    Cool! That compressor should be easy to fix, and U.S. made means parts should be readily available! Now you can use it to blow metal chips off mill and lathe, and into your eyes! :smiley:

    I've been getting this error message all day on the forum.
    "There was an error performing your request. Please try again."
    Batten down the hatches. Since yesterday's IT Forum Maintenance, this message has been appearing. There's a ghost in the machine...............................

    Edit to add:
    I'm also getting this stupid message that won't let me post to a thread:

    Your comment will appear after it is approved.

    Looks like yesterday's Forum Maintenance is today's poop stick in the punch bowl.

    Picked up a WELL used compressor today. It's been acting sketchy. Likely a bad pressure switch. But, it's 8 years old. And has been run HARD. Like  some days just Minutes between cycles, if not just running solid for days. Anyway, since we don't fix things only replace them.....someone's got a "new" 2 hp 26 gallon made in the USA compressor.  
    And "only " 2 HP, that's 2 actual HP. Not like the ones at Walmart claiming 5 HP. Maybe they would make 5 HP, ILSI. (If Lightning Strikes It)

    More painting. Have I mentioned recently that I detest painting? Fortunately, not a lot of it, just the sheetrock on the inside where the two doors used to be.

    I had an interesting day today. I had to hand deliver a Glock to another shop because it was an out of state transfer and I’m not too far from Indiana (where it was going). Long story behind that, but anyhow it turned out that the receiving FFL was a type 7 manufacturer dealing in NFA items. The guy didn’t have a machine one in his shop but assembles NFA items from existing parts and does suppressor transfers/sales. I got to hold a full auto machine gun that was a pre ban (not sure what it was). Also learned that the only way you can make a full auto from scratch as a manufacturer is if it’s to be sold to law enforcement for “demonstration purposes”. The taxing, licensing and paperwork was a whole other ballgame. Was interesting to learn some new laws and I also found out that the ATF works only by intent. The rumor of guys getting hammered for a semi auto malfunctioning and running FA is false unless they tampered with it to make it FA or they left it “broken” and kept using it on purpose.

    Started cleaning out the shop/ shed today. I've come to the conclusion that I can throw nothing away. Even a 10 inch piece of 2x4 or 8 inches of metal can be used in the future. Right??

    Messed around this afternoon and decided to take apart some pieces of an old disc harrow that were in the way. Got the blades off pretty easy; the nuts holding the discs and spools onto the axle disintegrated when I put a wrench to them. The discs looked odd so I did a little quick 'field test. They have a parabolic curve. Those would make some interesting .22 rimfire targets; if you had the cupped side toward you they'd send the bullets back! :D

    It all can be used at some point. Problem comes with a place to put it until then .
    Next problem is finding it again .  ( did I mention that I am a pack rat ? )

    I always thought they should make one with two or three skinny cylinders you could hang on the wall to save floor space.

    Sorta like this but more bigger................ (hang tanks vertical for drains)

    By adding tanks you will keep your air dryer & that helps a lot with no water in tools or paint guns.

    Yard finally dried out from the last bout of rain (2 1/2") so I mowed it. Then I went back over it and mulched it (discharge chute block in place). It's been REALLY windy all day, but it finally warmed up. I'll be in the shop the next three days frantically doing work before the next cold front comes roaring in like a banshee on Sunday.

    If the danged weather doesn't start cooperating, not much for the Shoot! It's supposed to be in the mid to high 50s tomorrow; it was 82° today. I've decided Mother Nature is a crack head!  I'm going to make a stab at those bushings tomorrow, and start on whittling out the action for the .22 inline muzzleloader. Brass is going to be right pretty for both, I think. I got the main dimensions of the action doped out and can get that part done. The rest is gonna be a lot of sneaking up on the parts and modification of some on hand parts to 'make do'. I can 'see in my head' what has to be done for modifying parts; I just have to translate that to the metal.

    Things being the way they are weather wise, I guess that .22 muzzleloader may be it, and maybe not even it if the weather doesn't get its act together. At least I've got plenty of tannerite fixins, and I'll be bringing a couple of rifles that are oddballs.

    Put on a coat and quit being a baby! You got work to do. 😬
    Ive started on the MUCH improved trigger hanger deal. Grizzly was out of 1/8 reamers, and I need one NOW.  So, looks like I'll be making a D bit reamer. Need the hole tight as possible on the pin. Don't need no weeble wobble action. 
    Pulled the spindle on my mower apart last night. Got the bearing today. Wasn't gonna mess with it tonight, as it's a 10 minute job to put it back together. But....the idler pulley is hoopajooped. Not sure W tf is up with that. So since that may take some doing, the widow fleecing machine gets moved up to the front of the line. Hopefully it's an easy fix.

    When the sun has been shining, as in NOT RAINING, the wind has been in the mid 20 mph to 35 mph range. .22 rimfires don't do well in a swirling wind. So, no, I ain't shot it any more. :smiley: I did mow the yard today. First chance that it wasn't raining, and a BIG puddle in the yard.

    I DO NOT, AND WILL NOT, work around a lathe or milling machine while wearing a coat. I have seen the results of that, and of a shirt sleeve getting caught on the rotating parts. Having an arm broken in multiple pieces and fingers missing isn't something I'm willing to chance. Thumbs down hand animated emoticon


    YOU are most welcome to tempt fate, but I'm still in possession of all my bits I was born with, and don't intend to lose them this late in the game! My .22 inline muzzleloader will go together pretty fast. Biggest job will be the stock work, and I got that covered with ball end mills for action and barrel. I'm still dinking around with the trigger to use.

    Yea, I'm quite sure. Its a Microsoft product, after all. I know next to nothing about it, so kinda blunder through it on the extremely rare occasions I have to use it (read: manipulate somebody else's data).
