Working on the Fab shop

I have spent the last 3 weekend getting ready for a new water line to the fab shop. My limit for digging is only a couple of hours. When you look at the size of the rocks you will understand why.

    Here in the Northeast you would need to go down below the frost line to about 48″ or there would be no water once it froze (and split the pipe/tube).
    I enjoy the slow but steady progress and with all of your machinery updates.
    Be well.

  • Gee Chuck, where are those illegal aliens when you need them?

    Where is the back hoe?

      One of the hoses went out on it and being that it is a ford I have to pull off the back end to get at the hoses. When it cools down I will be back at work on it. I made a number of special tools to see if I can remove the hoses with out the excessive amount of tear down.
