    Ugh….this is one of the reasons why my posting slowed down….
    It shouldn’t be more difficult to post pics here than anywhere else.
    Can someone remind me on the correct way to to post photos again?

    Yeah I can’t seem to post videos
    I usually click choose file under the yellow bar just below , and I just noticed it’s down to 3 mb per picture I thought it used to be 4
    Maybe someone else can add better info.

    I usually post from my phone. It allows me to choose the size pic I want to send.

    Another round with my neighbours snow thrower. I have the carb stripped off it again. By the looks of it I am not the first human in there. I looked online and there are brand new carbs for under $25 including shipping. I spoke with the guy and sent him the link, so a new carb is going on when it gets here.

    It is most likely your best bet to replace the carb. That is a good price for a carb.

    I find most pictures I take with my phone need to be resized. So I just use a app to do this. It pretty easy to resize pictures this way.

    I managed to install an 8′ patio door and a window.
    Too cold to remember to take pictures.

    I can believe the too cold thing. Lots of cold out there, even down south the cold air is coming.

    temps are 30 degrees below normal for this time of year here. No snow yet either. It will push the frost deep this year. Really putting a damper on outside work.

    Got a call from the Realator on one of my houses last night that they pushed the closing from a week from Friday to this Friday. I sent the guys there today to finish up a little bit of stuff on the deck and the railings. Not fun in this weather but it has to be done. It will be nice to get paid off on the house and we only have a day of work to get done in normal weather. It would have been done a couple of weeks ago but we had another job we were also trying to finish.

    Well I managed to drag my tank of liquid nitrogen in but only to find out that the cold weather has affected the valves
    Last week when they delivered it , I guess the driver was kinda ruff with the tank ,
    Regardless I’ll use what I have , the good news is that the specialist for replacement of the newer turbomolecular pumps will be in Friday to replace our older system sorption pumps.
    Hopefully it all goes well , this means not using the liquid nitrogen any longer.

    I actually edited a video today. I have been sorely lacking in motivation lately. Pretty achey too after moving a bunch of snow for the first time this year.

    Today should be a good day , two guys coming down , one tech from TO and the regional sales manager from Kanata to help me set up a new turbomolecular pumps and controller for our filling station , I have a feeling it could be a long day. I’m looking forward to seeing this system working , should cancel out plenty of safety issues related to the liquid nitrogen , and the added time it takes to get the system running. I’ll add before and after pictures later on.

    The carb for the neighbours blower came in yesterday. I installed it, but it still would not start. It wanted to, but wouldn’t quite catch. Someone here had mentioned the flywheel key, so I stripped it down again to check. The key was there and in one piece, but it seemed there was a bit of play in it, it may have fallen out and just sitting in there. So I carefully lined it up, then adjusted the ignition air gap to spec. Put everything back together, checked the spark (again), cleaned up the plug and it now purrs like a hungry dog on a T bone steak. I also took out all the old gas and put in a bit of non ethanol high test in it. I think that helped. Told the guy to only put high test in it because there is no ethanol in it (at the local Shell station anyway). The old carb had some rust in it, so I figure that was part of the problem with the original carb going south.

    Boy , sounds like you put in a lot of time into this snow blower , I bet your neighbor really appreciates that.

    Went into the shop for an hour to check on the status of the new pumps , looks like it’s going to be successful
    Hopefully it keeps building up the vacuum
    Then came home and started to clean up, going to get ready for some long overdue Reno work here.

    I’ve literally done nothing in the shop in weeks. This time of year my day job(recycling plant operator) has me leaving before the sum comes up and getting home after it goes down. Combine that with a 8×10 tin shed for a shop, overly stuffed with tools/parts and that leaves no room for a heater.

    Did spend a good deal of yesterday cleaning my baler at work as we had a contractor coming in to rebuild the upfeed conveyor. Had my upervisor come down and ask me what was making me so upset. I normally can make people think I can be in 2 places at once, but yesterday I was asked o be in 3 places at once(feeding/running the baler, running a skid-steer(cat 262D) feeding the sorting system, and cleaning the baler to “spotless”, for the contractor to work on it. The day ended with everyone digging out a pit of “primordial ooze”. Contractor needed to get into the pit in the floor in which the baler feed conveyor sits. Can’t be accessed when the baler in in operation and the baler is the first machine started an last shut down every day. Combine that with a management dictate limiting work hours(our normal 7am-4pm, with cleanup exceeding that, and going home early every Friday to make up,) results in that pit not being cleaned out completely in at least 5 years(as long as I’ve been there. Had horrible headache today/last night, I”m blaming on the dust/nastiness/primordial ooze in that pit, did have a sump, pump hose burst and got some of it to the face.

    I’ve literally been had to work through breaks/ squeezed into into any spare minute, e-waste packaging, for some reason, no one else will do it, possibly since I’m very particular, as I’m the only one to load that shipment and I require that the packaging(i.e. Jenga w/ TV’s) make it onto the truck without falling apart.

    And also routine maintenance, which I’ve, due to completely no guidance by the maintenance dept(all paperwork says is, “grease all fitting daily”(done that and blew ruined bearing due to blown out seals due to excessive grease), developed my own routine. Had that written down and put into practice with my annual review last year(I’m constantly looking for a new job, and due to such have felt it’s my responsibility at the very least, pass on why/how(since I’ve been there, there has been a substantial reduction in major breakdowns and ) but no one but me actually followed though and that only as time permits(supposed to grease bearing every week/2 weeks(based on shaft size). Supposed to grease 2”- bearings every other week and 2″+ bearings every week. Since I’m in the skidsteer, I can’t recall anything but skidsteer/baler(machines I operate), having been greased/ shafts cleaned(I do weekly), since I’ve been back in the skidsteer.

    Had more than my share of this this year. Grandfather has Craftsman weed eater with clutch issues. He doesn’t rev it up in use. clutch stops turning. Makes sense as the clutch is centrifugal. His old Homelite had/has a gas leak issue. Spent the last half of the summer trying to fix it. Just as winter hit, I had a roll of 3/32 fuel line show up, as I’ve dried up all the local sources and halve a few chainsaws in cue, needing it.

    Hopefully they listen about the non-ethanol, can’t get anyone I know to listen about that.

    It was such a lovely day today that I opened up the shop and milled a bunch of cedar for use as trim. I think I have enough stock to finish up the bathroom now. As a bonus, my shop smells like wood again instead of gasoline from the snow thrower that was sitting in there for over a week.

    Putting up aluminum siding today… About 3 square, it has been a while since I have done this much aluminum siding – mostly deal with vinyl or hardi anymore.
