generator progress

Things are going pretty smoothly with the new design.  I spent all day chopping steel and welding, manly stuff indeed.  working on the generator has afforded me the opportunity to work with some tools in the shop that i never get to  use.   The sand blasting station is a lot of fun. It feels like a radioactive chamber and it’s nice seeing all the crusty paint come off the frame.  I think i’ll strip it down and let Jess have her painterly way with it.  My personal favorite of new machines is the Porta-Ban.  It’s like a crazy weapon from the terminator movies and makes cutting steel tubes a piece of cake.

It’s nice when things turn out just like you pictured them in your head.  I’m excited to be working on this and i’m looking forward to seeing it actually function.
