I just want to remind everyone again that when you buy your own piece of land out in the country you now become a sewage treatment plant operator, a water treatment plant operator, a power generation plant operator, a plumber, a electrician, a carpenter, a mechanic
, a equipment operator, the list goes on and on. This is a photo of my air injection pump for my sewage treatment plant out for inspection. So you thought living in the country was a more simplistic lifestyle, HA!
I can finly put the done stamp on the metal lathe project. Improvements are, 3 phase motor, vfd inverter drive, spindle rpm display, chip drawer, add door and shelf on bottom left stand, clean and paint, fwd/rev jog switch, leveling feet, rebuild chip tray, and I can't remember what else but I started on this project last fall and I've had enough.
I go through this ever year, rebuild the mower deck. This year it was replace two bearings, weld cracks, replace one wheel, replace one belt, clean off rust and grass, paint, and sharpen blades. The simple life...right.
I just bought this 10" Jet pedestal grinder from the surplus store for $125 and the standard procedure for me is to pour concrete into the base and mount adjusting feet on the bottom. I would like to have a wire wheel, fine and course grinding wheel, and green carbide wheel all set up and ready to use.
eriously folks prices are skyrocketing, 30 lbs of nuts, bolts, and washers was $50, drill bits $200, all I can say is you had better buy what you want now because a couple months from now it will only cost you more money.
