It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

Getting Ready, More Modifications and We Think We Found It.

When I arrived at Work this morning the first thing I did was to check if the TIG Welding Machine had been repaired. Since the Supervisor was the one who opened the door this morning he was quick to point out that the Electrician had done a temporary repair and would return soon with the proper parts to fix it properly. What the Electrician had done was to use a full roll of Electrical Tape to stop the post from contacting the Machine’s Frame. Too bad he didn’t notice that the TIG Torch Block was in fact now touching the Machine’s Frame.

I spent most of the day working on anything other then the welding itself. Making adjustments so the pieces would fit perfectly. Bolting the Sides in place not only on the First Floor Pan on the Rotisserie but on the Second Floor Pan that I assembled on the Welding Bench.

I finally located materials that I could use as an Insulator to place between the TIG Torch Block and the Machine’s Frame before giving it a try. With no sparks flying as I proceeded to try using the TIG function to weld Aluminium. Someone had changed some of the settings but with a few adjustments this Machine was running smoother then it has since I started working with it back in July.

I was welding together a Tailgate when the Supervisor came over to see how the Machine was running. I told him that I had been hesitant on using it and why. Then I really made him smile when I said “Somethings wrong because I’m not getting Zapped and the Torch was staying cool.”

Soon the Owner’s Brother showed up with the parts needed to do a modification to the Second Aluminium Project. He showed me how this had to be put together then expressed a concern. I told him about a simple modification that I had suggested to his Brother that he had rejected.

It was at that time the Owner came around and was really impressed at the difference in the way the TIG Machine was operating. His Brother had gotten the pieces I had created and showed the Owner how they would benefit the Project. Guess what I have to add to that Second Aluminium Project in the morning.
Kathy made certain that the Water Heater was on when I got Home. That warm shower felt wonderful. To save time we were out the door before 4:30 heading back to Windsor where we stopped at Wendy’s for supper. The food was made quickly and we didn’t have any dishes to clean up afterwards. Also the fact that we ordered from the Value Menu helped keep the costs very low.
We were early for our appointment and Brenell was waiting for us. We had the chance to see not One but Two different Units. Even though they have both been used and need some cleaning with a slightly more reasonable price then most have asked we think we may have come to the end of our search.
We stopped at the Great Canadian Superstore to pick up a few groceries. Some will help us through the week while others will be used for our Merry Thanksmas Celebration that we’ll be celebrating with our Family this coming Weekend. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
