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 Things Done.

 Our Location today is Windsor, Ontario.

I’m certain that many are getting tired of me talking about Work. That is something many of us got away from so we could follow our dreams of travelling round bringing our portable homes with us and never worrying about the furnishings we’d have for the next night. Unfortunately life sometimes throws a speed bump our way so we do what is needed to get back on track.

This morning when I went in early the Ten Inch Diameter Feedscrew was already on the Inspection Bench located next to the TIG Welder. There were approximately a dozen Pin Holes that needed filling. It took Five Minutes to set up. Five Minutes to do the job and another Four Minutes to put everything away.

After delivering Two of the Feedscrews that had cooled down in the Sandbox to the Finishing Area it was time to go back to the job that had turned into a Nightmare for me yesterday. I was already adding more weld to the unit when the 7:00 buzzer went off. Knowing that I was still having problems with the Rotary Stepover process Mile again wanted me to call Ted in Indiana for advice. Luckily things were working well when he looked in so he forgot about that idea. Besides Alec will be back next Monday so he’ll straighten me out.

The Unit still needed a second layer of metal to bring it up to the size required for Machining. Instead of adding more small passes I increased the Amperage, added less Powder and increased the width of the Dwell and Stepover. The effect was a Wash. Most Welders have used this practice a few times throughout their careers. That brought down the high spots and filled in the low making everything look uniform. I finished just on time for Jovoh to say “Nice Job”.

I’ve been having a lot of discomfort from my new Denture so the first thing I did on my lunch break was to book an appointment for Monday. Then I briefly spoke with Kathy. The Water had been shut off in our building so she was out walking around Walmart for exercise.

There were more Touch-Ups to finish off the afternoon. The Machinists wanted me to work on a number of different Feedscrews but Paul the Controller pointed to one that is “Past Due”. Guess which one will be in the PTA tomorrow morning.

Today's High.

I was out the door by 3:32 and part of the Rush Hour traffic. Being a weekday there were a number of stops due to School Buses bring the children home from School.

We had more Bananas needing to be used and with my Teeth bothering me Banana Pancakes made for a perfect supper.

Looks like we are forecasted for a dry weekend which means I can finish resealing the Roof on the Trailer. Better safe than sorry.

Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
