Could that be a composite filling device?
Portable, handheld X-ray unit. The thick glass ring helps stop back scatter.


How many of you guys went to work with your dad? My dad intentionally made me ride with him in the log truck multiple times growing up.
These pictures remind me of that—seeing other guy’s professions is interesting.

Pops would take me with him often going from job to job. He owned a big construction firm. Built bridges, roads, tore stuff down. He had a pyrotechnics license and would implement dynamite sometimes. Can still smell and taste that. Meet many fine people. And some real jerks too.

While tearing down a mill brick by brick, one of the plumbers working there was telling me repeatedly how his grandson would kick my ass. I must had been 11 years old at the time cause Dad died when I was 12. No telling what this guy was thinking. People can be that way sometimes. Pops pulls up on the job and I ran over to him to get some money for the roach coach. That plumber must have seen that because the rest of the day he spent apologising to me and telling me he was only kidding.

Last fall I bought 10 3/4 advantech sheets at $55.
Just out of curiosity checked yesterday & they are $76.00
On craigslist, people are listing used plywood for sale that should have gone into the burn pile.
(It's ok though because I heard on the radio that mortgage rates are at an all time low.)
Seriously, though this shit has me worried.

In reference to COVID

We are doing all that crap at work. Just this past Friday I put all merv 13 filters in an empty building. $1300 worth. I'm sure nobody will be in there by the next time I change them. They are also so restrictive they speed the VFDs up and most likely will crack the heat exchangers.

Put a Austin Air Heppa filter in our house for the wife. It made her happy. Also landed a new ERV (air exhanger) for the house last week. Paid $200 on K-bid. We not worried about covid more just want fresher air inside the house.


Been listing like crazy. Landed another load of HVAC parts this week.
