Those rubber Furnco's are great but be aware I have seen them chewed thru by rodents.
“Working” from home, with a two year old not much time to be out in the shop during the day as my wife is still working. We do have a new guardian dog however so it’s a nice stress relief!

This morning I was wondering how many people licking envelopes and tossing them in the mailbox
Working to keep America rolling along. Just another day in the office, but the drive in was easy.
I'm considered essential since I work for a defense contractor. Things internally are a little slow, people out and waiting for a few things to happen first. Less and less cars each day, rumored we are getting letters to have with us to prove we are essential workers.
One thing good, they have cranked the heat down inside, much more comfortable to work in. I worked outside for 10 years on cars and towing, also construction as a kid, I could never get used to coming inside to work. I have a good resistance to cold weather.
If they are taking furlough volunteers, I am all over that. I retire on April 30th and it would be groovy to take unemployment into retirement.
called a couple of suppliers before venturing out , secured a bottle of Accetylene and a bottle of argon mix , The supermarkets are still open so will worry about food stuffs later Got all I need to keep going on the current build The good thing is there wont be any visitors to the shed to distract me .. should have this one done toute suite .. wifes off too but at least we cant go anywhere .. its almost a perfect arrangement ..lol..
Yes, dump that all rubber one for the approved no hubs, pretty bored here sorry.
In the garage of course. Gonna paint some motorcyle parts for my uncle
Working at home but also spending more time In the garage to get the 65 Plymouth finished.

Retired so being home is nothing new for me. Got the 31 & 32 ready for the road. Spend
Quality time with the wife and dogs , reading & model making. Stay healthy everyone !
Am pooped. Good weather finally today.
Spent the day edging the city block size garden in my village.
There are about 30 beds separated by pathways that needed edged with a trencher. Dragging that monster around all day really wore me out.
Aerial view in the finished state.
I think I have enough parts to build a girl robot in my garage. I was thinking of making recordings of what I want it to say then I realized that it might be creepy hearing my own voice telling me what I want to hear...
Hats off to you! Fight it!
Good luck with the clean-out and move
i need 40s parts if you got extras
Like the B-coupe
At 72, like so many of our members with some prior health issues. Trying to and hoping to dodge this Caronna bullet. Have not been in garage for 2 weeks. When installing front sheet metal, had to drill a hole. Drill bit hung up flipped drill around and mashed right hand. Swelled twice its size, hurt like hell, but it’s getting better. Feeling like some garage time now,
Well besides cleaning the shops and shredding old papers I have been working on the redwood pens from redwood wine casks from the Taylor Winery in Hammondsport NY. The barrel was 16' long and about 12' in diameter. I scored about 8 staves in 1997 and made a picnic table and now these pens. This is the first one and it was not without issue, the nub at the bottom of the pen did not press in, it went in by hand so I glued the sob in. It is coming along, I now need to work on the barrel and cradle, polishing and sanding.
Keep your distance.
I have one of those. But just don't get her Wet!
I save all of my dash plaques, flyers, windshield info cards, & pics from car shows I have attended since 2003 for scrapbooks. been getting caught up with that, now caught up to Sept 2019..take alot of cool scenery & back road trip pics...last summer drove old lincoln hwy from omaha to denver after going to good-guys des moines, took way too many pics
what time off? we're still working, none of us want to be but they haven't called a stay in place order yet. we are now up to 477 cases with 18 in my county. that's alabama for you.
What time off?? I'm considered essential. No slack time here. Truth be told it's been even crazier now than before!
I inherited my father's hardware collection about 35 years ago, finally got down to going through it and separating the Phillips, Standard and our favourite Robertson's. Heater is on, his old anvil keeping me company, a fresh Moosehead not far away.
Getting projects running...
last shift today in the rental car business
maybe back to work July 2020 if travel improves
will work on '32
We working too, even if a "shelter in place" comes to order, we are supposed to work. My company will let us off, but my company supports Amazon, 90% of the stuff coming through our place is household goods right now. Not the cheap assed Chinese trinkets we used to see. I have to keep doing my part (in a very small way compared to all the Frontline folks) to make sure the conveyors stay running so all will get the needed supplies that we don't want to venture out for.
Tip your delivery guy/gal...
Looks like I get to keep working at the plant. Shelter in place order starts today...30 days. I drew an essential straw though. I'll just keep working in the shop on my evenings and weekends.
I'm actually grateful to be working, and send well wishes to all those who are losing their jobs.
