    We kinda got off the path a little bit. Did you get it solved?

    I have my service panel open & ready to drill to the basement. Cleaned off a spot on the wall on the garage to drill through the concrete.
    I have my wire ready . Tools all out . Tomorrow I need to check & measure so I don't drill into my furnace or in wires dropping down.
    Need to then see what all I can find here or what I need to go buy. ( it's all your fault lol )
    Your thread got me thinking I should get mine done here too.

    Some days all I need is a push to get at some of this stuff.
    I get way to distracted working on guns & restoring antiques.
    My compressor isn't near as nice as yours but for around the house it will do me just fine ( Kobalt 60gal )
    Still sitting on the pallet. ( ya can't rush into things ! )

    I was working on the 220 to my garage today & must have missed something here.

    You didn't miss anything lol. There are a few people here who are very proficient at derailing threads. Usually it is Zorba and myself talking about beautiful dresses or shoes etc. He makes me so proud :)

    I know nothing of dresses or shoes but if I ever need advice there I'll contact you.
    ( I'm single so that will probably never happen )

    Even though I am trading in my heels and dresses for guns, I would be more than happy to help lol.

    I used to sneak out in the woods when I was a little girl. Never found myself between a buck and a doe mid rut though lol.

    At the first forum I was in I was yelled at for being off topic......... (SIGgal made me do it ! ) lol
    They said one more time & I would get banned.......So here I am in a new forum doing it again !
    They didn't ban me but I left on my own.
  • SIGgalSIGgal Senior Member Posts: 1,660 Senior Member

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Was just thinking .........I don't have a man cave so to speak .......my whole house is a man cave !
    Harley pinball in the living room , reloading room , office with guns in , juke boxes sprinkled around the house , kitchen table / work bench ,
    Garage full of tools ( haven't parked a car in there in 30 years ) laundry room with a drill press in it,basement with a anvil & full work benches.
    Yep I have a MAN HOUSE ! ( I need a bigger house )

    Damn fine compressor. Sigh....I have to settle for the $130 4 gallon type unfortunately, but then again, my needs are not as large. Bad thing about the cheap ones is if you run air-powered tools you have to listen to the compressor run constantly to keep up with the air draw on it.

    I have a 60 at my farm garage & plan to add 2- 20 gal to it.
    That way I have 100 gal plus cool air for painting & to run my media blast cabinet longer.
    You could add to yours too it would get you more run time.

    Managed to get the wire strung through the cement wall all the way to the panel .
    Tomorrow need to make a list of things I have but can't find to go buy.
    The service call took way longer than expected so the todo list will have to carry over until tomorrow.

    Sounds like success on the horizon!

    Getting close but a ways off yet..............It's all your fault ! :rotflmao:

    Did manage to pick up supply s .I went with a 50amp breaker because I plan to run my mig welder on that same circuit
    It will make my little garage shop a lot nicer to do some work in.
    So if I get this laid out right the wall should have compressor ,polish wheels , mig welder & plasma cutter ,cut off bad saw
    & batt. charger on. Going to add a couple extra outlets for grinders too. When I built this place I didn't think I would be here this long . My bigger shop at my land filled up to fast so now I need to put up a 60x100 with 17' sidewalls only thing stopping me is money there. I already have enough toys to fill 1/2 that one too.

    If all goes right I should have 220 in by sun down today !

    50A is what I went with so I could run my welder off it as well.

    Looks good, but I'd lose the valve in the end. No point in it being there, just throw a plug in it and remove it when you drain. You want the most flow you can get empty the water.

    Probably will disappear, just stuck it on there to keep bugs and such out but I guess 175 psi would dispatch them pretty good.
