Went to Tifton to see Keith Rucker about a bandsaw and some fan motors and to look at his metal planer project.

Got a few extra things also.

Mics and gauges and a Square. A two speed bandsaw.

I know it looks like it's filling up but there's been so.e behind the scene stuff going on.

We cleaned out the maintnence shop at my day job and I got a few buckets of assorted hardware, a Niagra table top sheet metal brake model 3A, and a 350 amp 480 volt welder with what was thought to be major mouse damage.

Got the welder to the shop and opened it up and it might take four hours to go through and fix a few chewed wires. Iys a Red-D-Arc E300 3+2. No leads with it. My mill is also 480 and had planned to adda step.up transformer to run that and any other 480 volt equipment.

Also a Greymills Clean O Matic made its way inside rhe shop.

Yesterday I brought home a Kalamazoo p45 bandsaw and a Powermatic 143 wood and metal bandsaw besides the Starrett stuff.

Another distraction. These beams and 1/4" plate will become a welding table.

A good distraction I might add.

Lol! Funny you should say that....I called about scaffolding today, guy asked me if I wanted safety rail. “Nope, I’ll buy another section and use it as a rail if I need one.”

Variable speed drive I orderd off Banggood came in Thursday. It's 220 single phase in and 220 three phase out. Supposed to be good for 5 horsepower.

I got it so I could use either of my drill presses in the meantime with my temporary power setup.
