for now. I have about 30 or so to choose from on the shelf. Some are even new in box LoL

I was stomping around in my barn loft and found a 445olds Bellhousing/flywheel. Out in the ole pig barn I have a W30 Olds I pickled about 1998 or so from my jet boat. That engine was fairly fresh...

So if the 350 Chebby gave me even a small excuse, I could see tossing the 455 in there. If it has to get 12 mpg, may as well have power. But big picture, I'd rather avoid a large project.

Again.... I should take the chevy, load a Dana 60 front, 14bolt rear...4 Border patrol beadlocks, and some other goodies on the flatbed and sell it as a bugout project. Dodges RULE  LoL

Nate... that is a spendy Dust system for wood floor refinishing and such. I bet it would do fine in a shop as well. It's taking up space...its like new, very low hours, so I am going to sell it to someone so I can make space.

Does the new garage hang off the warehouse/barn?

Jr.... nah the new shop is in town. It just became more sensible to get a shop in town to avoid having to trailer stuff with nice paint to and from the house.

It's not a permanent solution/yet but for now it's handy. If I ever get time I will get the air compressor installed, some small wiring changes for the welder, and maybe if I feel frisky a lift. It has security cameras, an alarm tied to the police station and in general is just about exactly what I was wanting.

I was thinking the same with that shop he just finished.

Norm, with the shop in town does that mean you get to get more tools?

JR..... not sure I really need any more tools. But like always, if I do...I buy em. Kay never questions tools/guns.

Shop projects:
Install my spare Air Compressor.
Wire in a outlet for the Welder/plasma
Wire in some additional 110 outlets also
build a work bench
Organize hand tools back into the tool box
I am sure there is more....but the above will get me to working on stuff that needs working on.

So Mom calls, her car won't start. So instead of working on my shop, I had to drive 30 minutes, after buying her a new battery $170 (no core)

Ten minutes after arrival I have her car running. I hand her the receipt she looks at it and says "boy batteries are expensive" and hands it back then... "can you hang my Christmas lights, carry the decoration totes upstairs, fix the outlet outside and edge my sidewalk quick?

So I get back to town I stop at the parts store set the battery on the counter I removed from Mom's car with the intention of getting my core $18 back.

I get talking with Kay and the guy says ok would you like me to carry your new battery to the pickup for you? Turns out that battery had a warranty I guess... go figure.

So the lesson... my Mom rips me off as usual, but this time the Lord provided a new battery. So my wife could claim it for her Yellow Chevy.
