    Finally had long enough at home to get the garage cleaned out! Built a new workbench and some shelves, rearranged everything, found all the tools my two "helpers" have strung from he!! to breakfast in the yard, and just generally cleaned house.

    As the cold weather sets in I'm always looking for something to do so if any of you local brothers have a project that you need some help with or some welding work done, drop me a line. No worries on labor charges, they're calculated in beverages:smile2: Happy Holidays!

    Darryl, if you want to bring the deck over here and we can work on it in the shop, I'm happy to help:wink:

    Jess, any time I'm around come on by - I tend to spend a lot of time kind of leaning on whatever it is of mine I'm s'posed to be working on, absorbing cold beverages for inspiration:smile2:

    I need to - I know nobody who's ever seen the garage believes you can actually see the floor:smile2:

    Funny you ask about aluminum - I just picked up a 220v mig set up, a roll of .030 AL wire and a bottle of Argon:big_smile: Gonna burn up a bunch of scrap till I get it figured out and then weld up all the rivets on the bottom of the boat:wink:

    I'm home for the next 2 weeks (vacation from the 19th to the 2nd) so hopefully I'll get to play with my new toy quite a bit.

    Merry Christmas to you too!

    Ah-man, sweet dude! sweet! just remember roll of dimes :wink: she should look like a roll of dimes when yer done, now here is a thought and should be great for practice, see how many of them AB cans you can weld together, once ya get them licked nothing will be hard :smile2: :smile2: considering you must empty said can before it is to be heated :eek:oooh:

    I don't know Branden I have seen you have said adult beverages and those labor rates sound kind of high to me.:haha: Having spent a little time in that shop I am curious to see what the floor looks like, was it how you remembered it when you moved in? J/K buddy I hope you Shawna and the boys have a great Christmas and a happy New Year!

    Have fun in yours and winter will be over before you know it.

    Shop is kind of overstating - it's a two car attached garage. What makes it a shop is working on things/building things in it instead of just parking cars:big_smile: Still, it's warm, has a large selection of tools, and surround soud and a fridge, so I ain't complaining. :big_smile:

    Here you go, O ye of little faith - pix of the garage with nothing on the floor but stuff that belongs there:big_smile: The new mig setup is on the bench. It's nice and toasty in there so I didn't open the garage door to step outside in the freezing rain to get a better pic:smile2:
