It’s not a massive @fireballtool vise, but I was inspired by @abom79 to use my little Logan shaper to square up a piece of aluminum. My Hobart 175 welder has been giving me fits and I think it’s the gun connector. No longer available so I have to make my own.
Thanks, @supercleanteam, this will come in handy. Appreciate the support!
This is what your welder looks like when it’s naked.
First time attending Cabin Fever Expo. Quite the event.
Super excited to find this Union Tool Chest Works tool box on Facebook. Unfortunately, it is missing the front cover and needs a lot of TLC. I hope to have a new front cover made, but finding a lock for it might be difficult to impossible. Once I clean it up, I’ll decide if it needs to be refinished completely or only some new wax. I did some research and am confident this was made between 1916 and 1918!
Did a little machining for a friend. He has an AXA tool post and the tool holders are about .100” too tall.
They must have sent @abom79’s shipping apes up to Ohio. Getting ready to install the condenser for the heat pump and noticed some damage to the unit. Appears superficial, but could be worse. I reached out to @mrcoolcomfort and they immediately started the ball rolling to get a new unit out to me. Should be here on Friday. Excellent customer service! Hoping to have the install wrapped up this weekend.
The shop is going to be a lot cooler this next summer. And maybe a bit warmer this winter. Taking advantage of the @menardshomeimprovement 12% rebate!
I made a mess!
I feel cheated. This is not a sandwich. 😂
