Hope that picture of the pipes in the ground wasn't the final. The ground gets cold in the winter time and it won't help your shop to be heating the ground. I used hot water when i lived in Indiana and the pipes runnin g to the house ran inside 12" diamater insulation around 4" drain line.

Or is that just the fuel supply?

Yeah the bony knees rebuild by Canadiab Surgeons LOL also the feed line to the shiop is gas line only. The Garage aka shop has its own water supply. The heating has been working very well. I also am just finishing insulation and soon drywall the entire insides (Ceiling drywall was done then i spent 2 days (no kidding ) fixing it. Anyhow been busy with different projects. Kinda bummed out todat tax time and I had to pay again Oh well.

MotorHomes 4 wheelers wheeklkbarrows you name it it was there OH also a whole bunch of ready mix conveyor trucks. Im glad Im at 78 percent completion. Its been a chore/ Anyhow the other pics are of the insiode big bear 4 wheeler (i never drive it much) is for dragging my drag bike around at the track and for driving to the snack bar for hot dogs. I have to say Thanx Tip Top for youre time in posting a few of my pictures. I appreciate it and youre time spent doing it for Me Thankyou Mike

Great looking shop Mike! The grass in the back yard will get over it :D but now you have a nice warm place to work on your projects on those cold winter days and nights. Congrats!!!

Yes its nice to have some extra room. I am still drywalling just finished fixing what the drywallers did. Took 2 days to remove replace panels in ceiling and do it properly. Insulation done vapour barrier was just put in with accoustic sealant and looks nice. Got about 6 sheets of drywall up and am cuttiing out all the outlet holes. I should of (or the electrician ) should of moved the outlets so the drywal was taken into account. The Hydronic heating system works gereat BUT now its spring and warm out LOL. Anyhow soon fishing season. Time to gfix that yamaha outboard. Later Mike

Nice job on the shop, cool toys. Not sure what Dave thinks, but looks just fine to me.
What are the do-dads for beside the radio?

Cheers, Bob

O Ya, where did you catch the skinny fish. ;)

06-01-2009, 11:50 PM
Yeah that fish wasnt the 32 pounder but i let it go. I only kept that skinny one because he hurt himself bad gorfing the spoon even though i had a large circle hook (single) on it. Too Bad. Those things beside my shortwave radio are milling machine stops i started making and then got sidetracked with other stuff. They are a way larger version of the swedish mill stop thats sold for a few hundred bucks. I made them all from A2 tool steel and ground all the parts. I still have to do the radiuses. BUT I finally did my final reactor delivery today WOO HOO now i can take a bit of time off finish my shop buy a new bikke drink beer and do some other jobs that are falling behind.
