Trash was probably in the tank. Seams like every time my tank dries out more chips show up.
If you haven't moved that shelf yet I have some foam that will help.

The Big Move to Macedon, the reason for my absence.

This is a little rough, it will give you an idea of why I have been absent.

We have moved from our home of 20 years to a new home with LOTS of projects to video tape.

Glenn – “welcome back and welcome home” the property makes moving around plus organizing much easier compared to the prior place; for all your stuff, that’s superb.  It’s easy to follow along in the video your thought process for making improvements.  The Case will mostly pay for itself the moment you have finished digging 36” down and backfilling that trench line.  A cubic yard of dirt weighs just over a ton, more if it’s wet.  Alan

The Trench to the Barn, Power to the shop, even water

Not sure how to make digging a trench and putting a water pipe and conduit (for power for the shop) into to it interesting.

This is the start of the conversion of the brown barn into my new SHOP!.
I have to start somewhere.

More videos to follow.
