    THAT OLD GANG 'O MINE

  • #2
    Those wood floors were probably a lot easier on the legs than cement. I am considering puting down a wooden sub floor in my shop.

      George, get a couple of these good rubber mats to put in front of the lathe or other places where you stand alot. They do make a big difference, and are easier to keep clean than wood.

          Yeah, and imagine a guy with a length of bar stock over his shoulder, someone yells "Hey, Bo!". He turns and the bar stock hits the wires... ZZZZAAAPPPP. Dead simple.

            That wiring is referred to as "knob and tube". A porcelain tube is used if going thru a stud. They are braided wire not bare. Many old homes still use it. My parents home was built in 1919 and still has some of that wiring. As long as it is not exposed to sun light it remains plyable.
