Holy moly that’s a lot of clamps! Almost looks like one of those tricks with two mirrors facing each other — the reflections keep repeating for ever.....

Somewhere between 175 and 200 clamps of various styles, sizes and makes. Many were left overs when my brother closed out his 3 hardware stores and some from factory close downs.

Ok, they say you can’t have too many clamps, which is what I say when the grandkids look up at the ceiling of my shop. But that’s just showing off. Well done.

They are coming today (office is 150 miles from the home shop) to pick up the burner housing, I made for a job in Vermont. I made the housing, the minions will install it and I suppose to direct them on burner start up over the phone, if necessary. The boiler is roughly 30 bhp or about 10gph of #2 oil or 1500 cuft/hr of methane

Still some what of a lull, but the company had decided to start working on the hand drawn wiring diagrams, for the boiler/burners, I did during the conversions. The CAD guy has returned from his semi-retirement/operation rehab stay, to now render the computer generated as built diagrams, to finish up the jobs. The guy is so smart, he is stupid, many a time I wanted to gut him like a salmon. The owner has compared our relationship to a lit match and a stick of dynamite, if in the same room long enough, something will happen.

example #1 - he wanted me to rewire a boiler, that had just been rewired, because he was extremely upset the wire numbers, did not follow in numerical order. I told him it was wired, and I was not going to change it for two reasons, it was wired to the factory numbering system and it was running perfectly.

example #2 - he truly is a gifted programmer, but can not help himself from trying to reinvent the wheel, on every job. He once did a wiring diagram, that he had another wire the burner to, once it started, it would not shut off, without shutting the power off, to the control cabinet. After about 2 days of dicking around, with no change. I had to go rip out about 75% of the wire and rewire it, so it actually worked. Since then I have to check all diagrams before anyone uses them, and check all as builds for errors or unauthorized changes.

Alas, work is work........it can’t all be easy.......
