A weekend of various tasks

SM2XJP gave me a ride down from the work QTH last Friday since I had gotten my new Miller MIG welder that I just bought. It is nice to have a MIG welder since it saves a lot of time compared to welding with stick. This is also a 240A welder so I can weld pretty thick material with it.

I did some welding to test the new welder out and modified a couple of tables I had gotten previously from work. I got some help as well from SM2XJP with the paneling on the house which we removed and then it was the task of battling the horrible insulation material. I can only say my condolences to the people who had to work with this crap some 50 years ago. If you have not dealt with it, then its very hard to explain how horrible it is. Each of these pieces of insulation is cut on the bottom and top so you have fibers of glass pouring out of it and it does fly everywhere and lands all over you. But now finally the last piece of it is down from the house! Now we just need to get rid of it…which means transporting it to the local dump.

Tomorrow I am heading down to the radio QTH again and will spend over a week there, so I expect to get a lot done.
