    I finally replaced the B1880 charger (the one I had to drill my own holes) with the newer version that has holes for wall mounting. This charger is also quieter.

    but best of all, this charger allows me to visually see the blinking green light without having to squat down to the waist level.

    I think they have two models for that charger , you have the basic one , I don’t think it has a fan , I believe that other one has the turbo mode , but also has a fan , and it’s Bluetooth ready ,

    does that mean it’s charger slower than the BC1880 which has a fan?

    That I’m not sure of , could be , but what this charger has I believe is two speed charge , you can check it out on boschtools site , I I think they have something else like two stage charging , first one is fast to get the battery to a certain percentage , then it does a slower charge to top it off , but don’t quote me on this 😊

    I think I might have overheated the Bosch 18v rotary hammer I just redeemed.

    First time usage, I was using it to chip away some solid concrete for a good half hour, I was wearing thick gloves (due to the vibration) and eventually the tool ran out of juice. I removed the 6.3ah battery and put it on a charger, the charger blinked red because I think the battery was too hot. I removed the gloves and felt the hammer, it was burning hot, too hot to hold without gloves. Black oil was leaking down the chisel bit. I decided to take a break. I wonder if I did any permanent damages.

    After the short break I switched to the corded hammer. I don’t remember my corded hammer getting too hot to touch. I seem to be burning stuff up lately especially Bosch stuff LOL.

    Well good luck with that , hopefully it just overheated , 🤞

    Still in the gutting faze at the office remodel I’m doing. Found the electric was not up to code so it became a little more work. Pulling all the wire has been time consuming. Most walls coming down. Trying to salvage what I can.

    Looks great Ron , will you be keeping what’s left over , or will they deal with that
    I bet you could get a decent amount of money for those rolls of wire , unless you are repurposing it on the job site

    Got most of the railings up on the deck last night.

    That’s really nice Ron , simple but solid , what is the height you put it at

    Will you be putting lights on the posts

    Thanks Brian. Rails are at 36”. And yes going to put lights on the taller posts. They are at 42”.

    That’s going to be a nice touch with the lights , very nice and clean work Ron 👌
    We had those nice string lights up under the gazebo , but unfortunately those pesky squirrels were planning on building a city I guess lol
    Been finding the bulbs with the socket buried in the yard and gardens around the house , even the forest being our fence lol

    We used to have those milwaukee first generation screw driver , my personal opinion , they were the best at the time , very practical and useful
    The best part is that you could just swap out the battery if it died ,

    So more of a funny story today, I got to work and I usually take a thermos of coffee to fill up my camelbak mug throughout the day … today my thermos rattled, but I needed the coffee so I went with it. Come to find out when my wife filled my thermos my grandson helped … by adding rock and a key chain, oh well.

    LoL , that’s funny ,

    Was cleaning up around the yard , my wife noticed this little one , I put it out to the side of the yard , I think it’s just trying to get warm from the sun , first one this year

    It’s still there , I got a better picture

    Ewwww ! I get the creeps from snakes.

    LoL I thought about you today Ron , I guess it came back , or Maybe never left , but the colours are much brighter than when I first saw it

    I would say he never left. I would assume they have a nest near by.

    You are probably right

    Going to use the pressure washer for removing the old sand between the patio stone joints , then replacing with new polymer sand , that’s what was there , just getting weeds and other things between the joints , besides when I removed the older gazebo , I noticed that the paving stones were kinda loose , so I’ll do that before finishing the top panels and then use some tapcons to secure it down

    Well , did an area of about 13×18 removed the old moss and sand or dirt 🤷‍♂️ I was covered in sand and grit lol
    Let it dry , then replace the polymer sand , took two bags of New sand , put up a few more panels , but now I definitely need help , can’t be on the outside and inside at the same time lol , also plumbed the gazebo , and drilled in some tapcons , also finished setting up the new patio furniture , hopefully I can finish the panels this week

    Don’t know what Code you are under, but those boxes wouldn’t fly under the NEC.

    They are required to be protected while in use type.

    They passed electrical inspection.

    Just goes to show how things differ here in the states.

    NEC code calls for.

    Receptacles in wet locations (exposed to weather) must be weather-resistant and have a weatherproof “in-use” cover. This cover provides sealed weather protection even when cords are plugged into the receptacle.

    I used this type , mainly because like you mentioned , if something is plugged in when it’s raining or snowing , it gets wet , even though they are GFCI I still wanted it covered

    That looks like it would be much better.

    At my old place I have a outside GFCI outlet that did not provide weather protection even when cords are plugged into the receptacle.

    One or 2 times I had it trip when a cord was plugged it. This happen during a snow storm.

    Yeah , I don’t know why they still put those on homes here , exactly what happens , even if it’s GFCI , still exposed to the weather and elements , I actually had my pressure washer plugged in to the plug today , and not a problem with water being splashing on the plug , I bought another one for the garden area , I should actually replace the other two on the house with these types.

    How come you never changed all your outdoor plugs to this water resistant style plug?

    Mainly because I never really used most of them , so as long as they are closed , not an issue , it’s mainly when a plug 🔌 is left in them , I just changed the two of them that I generally use , the one in the picture is for the gazebo , and the other one is besides the garage in the front of the house for Xmas lights

    Are those posts in concrete , or not really necessary in your part , I think I remember when you built the shop , they were just set in ground directly

    Each post is on a concrete footer. Then backfilled with dirt.

    Where as my shop I had footers and filled the hole around the post with concrete.

    Oh okay thanks Ron , I thought you might have used something like those protect a post sleeves , I was actually thinking about something like that before pouring concrete around the post , this way if I ever had to replace the post , might be able to just slide it up , might have to be cleaned out to , still looking for options for replacement of the typical treated wood in concrete ,
    The ones that are rotting , not sure of how it’s supposed to be done , I mean what way is better , dig , post in , fill up with concrete , I have had a few guys apparently that are fence specialists tell me two different ways , one said they leave the concrete about 3 to 6 inches below grade , and another one said no it’s slightly above grade and sloped away from the post 🤷‍♂️
    I’m not sure what way would be better , any input from you or Kurt and anyone else would be greatly appreciated 🍻

    Well my wife had to have a new pool. 😮 So we all know what that means. Yep she also had to have a deck. 😞 So to keep her happy I’m building a deck. But that’s not making Ron all that happy with lumber prices the way they are.

    Wow that’s beautiful Ron , good thing you went small 🤭🤭 that’s going to be a great place to hang out on beautiful days , I bet it put a dent in the budget with the price it’s at now.

    For my birthday, my son’s got me a new toy (I hinted). It is a Arbortech Power Carving kit. I went berserk and got some additional attachments. It’s really cool what it can, according to the youtube videow.

    I’ve fiddled around a bit, but I have lot’s of ideas, but maybe not the skill yet.

    I could be believe what saw when I drove by the local GM dealership. They had sign out front of the dealership saying that their inventory was low and they were looking to buy used vehicles. After reading the sign I the car lot had less half vehicles what they normally do.

    I can believe that , the Ford and GMC dealership right here , both have more used trucks on the lot than New , I think GMC have about 6 max New and Ford have about 8 New , I’ve never seen these dealerships with their parking lot empty
    Plus the GMC is a chevrolet buick gmc dealer , so they have a huge parking lot

    #758470

    Well it’s coming up to Two months in a week since I’ve ordered the truck , I talked to the salesman yesterday , they still haven’t heard from the missouri plant yet for the vin number 🥲

    He also said first it could be 3 months , but yesterday , he said it could be more like 4 months , 🤷‍♂️ , hopefully it will be quicker than that 🤞

    That’s too bad. I wouldn’t be surprised if is longer then 4 months.

    Could be , but thank God I’m not in desperate need right now , after the repairs to my SUV , it’s still running good
    But obviously I’m looking forward to getting it , hopefully sooner than that 🤞

    @RonW sorry to bother you Ron , but I noticed that I should have about two posts that got pulled over for speeding lol
    Funny thing is , I believe they are both from being responding to Mark redwood , one in the public tools announcement , and I think the other one is the trucks thread , thanks Ron , not a big deal though , just thought I’d mention it
