    I vaguely remember there's an A10 in it. :lol: I'm not here for the hardware parades.

    Don't die of shock. I have a 2nd update for the month. It's kinda handy when the temperature drops below the working temperature of pvc glue. I got time off thanks to a broken water main on the current vacancy and a cold snap.

    -Have a commemorative photo celebrating the half-cleaning of the garage workbench. I know. It amazed me too.
    [​IMG]
    -I was also filing on that bit of lawnmower engine block. I cut a tab for one end, and drilled screw holes in the other.
    [​IMG]
    -Now I just need a hole. I added some plexi rod to the top of the fanguard where there was a gap.
    [​IMG]
    -Perfect! Now I can just slide the guts in, and plug in the case components.
    [​IMG]
    -Holy cow! look at all that wasted space.
    [​IMG]
    -Oh, dear... That's some nasty pressure cracking. Maybe 4 O-rings was too many. It's only stressed on the decorative layer, though.
    [​IMG]
    -I still had some liquid nail, so I used that for the access panel mount. The delays haven't been because of a lack of free glue. -No, really! :worried:
    [​IMG]
    -I can shape the finned part now. I dug the bench sander out and flattened the sawed bits.
    [​IMG]
    -I filed out the bolt areas and other stuff that filled the fins in.
    [​IMG]
    -Epoxying this was tricky. To keep it in place I masked off the front, applied the epoxy, and while holding it in place hot glued the front. After that cooled I could let go and let it set overnight.
    [​IMG]
    -What's next? I dunno. here's half of an old frying pan though.
    Thanks again to my sponsors:

    You're the man with a plan for the pan. Is that what you're saying, mate?

    No he's say he's the man with pans. Plans do not factor into this.

    Ooof. punning. :p
    The plan is to destroy their ability to be used as junk containers. This household has a horrible tendency to fill any object that can hold stuff.
    -Of course, there's other problems too. We inherited two NEW vacuum cleaners this month, bringing the total up to 9, (that I know of. :worried:)
