Got the Nav lights mounted on the hand rails. Mounted the Tv mounted for Movie night with the wife but the kids were enjoying some cartoons in the shop. we had like 5-6 inches of snow and riding in the gator but that damn wind was so cold the wife suggested cardboard doors since the gator does have heat. and they weren't $3k (John Deere's prices)

I have to agree with Brian, you likely were still heating the slab the whole time,
it can take a week to heat everything up.

But also most of the guys around me who have the floor heat never get to
loving it. It is expensive. The only guy I know who likes it uses waste oil to
heat it. Free fuel it is worth it and if he runs low on fuel he get #2 ag diesel
as a back up.

Also you might have mentioned it I hope you fill the lines with a glycol mix,
I did have a friend who went cheap and just filled it with water. It froze one
night during a cold snap and he lost half his floor heat. He sold off his boiler,
blew the lines out and scrapped the whole idea and put in radiant heater on
the ceiling. He was much happier with the ceiling heat.

I got the navigational lights wired up and working. I also pulled da 100amp service panel to the other side of the shop so it would be easier to supply that side of the shop with power. Also added power to another flood light between the shop doors outside.

Here is another pic of the nav lights.
I have been wanting a newer lathe similar to the one I use at work. Also one that was tighter and I could use to cut threads with. Not to mention having a independent 4 jaw chuck so out with the summit lathe and in with the jet. Shelby autographed the olde one when is was against the shop wall I found this signature after I moved it.

I like the floor heat I don't like the power company
It was more of a test than anything the water heater just could not get warm enough to cycle on and off I think i ran it for like 4or 5 days when it was extremely cold. Mine is not filled with nothing but water for now. When I put it in full service it will be filled with Glycol.
Radiant heat is another thought i have thought about but unsure about placement. I am leaning towards forced heat to go in combination with the floor heat.

That summit lathe is close to what I learned on when I started my machining career 6 years ago. My daily lathe is a 2015 summit lathe.

Did yours have a large 4” thru bore? And I assume it is already sold and down the road?

It came from a transmission shop they used it to cut open Torque converters. But no mine had like a 2.5-3" bore and yes its gone. I told my buddy I was going to get me a newer lathe and he asked what I was going to do with that one. I said sell it. So he said he would take it. It was sold before I bought the Jet.



The new lathe came with almost everything Except a bigger quick change tool post. So I machine my old one to fit the new one. Then got it all setup in its new home.
