UPDATE!!!
All the wiring is done ( except for hooking my lights to the breakers, left them on plugs so I can still have lights). The 'lectric man should come this afternoon and "hook me up" I'm ready!!

Everything in conduit! With switches, too. I bet there's not a porcelain socket with a pull-chain
in the building. Good job, George. Looks like its about time to start enjoying the results.

Amazing! I remember when you were putting up the trusses in the wind!

Nope, no pull chains. Used what I had, What I was given, And what I found. Then I bought enough stuff to fill in between. Most of the wire and some of the boxes and conduit were left overs that a friend gave me to get it out of his way. The big sodium halide light in the center was also a gift.
Started last night on a few odds and ends.Put some scrap purlin pieces behind the plugs and swithches that weren't on the posts. Tonite I'm going to build something to keep the chain from jumping off the roller on the big door.

Next step is to try to figure out where all the permenantly mounted stuff will go and to start moving in my "stuff" and sorting thru it.

I still have nightmares about that myself.

No that's my nephew the electrician helping me wire up the breaker boxes.

I got the frame cut out for my back door. I happened up on a pair of rollers and the rails with one hanger ( guess I'll have to break down and buy some more hangers) Hope to have it sliding this weekend and then I'll start on my layout table. Buddy gave me a full 4x8 sheet of 3/4" plate that "was just in his way". So I did the neighborly thing and moved it. Also got about 1000 lbs of scrap plate anywhere from 4x4 down to 2"x8'. pita to load and unload but I'm not complaining too much.

Almost forgot, picked up a brand new IM210 ($900.00) Didn't know how bad the little HH135 welded until I plug this thing in. It works great.

spent all day Sunday framing up my back sliding door and then started on my welding layout table. Going this afternoon and (dirty word) "buy some more hangers for the rail of the door. Thought I had some but could only find one.
Going to add a couple of cross members to the top frame and use 2.5" pipe as supports at the bottom of the legs and probably a expanded metal shelf and hangers for tools and clamps.

Here's a few pics.
