    I also bought some Wago 221 connectors for a small electrical modification to my shop extension, anyone ever use them?

    Yes. I started using the multiport connectors (non levered) a few years back, but find them not too useful when the wiring is a mix of solid and stranded. The newer levered connectors from WAGO is great.

    The only thing is there are many knock offs that’s not approved. Need to be very careful when placing orders online. WAGO made in USA is good, WAGO style from China or Malaysia, not so good lol.

    I wish they made a four port connector though.

    Beauty day today. Spent most of it in the overgrown back yard cleaning it up. Got a pretty good section done now. The 18V recip saw was handy. Also had the chainsaw and loppers out along with 2 different rakes and a shovel. You can actually walk through there now. We are leaving most of the trees, just taking out the dead stuff, scrub and undergrowth.

    I have used my Bosch 18V recip saw for a bunch of trimming jobs in the yard, trees, bushes, whatever. I just use the limb cutting blade and no problem.

    Just used my 18v Bosch recip on Wednesday to cut up some dead branches that came off a tree that’s partially on one of my properties

    Another nice day of yard work. Got all the dogwood(?) cleaned out. Not sure if that’s what it is. Red bushes with roots that go on for miles under the ground and pop up with new plants.

    Anyway, we completed the area that we wanted to get done and it’s like a park there now. You can walk through a nicely treed area that has all been raked up. Still have a bunch of stumps to take out but that can wait.

    Going to start measuring the windows for the trim outdoors tomorrow. Hardware store had Thompson’s water seal on sale, so that is what I am going to use on the cedar trim.

    Do you use a pruning blade for your recip saw? I have one for my recip saw. I haven’t used it alot.
    Sounds like you just need a couple park benches now.

    This week has been very busy for me. On Sunday I rented a U-Haul trailer to bring my woodworking machines from my old shop to my new shop. While I was moving the machines out we had the sewer back up. We stopped to deal with that problem for while. Tried to get a plumber to come look at it. Not many plumbers work on Sunday. Wifey did get hold plumber I know and he came looked on Tuesday. As there did seem to be blockage in the sewer line. When the the plumber came they snaked it out and also ran a camera down the sewer line. After several attempts they got the blockage cleared. They started digging up the ground where the blockage. He thought they might have replace the pipe. The other day I had go back to the rental property and fill in the hole. As he thought if I filled the hole in it would save me some money. It didn’t take too long.

    I restacked my 1x10x10 pine lumber. I put stickers between the layers to help it dry.

    Edit: added pictures

    Looks like it may be. The label is all worn off of my blades so I just look at them and guess…lol.

    I don’t what they are called either but they are a pain, you yank and pull think you have them all then they pop up again. The only I know to get rid of them is to keep pulling up the roots. If you use a defoliant on the leaves that plant will die but a new shoot off the root springs up.

    A section of the back yard is looking much better though. You could not walk through it before.

    Not sure, a couple of acres maybe. I know it compromises of multiple (8 to 12) lots plus a road allowance where the road never went in and the church bought it before they sold it to us.

    Yeah thanks again Bill , we hope so , the other one that the previous owners Left was probably about 14 years old , the posts at the bottom finally rusted out , that plus those canvas tops only seems to last only about 3 years , the sun is extremely hard on them , and around 350 bucks , we would have been buying a fourth top this year , figured we’d try something else for hopefully about a decade
    I really like the wooden cedar ones that they have at Costco , but always out of stock for the size we want 12×14 or actually wanted the 12×16 , oh well , hopefully it lasts a while 🤞
