Looking at the thumbnail I thought you were working on a bicycle.

Rip VW Went out to the shop this morning. I flipped on the lights and turned on the furnace. I heard it come on but it sputtered a bit on startup. At a minute 30 it was flame out.. Crap I ran out of Heating oil for the furnace. Had to cancel the day due to lack of heat and serious lack of wanting to work in the cold.

Called the Oil guy and he said "I'll put you on thee delivery list". I asked when I could expect delivery and this is what he said "Could be today, tomorrow, or maybe Friday". he said he had to ask Don the driver, and he is like out delivering oil at the time.

I have a small 110 Gallon tank and there is only 1 local dealer here willing to haul less that 200 gallons for delivery. So I am at the mercy of petroleum again.

Being on a fixed budget I can't afford a bigger tank as a bigger tank means a lot more money to fill and that is money just setting there when it is not being used. Nice thing about a 110 gal is when it is empty I am acutely aware of how much it costs to refill. I gotta be frugal these days.

tech69 got some new tools in the mail and will immediately be put to use. My steck straight seam buster came up missing at another shop so I finally replaced it. The copper vise grips are nice for edges. Instead of vise gripping a flat piece of copper onto an edge it's all one piece. Very nice for welding the edge of a pinch flange.

Also put an hour into my bike. Blocking and reapplying filler here and there. Smooth sailing and almost ready for final prime.

Rip VW I was frugal today. I was wondering what I would use to couple the 1/2 round bar pedal linkage to each end. I had a couple a light weight heims but ditched that idea for something simplier and frugal.

I dug in the scrap box again and came out with two pieces of 1/8 steel plate each about 3 inches by 4 inches. I drilled a hole in one end of each and rounded the corners. Next I will cut a 1/8" slot about a inch deep in the end of the 1/2" rod. I will slide the plate into the slot and weld it. I will be able to set the bar attachment position on the pedals to ensure enough travel.

Back to the scrap bin tomorrow for a couple of more pieces of plate to do the other ends.

No photos today I left the phone in the house.
