Found her sitting on wife's dresser and she told me she wants a few twins if that's possible... funny how wooden angels can talk....Well I have all the ingredients here and there and I might throw in a real rock instead of the wood she stands on...So why not since I got to drink about 60 bottles of GA so this project will take a break while I get my tongue red four or five times a day for a few days so I can get started on these angels twins... I will turn on my Dremel tonight so it will be good and warm in the morning when I start slinging wood chips on my clean floor...I even just restocked my used up roll of bailing wire with a fresh new roll so hey.... I just last week had to saw up some fallen large tree limbs the wind done knocked down so these mesquite thingys are fixin to be turned into angels. Also I got a few patterns for carving projects laying on the table saw so don't know which will get the most attention to start with... I did take a break this morning and watched the women's soccer finals and it was a great game, well better for the American rooters anyway.
Dear folks, I want to put my Shopsmith on a dedicated 20 amp circuit. I so happen to have a dedicated circuit that I had an old 3hp 220v shaper on years ago. You can see the images below. My question is, is there any easy way to convert this to 110v. Can I simply open up the wall outlet, and reconfigure a couple wires for a regular 3 prong outlet? Or do I have to switch the breaker out along with pulling new wires through? Thanks for any help. Number "4" where the 20/20 is, was my shaper. Here is the outlet I used for the shaper that I want to now use for my Shopsmith.
Well, determined that something in the wall had chewed through the wires to the porch light. Not wanting to go digging into said wall.....decided to go around the problem. Length of the better kind of E-Cord, a handy box, and a single pole switch were picked up. Decided to move the light fixture to the north a bit, to get away from the Gazebo's top. Placed it right above the back door, where it is UNDER the overhang of the roof. Snipped off the fancy end of the cord. Running from a wall outlet up to the handybox......and fight to get the wire through it. Made a short loop and then hooked the switch up. Black wire to the switch. Big 1/2" "D" handle heavy duty drill ( NOT about to use a brace & bit up there) with a 16" long 1/2" drill bit. Made a mark about half way between the door casing and the ceiling. Drilled straight through to the outside of the wall. Pushed the cut end of the cord through the hole. Things were going way too easy.......hmmm. A few staples to hold the cord in place. Went outside, and put a ladder up. Location looked GOOD! ( bad sign) Got the light fixture down from it's old spot....forgot to check something....wired the fixture in place. Assembled the Jelly Jar fixture onto the wall....went in to get a good bulb......wait for it....went to screw the bulb into the fixture......nothing to screw into......WTH?????? Well, left this mess un-plugged for tonight. Will have to go to Lowes or Wallie World tomorrow and BUY a new jelly jar fixture. #@#$$#@###@!!!. Just KNEW something was going way too good. maybe tomorrow, I can switch out the two fixtures, and THEN maybe, just maybe...have a back porch light that actually works. Somedays, ya just need to stay in bed....
