Weekend update

I am a little late posting this, just did not have time last week.

My friend Mac from Texas was up for about a week so a great deal got accomplished that needed to be dome. Mac is a great welder and fabricator and he was used and abused in that fashion. The first and most important task was the steel shop doors on shop 2. The ball bearing hinges has rusted solid and would no longer operate, in fact two of them had broken off the frame. So new hinges were welded in place.

And then because there was nothing else to do we disassembled the old lathe and put it in the truck for a scrap run.
