    LOL

    I try to cut it in half longitudinal, used a 40 grid flap disk, took some decent amount of material off during the process. They only applied one stitch to keep everything in place, it was impossible to close it up. Pushrods were ok by some miracle, so I’m a lucky sob. It's just a scratch.

    Grtz,
    Bart

    I love it, Bart! Making the most of what you've got. My shop is no bigger and I appreciate a guy who can get five-pounds of crap into a two-pound bag.

    Oh no she is not hiding, she refuses to come out of the basement before the garage is dust free, painted and at her desired temperature.

    I need to get the freezer out of the garage into the basement first to make room. Can’t do it on the moment because I tried to make an additional index finger with an angle grinder, although I failed the emergency staff agreed it was a good attempt.

    I still need to make cabinets for the CNC, 3D resin printer and silent dust extraction.

    Making progress on the shop. Changing the workshop from the basement to the garage is a logistic challenge. The shed serves like an intermediate warehouse. The basement is rearranged as a laundry now. Made a decent railing on the stairs for now so nobody will take the fast way down, I will make a new stair after everything is moved out. My machinery is still there although dismantled.

    Works done on the garage and why are some things done as they are:
    • Existing cabinets were removed and disposed off.
    • Existing tiling removed and disposed off, Toughed-up plastering .
    • Southerly brick wall, water barrier installed, applied new plaster.
    • New shelving installed, wanted to keep max floor spacing, designed shelf so I can walk underneath (just).
    • Made “wood board” shelf above the garage door, less high but much deeper to store spare boards and large cutoffs.
    • Installed french cleats around the shop, I want a modular shop where I can move things around when necessary, everything you see hanging on the walls can be moved around.
    • Rearranged lightening fixtures.
    • Installed range hood for extraction of fumes, also the hood can slide from left to right.
    To be continued….
    Grtz,
    Bart

    Kids outgrow the garden so we desided to turn it into our little paradise.
    Landscaping the garden is almost finished, new shed, paving and flower boxed (don't know if this is a word).

    As compensation we agreed that I can move my workshop from the basement to the garage were I have daylight, yes.
    The content of garage (now acting as a laundry room) has to move to the basement, need to install an additional pump for the washing machine and replace the stairs, the one in now is to steep to be save (I was used to it but it will be to dangerous going up and down with the laundry).

    So I'm busy on all front except on the sub, I haven't a workshop anymore, beginning of march is my goal to have it ready.

    Grtz,
    Bart
    Go get 'em, Bart. First things first.

    Me too, you Belgian muffin. Some of us have genuine excuses for not posting (and some others come from chocolate making countries)! Get with the program; I'm dying (literaly) to see this thing finished.

    The fwd grating on the sail was integrated in the print but it didnít turn out as I wanted. Before making the mould I had to address that.

    Traced the contours of the new part on the sail, contour was cut out and grinded to take the new part.

    New part was glued in place with CA, applied baking soda to fill up the gaps, air dried putty was used to fill up the small imperfections.
