Nice pichures Cutter. Broccoli's i-d-ah has one flaw; lookin at them clamps creates more i-d-ah's in yer head. NOT GOOD! Hide 'em. You'll give thansk when I deliver yer skyhook.

btw, last week fell apart on me and I didn't get to visit with the drayage people.

Would not. Not with those crappy old pickets on there. Now it might look better if I had a wife telling me what to think but as the primer fades, it will blend with the wood & all of it will look nice & old. You know - vintage.

With a little effort, you could have worked rustic and patina into that.

Franz, I admit that I'm in over my head dealing with this guy and with the whole issue of 3phase. But Warren said they would have to install 2 240 volt transformers on the pole just outside my fence. I told him you said something about an available mini substation & I could see that that gave him a pause, but he chuckled & said something about "No, you don't need to go quite that far." If I understood him correctly, that is 480 volts runnung down the alley.
I did leave the options open & he said to call if he could be any help.
By the way, what is a mini-substation?

From there, I dropped by Southwestern Electric supply to price out the service equipment. The city &/or the provider are now requiring a disconnect mounted with the meter base and the meter base must also have a built-in bypass. Then the indoor breaker box has to have a main breaker in either 200 amp single phase or 100 amp 3phase. This starts getting pricey in a hurry for either service. For single phase, 200 amps I am looking at about $550, including tax & for 3phase about $925 plus the cost of the transformers.
Any advice about saving money would be most welcome, from any of you. At the rate this is going, I may be looking at going with a 100 amp service just to get out of this alive.
Wish I knew you back ten, and what a aprope time to put the shop build back on( bet you a coffee or six pack when you saw aprope,you said holy jumpin tying machins Batman) I have 3 220 3 phase main disconects,,in stock from the old building, my ex partner in the Building ONLY!!!!! ordered them because HIS electrican friend said we need them ,Notheast utilities will be out this week on my shop,,,built this entire house, and they were the only people I had trouble with,,ask Franz about there reputation Thanks for the great timing).Jack

Jake, Im in the process of putting up my own shop, and Money will be tight, But I worked in a dungen for 28 years,,and have heard alot of good thing about the 2 part epoxy,,and have used it many times on tanks that Ive built,

I can see it in my mind, Cutter standing by a table with a stack of warm towels and supplys, in a white jacket, next to a tin plate full of coins.
Who knows, he may even work his way up to a coast to coast chain of pay toilets. Find a need and fill it, the key to success in American business.
Is that the Oh Boy(showing my age) Here I sit Broken harted, Paid a dime and only farted??????????
Remind me to tell you the Job we had to do at the J.C. Pennys store In the Meriden Square,When they were still there,,I think Its a Lord and Taylor., or Filenes Now,,Its a Pisser, Pun Intended,,It was a mens room Job,,, One of the ones you never forget,,Jack

Don't forget, before you close the trench to install the RG59 for the cable TV to the shop, and the spare for the CCTV security camera. Hell, while yer at it, you might oughta add a 2" conduit for stuff you'll want out there in the future.
