Default Happy Anniversary to me!

On the day that my marriage is legal to drink, my old High School machine shop teacher gave me a foundry and heat treat oven. it came from the school because it was not miosha compliant, and he got a newer foundry that I was taught on in high school.

So now I have another project. Need to build a building for the foundry. Guess will have to make it big enough for a blacksmith forge to.

Pics of the heat treat oven. Has a real old plug on the fan cord. I think the extra wire is for a ground? The fan does work when i plugged it in.Click image for larger version

I forgot about the "you suck" award. So, in my opinion, you definitely earned it. So, YOU SUCK!!!
