Heating Season

The Field Lab - Wed, 2018/10/17 - 3:16pm
Broke out the Mr. Heater a couple of days ago. Discovered right away that it had some issues. The pilot light flame was too small to heat the sensor enough to fire up much less keep it running. A couple of YouTube videos later and the problem was fixed. Had to crack it open (there are a lot of screws to find) and disconnect this line to the pilot light and blow it out with compressed air. Ordered a back up heater just in case...I really don't like the cold. 52,55,47, .08",C

AA

The Field Lab - Tue, 2018/10/16 - 2:25pm
Super crappy weather this week so I have my rainy days project to work on.  Doing some tests for a possible commission for some AA "desire chips" cast in fine silver.  Had 3 failed attempts but I am getting there.  Just need to tweak the pour so I can get a little more detail and everything is legible.  40,48,38, .15", C

the story of the cross: update

The Field Lab - Wed, 2018/10/10 - 6:11pm
So I finally tracked down my nurse (found her on Facebook) and sending a cross to her tomorrow.  I think she remembered me because I gave all my nurses this postcard of me and Ben.  She left this comment on my story of the cross post after I sent her the link.

John. Thank you! I feel that God put me as a nurse for a reason and He crosses our paths for a reason. I pray pretty much everday that God will make me holey (full of holes) so that His light shines through those holes. Thank you for reaching out and sharing!

strangers...

The Field Lab - Sun, 2018/10/07 - 1:45pm
Hebrews 13:2  Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.  3  Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body.

zapped...

The Field Lab - Wed, 2018/10/03 - 4:08pm
Everything was going so well today until I headed out to the store to buy some milk for a batch of croissants.  Just before I got to the highway, my truck died and a puff of smoke came out from under the hood.  (Puffs of smoke are never good because it means some of the magic has been released.) Luckily I found a friend at the mailboxes who was willing to drive me home to get some tools.  The problem was just as I suspected - some of the wiring for my winch decided to weld itself to the chassis, shorting out my battery and completely frying the ground wire.  Removed the offending wiring and patched in a new ground wire and I was good to go.  Just glad it was what I thought it was because I am pretty clueless otherwise when it come to internal combustion engines... 87,92,65,0,B
