Have used me for glasses, they were fine. We had a prescription from another DR. Have done that with several DR looking for the best price on glasses.

Few makes em in house now, so go for price.

Parts going back on, cool.

Is the new turbo a VV also?

I think the hood will lock straight up for service. Remove the front bolt on hood and rotate up, then put a bolt back in.

Sent you a message on the manifolds.

Sweet. Always good to go hands on and the issue in the garage is resolved.

Will there there be a floor drain in the garage?

All I did was some minor patching and sealed the stair trim.

Can you run the pipe straight up on the back of the cab? With an oversize pipe it will stay cool and have no water issues.

Sounds like a great marketing campaign. M855 at 100 yards.

Reminds me of the time I POd the Baytown PD by shooting up their steel plates with some penetrator ammo by mistake.

Always use anti-s for any dissimilar metals and no rust is good!

Anti-seize yes, but no SS? Thought that was the best or does the cycling kill the gains?

Nice work there with all digital. Even auto controlled valves! Looks like we have the same heater with the nickel core, better for salt systems. Just paint the pipes.

They did a standard timer on mine. I do need to upgrade it for real time info and running the solar.

Honestly, get a cover for it to keep the heat in and gunk out. Just cut to fit leaving a hole for the heated water.

In some cases the blades on fans like this are not equally spaced.  Doing this can help reduce the noise that a fan blade will make.  The unequal spacing can disrupt the air movement and breaks up the frequency of the fan blade without having a large reduction in the volume of air being moved.

..but more importantly, it allows a mechanic a place to put his arms along with tools.

I call BS, no engineer ever thought about the guy fixing his design down the road. Most likely because mechanical engineers in their own mind design things that are fail proof. Granted they never met Don.......

This I agree with. Look at the Dmax, nothing is designed to be worked on, nothing unless you pull the cab!

Glad the system is what you need. I am about to add another 4k to mine. I miss about 40% of the sun with my setup and the new one has a direct output when the grid is down.

Will GLO remain where it is or move out near you?

looking good JR.  Whats the plan for base trim?


Some 4in that had matching bullnose I found at HD. Have to cover those darn elec cutouts or I would have gone shorter. That is what I have to paint now. Cheep plastic 3in stuff went in the closet.

Not hard to clean out. I lubed mine and 10 years later it was fine. The spray gun is easier than an air sprayer is. Mine is a Spraytech 3000psi with a dual piston.

They make gas powered to if you think it will be just for the farm.

Pull up your panties and deal with it Dave, or just go build your house,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

So Don started a fluid change with another fluid change not finished? Anything he can ride in, is at the farm, but he is keeping us updated.

Don, do you have an airless? I think it would work just fine for Chief and any other task you have out there and they don't really pull that much power. You have the generator or just pull near the few outlets you have at the hide.

Nice thing is little overspray with them and you can spray at any angle.

I have an anvil crimper that works good. That and good heatshrink is a must. I think the hand hydro crimpers would be better.

The All Terrain have changed and I heard mixed reviews about them.

I am getting close to a new set again, will go with 37s this time with a gear change. Still have almost a 1/4 on the rear, more on the front.

I would volunteer but keeping my mouth is not in mix. How does Dave get to fire people now? Maybe the house build has got him going some?

So BD, what is the timeline on this and is the fan off yet?

I built from scratch using separate scales. The kit above is made for a mill and has readouts as dedicated unit would.

Anytime.

Just got mine from amazon and I need an oil change, more like a fluid change!

Looks like a solid machine with options.

Building a DRO is not hard at all. I made mine using separate scales from ebay for under $100. You can get kits for way less made for mills; https://www.ebay.com/itm/Digital-Readout-DRO-Linear-Scale-Kit-for-CNC-EMD-Milling-Lathe-Engraving-Tool/202255320316?hash=item2f175b44fc:m:m2w8AegNQnijq36sP4crxWw

This little valley was setup for shooting too! Had a nice rest as you came in right near where the flags were. Several plywood area up and an 12" plate at around 250yrds. Wanted to break out the AR.

Here was the entrance and you can just see the rest in front of the tent, then the 100yd target. 250 was on a hillside but not in any pictures.

Thought all the fires were gone TRN? I just got another mag of "7".

That is a lot of work to grow plants off grid and a good looking shop with a built jeep?

I took the boys to a camporee this weekend just 15min form home on private property. Was gourgeous all weekend and raining now, reminded me of the "Hide"

Took a couple pics with the drone too. I need a better one for sure,,,,,,,,,,,,

Looked again and the 755 has a bigger  table and more travel. I like the square post too, less flex.

The 755 is how I would go. Larger table and power feed means a lot.

Flooring done, have a little touchup around a couple outlets is all.

Got some cheapo molding for the closet and another small shade as the first was not the same style as the large one (good ol HD)

No work this weekend, scout camp this weekend.
