Too Many Projects I guess I got to work on a "show car" today too, at least that is what the owner calls it... I only have 1 pic from the side for now and I'll keep the rest of the surprise for when I get it down and can get pics.
For now, we/I am doing a "little" frame repair...

Photobucket seems to be working some after their major overhaul, so I've uploaded the pics to there for this post.







I cut out the entire right frame rail to section in a replacement.

Shims in the pallet to tighten it up on the forks can help too!

The best part, my wife is so accustomed to seeing these things, when she saw the double ladder arrangement yesterday, she just said "that looks really safe"...

Well, I can't get the second pic to post upright. She held the camera vertical and that's how the memory wants to keep it. I rotated it in my file, but it keeps coming up sideways...



Next time, close the file after rotating, reopen the file and it should "stick".

Dave57210 [QUOTE=Too Many Projects;4758301]Another fun day in the "shop". If all, y'all thought I was a little goofy before, this here may just be the puddin on the pie. While I was installing the diagonal boards you see on the base of the joists, I noticed my "floater" joist was a little saggy, so I decided to tie it into the top perlin. Problem was, I couldn't reach that high from the pallet, so I improvised and brought the short wooden ladder up on the pallet. DANG that combo was wobbly to stand on, and when I pulled the trigger on the air nailer, it REALLY wobbled from the recoil... 4, quick, bangs up there and I scrambled back down to the safety of the pallet and got-r-done... Joist is now nice and firm. Need to do the other one some other day.


ARE YOU OUTTA YER TEENY MIND? That ladder on a pallet thing looks like something I would do. Talk about dangerous! Wobbly, rickety, shifting under your weight. Been there, done that, and never again! Too unsteady, too dangerous, and it looks like a very long way down to the concrete! Just the pallet alone moves under foot too much on my forklift for my peace of mind.

You are scaring us with that set up.

Yup - "a little goofy" sums it up. Sorry, but we would miss you too much if you keep doing that!

The diagonal boards will be the mounting/supports for the heater.

Two or three and imagine it's winter. Then it ought to feel pretty good in there.

In the lower level of the house. It would just be ANOTHER thing in the way that I have to move around a hundred times until I get the ceiling in...
I've almost worn out the legs on the tall wooden ladder, dragging it around along with most everything else in there.

Too Many Projects Most of last week was very pleasant here, for cooler, less humid weather, BUT my wife works full time from home, so I managed to get a few things done in the shop the one day I didn't work for pay. She had Friday off, so we hit the insulation/girt work hard. Nice that the hot/humid weather came back for those 3 days. We were swimming for 8 hours a day in that oven of a shop. We got 28' of both sidewalls done to the point of tin, but that won't happen this year. WAY too much to do yet, to spend time on that. The ceiling tin will be at the store on Wednesday and I need to add 1 more ceiling joist for that and after mocking up the heater, I need to follow the path of the tubes with 2x6 between the joists to hang it on. We picked up the necessary material Saturday evening, so it's here and I just need to get off my butt and go put it up. After the West wall was done, we put the equipment back and I mounted the air hose reel up further, where it should be able to stay now. Also cleaned up the electrical connection for the compressor.

idrivejunk I did a couple of the same things. Mowed, drove rust off backup ride brakes. Noticed that a corner of the gutter which drips into a crack in the driveway next to the porch was still dripping two days after last rain. Knocked a half inch hole there, improvised a trough to redirect it a couple feet then placed rocks under the drip to diffuse and redirect that away from the driveway's edge. Wanted to go slap a tint scrap on the daily driver sunroof but that consumed way too much time so that and the back yard will have to wait. Two scorchers dead ahead. When I touched my door handle to move my car to mow, that reminded me of the sunroof. But I'm beat, and its seven on a work night. To heck with it.
