Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking
Took half of the motor case to the welding shop to get two 1/4" NPT bungs TIG welded on - one on top for a fill plug and one on the bottom for a drain. Should have it back next week.
In the meantime, I used my free time this week to repair a "fallen angel". Someone knocked over a large-sized angel in a creche at church and broke it into a half dozen pieces. I brought her home to glue her back together and she fell off the counter and smashed into a bazillion more pieces! I almost threw it out but decided to see what I could do with it. Two tubes of epoxy and several internal bamboo struts later, she's back in the creche and you can't tell she was ever broken. Must have been divine intervention because I'm not used to projects coming together this well this fast! It kinda got me in the mood for Christmas.
