Well, I have three flood lights (but no bulbs yet) and one two-tube flourescent. Finally I have electricity! I have found that if I start working out there at about 10 in the morning, by 2 in the afternoon, I have to take a break to rest my back. Then after supper, I’m ready to get back to work. So far I have made a “scooter” to help me get all the heavy stuff out there. I’m going to tackle the drill press and maybe the lathe tonight.
How glorious it will be to see them actually in my brand new shop. I have the cyclone out there (in pieces) and Mike and I are going to put it up this weekend. The motor came without a cord, so I will have to purchase one. The electrician and I wanted to take a gander at the plug for this 230V monster, but alas, for a thousand bucks you get all but the plug!
There’s still some trouble with the final inspection. It appears that the city powers do not have a code for the sliding door which I have. Soooooo, we will have to remove the door and install an overhead garage type door to get the final inspection approval. However, I do not promise not to sneek my original door back on as soon as the inspector is gone! Anyway, that door and the trim are all that remains (and the inspection). I can’t put up any insulation or cover the walls until the inspection, but there is plenty to do just to move all the machinery into the shop. I’m taking it slowly, because I don’t want to strain or sprain any muscles, and that’s alright with me….......now that I’m finally in my shop! I’ll take some pics after I get kinda set up. It will be a while before I get all the furniture built.
