    I swapped out my shielding gas this morning. I need to get my torch tanks filled and buy a bunch of wood before the world shuts down. This virus might actually get me to replace the fascia boards on my house......maybe

    Fixed 3 broken wires on the brake axle. Still not grabbing like I want. Will look into it later. Cutting wood for the deck now.

    Got a little more done. Ended up replacing the crossbeams on the old part of the deck too. Once we got them back on we noticed that they were really warped and wavy. I redid them with all joists on 12" centers. Straight as an arrow. Hopefully tonight I'll finish the deck and start on another extension on another side.

    Finally installing headlights I’ve had for months after clipping a deer back in October. Inspection is due so figured it would be a good time.

    Took off Tuesday to watch the kids so my wife could work and during their nap time started working on replacing the sketchy “temporary” steps that had been there for almost a year :rolleyes:.

    My buddy dropped off some extra sod from a job today so I laid it down. My Zoysia/Centipede/St Augustine hybrid yard should look super classy....but it’s better than the dirt patch that was there.

    Redid my home network and added some smart mesh nodes to make it seamless throughout the house. Also pulled a cat7 to my shop and placed a node out there as well. Now get excellent WiFi everywhere we hang out at except for the fire pit. Think we can live without it down there though.

    Mine's the same way. House was built in the early 60s and the only place a cable line was brought in was in a corner of the basement. I need to run it to a more centralized location, but that's a pain and I'm not that motivated ... yet.

    It’s not rocket surgery, do some research on wireless mesh network equipment and get the amount of nodes for your environment. A lot of companies making the equipment these days and prices are all over the place.

    It’s amazing what you can get done during a conference call.
    Template mocked up. I’m going to use the original cover plate to make the panel.

    Too many projects to list...

    Short list would be get the Willys shifting, rebuild my supply of reloading components and working in the yard

    Full oil and filter change along with a new battery in the Kubota today. Hopefully get 10 years out of this battery like the factory battery. 889F04C4-A350-4EC7-86B8-0F82166D0612.jpeg B63CAB2B-F56E-4776-AAA6-8D77EDBF0E2C.jpeg

    Rewired the trailer and put new lights. Flipped the boards and replaced 2. Went to Costco and got a new battery for the wife's suv and put that in. [​IMG]

    Spent a couple hours at my deer garden/food plot flagging it for some clearing work I traded my 45' high cub conex for...should add another ~2.5 acres & hopefully bigger/more deer in ~3 years, tilling up the yard at my parents house with the tractor for grass seed and working on the C30 wiring.
