The countdown continues. Although it is absolutely beautiful today, there seems to be a lot of rain in the forecast for the week. Hope that doesn't put a crimp on anyone's plans. Not mine, we supply the dinner - family has to travel. We have a lot to accomplish before the holiday although it does seem that we are much more on schedule than we were last year at this time. Not sure why that is, but hey, I'm not complaining :)
Paul is converting a trailer into a temporary flatbed to carry some large parts out to get soda blasted. We have a couple but they are filled with stuff we don't want to handle twice.
John has devised a rig to both pump holding tanks and rinse the hoses and systems with fresh water. The honey dipper was in today and the rig had it's initial run. I was in the building long enough to take the photo but the stink just ran me out.
We have the drive units from this jet drive out getting soda blasted. These are the units that go with the massive Man engines.
And speaking of Man engines, this is the one we removed awaiting pickup. We strapped it Friday to lift it into the truck.
One of our many home-made winterizing tools is the nozzle that goes with our antifreeze pump. This allows us to attach into a line and control flow from that location with the nozzle.
