Today was a long day in both garages. My heating palette arrived, all 6 tones of them. In the big garage i had to wheel them in with a wheelbarrow and rearrange them. I wasn't tired it went quickly, the other garage we managed to unload the 3 tones directly over the inspection pit, and left them over night. I wanted to see if it will hold up also i was tired and my injured back said no. So early before work i started rearranging them, i have to stack them in one row to have enough space in the garage. Just as was finishing the second palette the end toward my machine shop collapsed, i had to cut up one of the pallet and make a brace. With it in places i stack the pallets and left for work i still have more then half a tone to go it will be tight.

What Tennessee Ernie Ford said, "Sixteen ton, and what do you get, another day older, and deeper in debt". Pellet stoves are are pretty good heat. I used to sell and install them, and spent a lot of time servicing those installed by others. Set up right they are pretty dependable, and like everything some are better than others. looks like you won't freeze this winter. Cheers, Mike

I spent the afternoon doing some hard turning. The centring scope I got from eBay had a MT4 arbor, which wouldn’t fit the mill - so after removing it from the scope, I dialled it in true in my 4 jaw on the lathe and got to work. Carbide tool, took it slow and took it from the original MT4 down to a straight 3/4” shank to be used with MY 3/4” R8 collet.

A friend of mine decides he needs a Niva in his life. He search for a good one for couple of months and finally found this one. Almost bought it on the spot but the seller seam a bit quick, so he told him let take it to my friends house for him to see it. He agreed and they come when i opened the small garage and he seen the inspection pit he become in a big hurry. I ignored him and inspected it, wow it has lots of things wrong. It isn't charging the battery, the rear diff is very loose and is leaking, the pinion bearing is on its way out, one of the rear brake drum is cracked in half, the rear drive shaft is bent and dented, catalytic converter is missing, some one welded in a resonator in its place, gearbox is leaking on both ends, engine mount is missing its washer and nut, causing the other mount to get ripped. He was representing it as a low mileage perfect shape niva, i showed my friend all the defects to say he was upset is an understatement, in fact he grabbed the seller by the neck, throw him in the passenger seat and they took off. I hate situations like this, car flippers that sell bad vehicles and take advantage of normal people. My friend is a head taller than me, heavy as me and all muscle and has a bit of a temper, guy selling that niva mess with the wrong guy.
