    • made a couple more interior LED lights for my car - a passenger puddle light and foot well light. The foot well light will have an LED swap to a lower colour temp (currently 4000K) to match the rest, but it'll do for now. They'll come in handy now the nights are drawing in.

      • Today I realigned the jack shaft on my 9" SB; it had started to throw the flat belt from the jack shaft to the spindle in the highest speed. While I was at it, I took the opportunity to do a little cleaning up as well.

        • I put the new legend plate on my Turnmaster. The old one was a decal, and was semi destroyed when we replaced the damaged electrical cabinet.

          • Today I cleaned out the eavestroughs on both my house and garage. I hate that job. I need to make up some sorta long reach wand that will attach to my pressure washer so I don't have to fool around with ladders.

            • Pressure washer... Borrowed my brother inlaws pressure washer the other day. Engine was old and ratty, couldn't get it started, so bought a new 6.5HP from Harbor Freight as a surprise. New problem, couldn't remove the pump from the old engine, ended up cracking the casting of the pump mount. The hardened steel coupler is rust solid to the old engine. So now I ordered a new pump to go with the new engine, he is basically getting back a new pressure washer that does 3200 PSI instead of the 2500. Maybe I'll ask him if he would like to sell me his pressure washer for $50?

                Did that. 20' of PVC and some fittings. We have 100 psi water so it works well.

                  • Installed this ceiling fan i've been working on for a while. Rotor diameter is about 1500 mm, or a bit shy of 5 feet. It feels great to see it. I have been planning this for over twenty-five years.Click image for larger version

                              With a little mod, you could have made it with the right side up. A hollow tube and bearing down the center of the rotor for the power cable could do the trick.​
