        Hi Brian, I had both eyes done(at same time) 2 years ago, 15 minute operation. It's worth it, the improvement in my vision is astounding, best vision I've had my whole life. I do wear bifocals, can't see up close without them.

          Yeah. The way you applied it is the way it is designed to be done. JR

          • Some more work on the Onan CCK, and a parts run, because the local Cummins (Onan) dealer had every part that was needed in stock.

            Short block (stripped down engine) on the sump.



            View os the piston, valves are out for grinding and guide replacement.



            Carbon in the head. There was a tin on the piston and in the valve area of the block, heads are relatively clean. 25 years of running off and on for remote power at my buddy's off-grid home. Most of his power is solar, but genset got used for construction, emergency charging, and so forth.



            Generator armature. needs bearing changed, and a spot of missing insulation got a couple coats of glyptal. 3 phase delta output, plus 12V DC. Also used as the starter, feeding DC to the armature.

            • Today, (well actually Wednesday), we started working on the porch roof of the 713 house where I live. The original porch had been extended by about 4 feet and covered with a flat roof that has been leaking for quite a while, in spite of several attempts at sealing it with roofing felt, shingles, rubber sheet, and roofing cement.




              My first idea was to extend a wider sloped section over the existing original roof and the flat section:


              But it looks like it will be better to dismantle and move the right side sloped section and add to the center part, which will give a more balanced appearance:


              Looks like it will be a bigger job than originally thought, and rather challenging, but probably will look much better and will last until the entire roof needs to be replaced. That was last done 20-25 years ago, so it's almost time to give that some serious consideration. But if it ain't broke, why fix it?

                    thank you Willy, it's one of the best parts of the job! I think that they're starting to realise that this is just the beginning though..

                        A second congrats from me. I do however wonder at the collision of Brit-speak and Texas-speak. How does that work, I wonder?

                        • Today I removed the clutch bearing from a friend's air conditioning compressor in his Mercedes.

                          Yesterday I bought a new monitor for my computer. I went from an old 15" CRT to a 27" flat screen. I wouldn't have upgraded but I had a power outage awhile back and when the power came on again all the red things started to look very orange and the other colours were all off too. What an improvement! Of course while I was changing things over I managed to accidentally shut off my power bar so went to the trouble of digging out my old Radio Shack VOM and finally found the problem. I initially though my ~10 year old computer had totally died from all the handling it experienced while I changed over. Since my TV set screwed up earlier this year and my monitor screwed up, I suspected that the computer was the final thing to go wrong, the old “the rule of three” superstition, eh? Clumsy me also managed to break the little adapter that goes from a USB plug on my mouse to a round pin plug in the computer case so that was officially the third thing. A new one won't come in for at least two weeks so in the meantime I went digging and found a NOS mouse that was a direct plug in so a little luck there.

                          • Did this a while ago. Made a camber caster gauge. There is a commercial one available but decided to make one.
