Nice!

I've got a little heater unit that came out of a drier (I think). I'll PM some pics to see if that would work

I'm pretty sure it will work perfectly.

Plus, if run on 110v instead of 220v, will be quite safe, and easier to turn the heat lower.

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.

Freedom without responsibility is chaos.

Replaced ALL the exterior lighting fixtures on my house. A little interesting balancing on a ladder, but easy electrical work.

Thanks guys!

Yeah this is straight 110v so I can plug it in anywhere including straight to the generator if needed. The fan as plugged in separately, so it's always on, with the ball-chain on the door allowing for airflow adjustment. The temp control unit just uses a 10kohm resister - mounted near the food for proper control. (You see the blue wires outside, and the resister circled below) This way I don't have to try to calculate volts applied for given degrees - just set the control with the appropriate offset, and it will turn on/off heat as needed. :thumbsup2:

I think it's a pretty good theory that I can use just about any type of heat source/element that can be mounted in the bottom. Just have to make sure the element doesn't get too hot before the resister feels it. :gibbs:
(Although, seeing the lights on is an easy way to know it's still working)

ps. And yes, those are plumbs, pruning. Mrs. already made 3 batches of sugar plums... Can't get her to try to make wine though... :facepalm2:

Put our front porch light back together

I blasted the frame and repainted it. Scrubbed the dead bugs and crud off all the milk glass

Don’t think it’s ‘vintage’ but I like fixing old stuff rather than buying new

I did the back porch light a while ago

I was kinda annoyed this weekend (again) when I needed to spray something with some wd40 and I picked up a full can and pushed the top and...... nothing --- all the gas had leaked out - I seem to remember that I discovered that earlier in the spring, but forgot about it..... Well, I was cruising thru some youtubes and saw this....

Went out to the garage and gave it a try and it worked beautifully! Thought I'd pass it along incase others have depressurized cans laying around like me.

I've used the tire valve stem method to recharge spray cans for years. Handy! :thumbsup2:

Yup.

I learned about it from SixtyFiveFord, a couple years before everyone else, like the guy above, copied him...

5 and a half million views on just this one video, and the guy still only has just less than 180k subscribers. Tragic. But plenty of people copying his ideas over the years, and grabbing up the subscribers.
