No riveting news in this edition, just pictures of things I’ve encountered in my daily travels. First is a van I saw parked behind a car wash. Does this have something to do with pressure washing poochy in bay 1?
Next is a railroad car with scrap metal in it. this is what your old car looks like after it’s scrapped.
Here’s a boiler I’m painting on a steam locomotive. The first coat is black, the second coat is silver. It’s not required that I do it that way, it just makes it easier to not miss spots. This will be covered by insulation, then a sheet metal jacket, which will be high gloss black.
Speaking of railroad equipment, here’s a section of a passenger coach which was getting some light colored moss growing on it. Other methods of removal barely worked. I was talking to a friend about it, and she suggested I try white vinegar. It worked really well, didn’t damage the paint at all. this is the same gal that sent me the CoEnzyme Q10 that I mentioned in the last edition. She needs to write a book about natural remedies, or have a web site. I’ll let you know if she does.
Next is a little butterfly that landed on my hand while I was putting lettering on a truck. It stayed there about ten minutes.
Below is the full moon showing through a Walnut tree.
Here’s the final plane work on a panel made from wood reclaimed out of a barn made in the 1700s.
Another little butterfly; this one got caught in my van while I was driving down a highway. He was a little stunned at first, but seemed to recover.
Lastly, a portable table saw I got for Christmas. I’ve included it because every time I use it, I’m still impressed by its performance. It’s not big, and must have some aluminum parts; because it’s lightweight. But man does it CUT!
