« Part 4: A recoverable failure. Part 5 of Bass / Guitar Players pedalboard build series Part 6: Sticky gooey. »

Due to the heavy rains we have been experiencing lately it would appear that my shop humidity has gotten quite high, which seems to be causing my paint to not dry. It’s not just tacky still, it’s flat out wet it spots.

The weather is supposed to be drying up quickly though. I have lots of work, as in day job work sucking up my evenings this week, so I won’t be working in the shop again until at the soonest Thursday. So we are in a holding pattern…

Gotta love stagnation sometimes I guess.

One thing about weather, it changes!

Have not had that high a humidity level, but at times even with the ac going it’s 70 % humidity in the summer/spring.

Then I do paperwork.

Yeah, sad thing, it postponed completion of this project. I really should run the A.C. in dehumidifier mode, but I think my AC is dying. I have one of those portable jobs and the fan isn’t super happy any more…

The humidity drumped pretty well yesterday and the first coat on the top dried. So I was able to get in, flip it over, and coat the underside of it. At least all of it has one coat on it. Time to do it over again once it dries… I hate painting in humid weather!

Yeah, I need to figure out how to get to it first, but that is in the plan. Not sure how to disassemble the housing on this thing to get to the fan assembly. It looks like most likely a spun bearing. This is in a plastic housing. One of those cheaply built portable AC systems… Real pain in the back side…

Yep,

I often have to fix a tool to fix a tool? I now put it on my to do list for my spare time. LOL!
