Getting your locks adjusted may take some time and you'll need to be able to hear them snap into place. The installer who moved the 1 to the back sets the 2 locks at the rear, from the control, to snap simultaneously and the lock at the control right after and finally, the other side of the rack from the control right after that. He explains, that in that order, you actually hear, and know, that they are all locked. The minute difference in height from the back 2 to the last front is so negligible as to not be an issue.
Yep, this one is a heavy duty commercial unit. 12K capacity, with two 6K rolling Jacks. Should be good to go once I get it adjusted properly. Good idea on adjusting the locks. Makes sense to me, being able to hear all of them click. The 2-post we set up in dad's shop lock sequence depends on how the car is centered. I will eventually end up with another lift, probably one of the hobby parking lifts, but it will depend on what I find used. Frugal is as frugal does, yes?

Remember, this is aimed at the owner, Matt, not you.
Your shop job is good. The gold and yellow just don't go together.

Too Many Projects That scheme looks a LOT better than that stripe he was planning and yellow bumpers, instead of gold.
Paint it !!

idrivejunk Show us a face shield, Pugsy.

Halfmasks are more kind to a face than dust masks.

Another edit request in pic. Y'all had already been asleep an hour or two before I got to start on it last night. Putting yellow where gold was is tough and I knew the idea would flop but he wanted to see it.

Too Many Projects I just looked at the weather forecast. Seems the system that was going to bring rain this morning has slowed down and is now coming in late afternoon/evening. Guess I get to dig up more power cable this morning...

Wife's tires will wait till tomorrow. Not that she needs them anyway. Her car has left the garage once in the last 17 days.

Good that you are getting around and looking forward to cutting season..

Thanks for the reminder, I need to order new blades for the tractor I bought with this house. I had high lift, shredder blades on my old Toro and they did a good job of that, which helps eliminate windrows, when I couldn't get the grass cut in a timely manner. I looked those up for the JD last fall, but never followed thru. Probably quicker to just look them up again, as to find my notes in this mess...

Thanks.


We have 3 in the shop and myself and a couple gals in the (small) office. Kinda close quarters for my liking at this time. I wear a 3M respirator () as I just can't take them paper things. Can't breathe.

I went out to the garage to tap a tap for about an hour. That's all I could do.

Yep, summer tires. Might be a couple weeks before I put them on yet...
Last year, we got 14 INCHES of snow in the middle of April...
And then it monsooned for the entire next day and the water couldn't drain thru the snow fast enough and I had major flooding of the driveways and yard at the old place. Don't see that happening with the new place. The yard is much flatter...

Too Many Projects I got done with the truck about 11 and went in to make a few phone calls and have lunch. After that I decided to start recovering the power cable from the hot tub, to run out to the new shed. About 15 feet was stapled under the deck and that was easy enough. The other 30-40 ft is buried under the landscape rock and fabric. I started at the drop tube from the deck into the ground and was rewarded with the improper bury depth of 10". Guess they didn't feel like following code. Oh well, it made my job a little easier. I raked the rock back to expose the fabric and also discovered that the landscaping had been there when they buried the cable. They also, screwed all that up and made a LOT more work for me to repair all the uneven ground they had left, and fix the fabric they cut and tore out. There must have been shrubs planted along that area at one time too and they just filled the holes left after removing them with rock. It was very uneven and poorly done. Silly me had to fix it all the proper way and that took more time than digging the danged cable up. After 5 hours, I got about half way to the shop, where the power comes out of. Plenty more aggravation left for another day. Predicted to rain off and on again for the next 3 days, so tomorrow will be getting the wife's new summer tires on her wheels and balanced.
