MARTINSR I got out there today and installed my outlet for my welder. It's not wired in as I am waiting for my new circuit breaker but it's ready for that.

Last night my wife and I went for a LONG walk, too long, we were about a mile from the house and I sat her down and went the rest of the way and got the car to go back for her. Today, I am BEAT. And yeah I painted it red. LOL

LOLOL, actually I used the Flux core to weld that mail box stand. I had to try it, never have in my life. So I gave it a try, it welds, ok, got gas now and the wire changed.


And yes I swapped the ground over for the non flux wire.

Too Many Projects We'll have to cut you some slack, being you are distracted with your topless project...

Still no automotive work around here. Still working on the shop modifications and today, we are going to pick up 2 white pines at a nursery. The front yard is too bare for us, so need to "populate" it...

That is one sad situation.

I got to spend a few hours in the shop today. I had ordered all stainless hardware for the convertible top mechanism but had to get creative to make it all what I needed. Lots of specialty hardware in the automotive world.

John



I sure am glad I took a bunch of pictures before I disassembled them.



One down.

Tomorrow, tomorrow I will have it bolted in! No more clamping stuff with vice grips to the bench when I want to cut them. LOL

Funny, it's a LOT bigger than I remember! When I opened the box I thought he sent me some other vice! Then I put it up on the bench holes lined up, I then put my aluminum protectors on it, wham, they were right at home there. Yep it's my old vice!


Brian
Now I know what to do with the piece of aluminum channel I have laying around. Wrapping the vise jaws with masking tape or rags doesn't work all that well. BTW FWIW , I gave up my vices years ago, when I got saved. What you have bolted to your bench is a vise, I would hope you have a minimum of vices.
