Glass top stove has a 12" burner whose center went out. I TURNED OFF THE POWER after getting zapped, then removed the clips holding the backing plate up. Easily found the break in the element. I simply took some very fine needle nose plier and bent each end into a hook and then folded and clamped them together. Works great!

The nag herself has had me building some desks and built-in adjustable shelf units for her “crafting” room the past few days. Doing this for no pay so no way am I posting pictures of that crap.

Been a really slow few weeks around here but got a call earlier that my frame job was finally poured today so back in business tomorrow if the rain holds out.

Will be good to get back after it, should allow me to put the olde lady’s project on the back burner, again.

what ! No rain suits?

what would you cats do if you were working in Seattle?

i know what I did there for two years , learned how to pour and finish concrete in the rain

otherwise my three rug rats wouldn’t eat....

I hated working in the rain but I had to do it , no sick pay , no paid holidays , no paid personal time , just hard work...

but look at me now!...


Looking forward to the photos Amigo

Wanka, I've come to expect the vixen with no pictures from Brother 'dial, always figured you'd be ready if/when the opportunity arose. I'm saddened...
Edit: At least you tried, was posting when you posted.

Seriously though that’s my new truck. Got it the fifth of last month and then the world went to shit. First time I’ve ever financed a vehicle in my life.

It’s a 2012 Ram 1500 regular cab with the hemi. 59k on the odometer, nice truck, hope I can stay busy and pay for it now.

Work always pops up. You and Pops must have a good reputation. What kind of market us out there, Wanka? Is there much competition?

Things are still going steady down here Hammers. Lots of people fighting the weather trying to get projects out of the ground. I’ll be on this little house the better part of two weeks then several odd projects after that, that have piled up and came ready about the same time.

Should have a smaller version of the last house I posted in the next month or two.

Yea though, pops and I are known of in the carpenter circles around here. Under normal conditions if I find myself without a project work is usually a phone call or two away. We’ve worked on lots of crews through the years and most of them jump at the chance to have us back around making them money.

As long as the lumber yard stays open we’ll be workin, Rona be dammed.

We recently went out and got all of the supplies to finish the house just in case things shutdown.

stonedywankanobe,
Remember, when all is said and done, all a man really has is his word and his reputation. You & your pops have worked decades to earn that reputation. From what I can see in this thread, it's well deserved.

Here's hoping y'all stay healthy, safe and employed.

I plan on spending the coming week finishing off my brudders place to get it ready for sale. He has a modular that was set about 11 years ago. For the most part, living area is good to go but basement needs some attention. Looking forward to hanging with him. Things have been somewhat peaceful here. Lot of fed or state funded projects put on hold. It would be criminal to close suppliers.
