Weekend Rap

Yo yo
Ok, no!

I meant the other wrap!

Have put in some hours this weekend, irrespective of the heat. Not sure what it got to, but at one stage as the sun was rising and the hot air ripping through, I wasn’t sure if I was in Melbourne, Death Valley, or on Cremetoria!

Some of the things knocked off, or at least progressed over the weekend:

# Insulated PA doors (as previously mentioned)
# Sorted out the rubbish left after builders, after Jessica’s 7th birthday and the SawStop packaging
# Filled in the trenches left from the plumbing
# Tried to roll the trailer (and a few other things) over the ground, but got badly bogged in the soft sand that is the local ‘soil’ Going to take forever to get the yard back to a reasonable condition.
# Fixed up the boards laid so far on the mezzanine. As was (not unkindly) pointed out, it looked like the floor had been laid by an amateur. Now at least it looks like it has been laid by an amateur with a sledge-hammer! Still got a bit over 1/2 the mezzanine to go before I can start using it for storage
# Flattened the area behind the shed in preparation for the 2mx2m being relocated there
# Emptied the 2mx2m shed, moving the boxes into the workshop
# Relocated the 2mx2m shed (involved a significant degree of deconstruction to get it into location)

Think that is about it – been a pretty heavy weekend.

Started seeing some tools that haven’t seen the light of day for about a year.  Found the Tormek (finally!) and it looks still in good condition.  The various wheels have survived as well, which is good news.  The kitchen knives will be well-pleased.

Continue to find a few tools that are no longer required, so once I have a good lineup, they will be moved to new homes.

That’s about it – next will be establishing a floor in the ‘new’ shed so items can be moved in without risk to their long-term survivability.

There are other ex-demo tools also available, including some Centrotec bit sets – something I am somewhat interested in as well, particularly for my Ti15 (I’m finding using non Centrotec bits becoming very frustrating, as they don’t stay locked in the driver).
