sprk, love the look in that link. I imagine you probably improved on the design and made it yours? I'd love to see how your bar stools turned out when they are finished. Pics smile

Sparkie, I respect a guy who can do the things you can do. i look at the board u pictured and say WOW!! Me, I am useless unless it can be done with just a hammer. I told my wife, I don't do anything that requires more than a hammer, if you need more done call someone else. smile

WOW!; $565 for a swing out seat.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

TJ-Haven't gone once this winter!

Been here from time to time just not a whole lot I can add so I haven't posted much.

Don't want to hijack (sorry Tony) but how's the fish business treating you? Doing any work in the Tundra of MN?

If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

If I was told to manage something like that, I'd just turn around at the door and go back to my coloring books. Only last year did I learn to stay within the lines. I am what I am.

Want to hear something strange?

"Adult coloring books" are the best-selling books on Amazon right now. I didn't believe it until my wife showed me.

JKB, those are old Otis controllers from the sixties. That's the cool part...I get to experience the relay logic stuff, and the latest and greatest static units. Many of the older units are scheduled for mod. I'll try and get a shot of a new unit, but have 40 hours of OSHA training next week, and Arc flash, confined space, and respirator after that.

Canyoncreek, I'm building our units from 3/8" plate, rather than castings. I hope they turn out okay, here's what I started with. I'll post a few more photos soon.

I took a ride or three on the 120+ year old Otis elevator #61 at the Del Coronado Hotel in San Diego a few years back. Still works great!....Kinda slow though smile Looks like your job is going to require knowledge from several eras. Awesome!

I'm thinking the pic you posted is way high tech compared to what's controlling old #61!...although it has been converted to electricity! smile

I met this guy.

Speaking of hotels and elevators, I've been to the Del Coronado a few times, but don't recall ever leaving the ground floor. I've also been to the LaBonte Hotel in Douglas, WY, which has (or at least had when I was there) the first elevator in the State. I didn't ride on that elevator either. The things a person doesn't think to do when they have the chance.

Sorry to say, I haven't had opportunity to meet the ghost but that would be way cool!

No doubt this is one very cool historical hotel. Lots of folks that aren't staying there still come just to check the place out. I recommend stopping by to anybody that will be in SD. smile
