  1. If you are thinking about building a grandfather clock I built a grandfather clock from a kit from Emperor Clock in the 70s for my wife. I had few tools and little space, so a kit was the only way. I built one from scratch about 10 years ago for my daughter. Both clocks require a yearly cleaning/lubrication. Moving one is also a task. You must remove weights, pendulum and secure everything else. After you move the clock to do anything at all, you must level it so that the pendulum has balanced travel. All weights do not weigh the same and you must be sure you put the proper weight in where it belongs. When I see a clock in someone's home, it is usually not running, due to lack of attention. It costs to have them cleaned and cared for. Now that I am older and have problems with my hands, this maintenance is twice as difficult. Big hands in small places don't work well. Of course a dropped tiny piece always goes to the most difficult location. The older clock is worn and does not chime properly. I'm thinking that it will stay that way
  2. Here are the two things you need to check weekly on your air compressor: Inspect Filters. If filters are clogged with dirt, your compressor won’t run efficiently. Clean or replace filters as needed for optimal performance. Inspect Belts. Look over belts for signs of wear like cracking or stretching. Replace as necessary
  3. Check the Safety Release Valve. Test the valve by pulling it out to make sure that it functions properly. Check and Tighten All Bolts. Check All Connections for Leaks.
  4. I'll tell ya something, you don't know what you have till you clean the old shop up! I am stripping out my cabinets of supplies, the finishing supplies cabinet, the hardware cabinet, the spray gun cabinet, and I forgot I had half of what I am seeing! Not too mention I am coming across items I forgot I had, yet I went to the big box store to buy anyway, I am finding 3 of the same items simply because I either forgot I had them or could not find them, and I went and bought another. Right now I am going through the finishing supplies stuff, about a dozen Minwax cans that must be 8 years old, since I don't use Minwax anymore they are old and crusty, going into the trash. I cleared out my hardware cabinet and half of that is going to dad's home for his "catchall" bucket of fastners and hardware. I just fired up the compressor so I can blow the cabinets out, came in to escape the noise. Ok, back out we go! CHAARRRRGE! What prompted this? I went out this morning to get reacquainted with my and realized, I need to get organized, this is ridiculous, I cannot work in chaos! Wish me luck!
