I shut off the water to the shop this morning with the quarter turn valve by the door due to the toilet constantly running. Didn't want Kathy's water bill to shoot-up (not to mention the risk of me flooding it...again ). I think the toilet needs a new fill valve again.

No prob. I just replaced one at my house and figured I'd look at it. The float bowl doesn't stop the flow of water even in its top position and the pressure is not as high as it should be. Time for a new one.

Btw, your trailer looks ginormous in the shop haha. Good thing BK's truck is on dollies.

I was over there bc I'm finally trying to sell those Silverado spindles my dad didn't want, so those are out of the shop now along with two of my little jackstands. I'll update the sheet.

been learning how to TIG aluminum, with clean metal it's pretty easy, definitely fun.

The bottom bead is a 90 junction, the other two were messing around on flat trying to figure out wtf was wrong at first. Turns out I had the wrong filler rod (top bead)

Ah the weave.. is that the alternating 2 rows of bead one? I'll have to play with that.

I have not used a spool gun, are u referring to MIG? Only get one TIG welder right now.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the "weave" welding that I've seen looks like tac welding in a diagonal fashion? There doesn't seem to be much puddle movement.

There's puddle movement:

Ya Billy, MIG aluminum spool gun. It's intense when u do it or at least I thought it was. Have to move fast.

ok pics from computer this time.. i think the hardest part of the weave is to follow the contour of the seam when you are trying to focus on making sweet fish scales. it was also weird bcuz i went from single bead to the weave only on the wider parts.

The ladder is off the shelf, our intern started the base to mount the ladder and I finished it up and added the standoff at the waterline to the ladder.
