Still packing and hauling stuff to the new shop.
Spent today sorting and packing up hand tools.
Most of the big pieces are all gone, except the steel
benches and the steel sheets and pieces for fabricating.
The crane's all down and loaded. The trucks are all moved.
Time to re-organize and decide what goes where in the new space.
I'm really looking forward to it. This should be a more permanent
arrangement than we had, so we are planning to really set up a
nice, workable shop, rather than treating it as a temporary area,
like we have been doing.
I've been thinking about my project list and the order for completion.
The B-67 is first, then I'm thinking about my little Ford Golden Jubilee tractor,
which shouldn't need too much except cosmetics. Then probably the R-600, just
because it only needs some body work. Along with those things, I need to get my
little lowboy trailer cleaned up and painted, and new tires installed.
That pretty much accounts for the next year. Then we'll see what comes next.
Probably the H-63. I just today was given a running END-673 which gives me
more replacement options for the bad engine in that truck.
I can only concentrate on one project at a time, but it's good to look ahead
to gather the pieces required for the next project.
Speaking of tires - Tom (Other Dog), have you used any of the take-off tires
from your company before?
I'm thinking that's a great idea for the R-600. It needs to switch to tubeless radials
and won't get any real miles. It's not a show truck so new rubber isn't really
necessary. Thought I'd ask around up here and see what I can scrounge up.
