Default -35c is it working in the shop weather

over the last couple of days I was doing the finishing touches on the td-6 known as Aggie. the windshield has been installed and the tail pole is on. in the morning i'll attach the cable which is used for easy recover in case he goes swimming. the ether hole in the air take makes the cat start a lot better too. spray ether in to and oil bath air cleaner loses it zip for some reason. of course the welding cables were a little short and I was not going outside to get the proper set to burn one rod. the old booster cables came in handy, lol

It was -29°C (-20°F) yesterday here, I'll agree too damn cold to be outside working.

yes even the dogs are stying in the shop by the wood stove. ususally you start working and they head in to their outside pen via the dog door-tunnel.

oh well it is winter time.

We had some -10 f nights here and that sure has been fun. It warmed up to 20f today and I worked outside for a bit this afternoon.

It’s nice to see your projects Joey. Sure do enjoy the old iron

I just got back from a spell in Alberta, we had a 5 day stretch where it never went above -30C. Needless to say no outdoor projects got done those days.

Good to see the website back up and going Joey!! Any cat trains planned for this winter?

greywynd -- yes i think we are back to having a canadian cold winter for a change. which is a cycle of life which the greenies have not figured out.

we are not sure what we are doing this winter, we are basing lots on the Hollywood Gods.
