    Terry, enjoyed reading the above and seeing the photos. As I am unable now, to do anything in the workshop, I am trying to learn Fusion 360, trying being the operative word! They say 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks' I think they might be correct. 🙂 Sorry Harm, for going 'off piste', but I could not resist it. Mike

    Mike the only time you can't teach a dog a new trick is when they have died.  You just have to want to learn.

    I rather like the smell of old gas,it brings back the memory of when I first got my old car. I bought an old metal has can that smelled that way and thought of charging people 25 cents for a sniff at car shows.

    I will save you some next time I get some.  Will a quart do you.

    Yard art inner tube tire has hole in its side?? Put a boot in it (make your own if have none) paint whatever shows black if wrong color shows....we drove on tires with holes in sides, altho sometimes had to go to reliners or tire-in-tire (hard to do without being bumpy)..

    Doesn't everyone have a few old tire boots in the basement??..

    Make your own boot.  Take some aluminum and pop rivet over the hole and paint black.  Might even start a trend.

  4. The only thing I do different is to take an old spark plug base and throw away the porcelain and put a small balloon over the base.  Screw it into the #1 spark plug hole.  Crank it over and the balloon will inflate on the compression stroke.  I find it easier to watch a balloon then feel the compression with my finger.  Follow Tinindians instructions.

  5. I would install an external strobe light connected to your fire alarm and security system, make sure you install flood lights on each coroner and a motion sensor light over the entrance door.  I would also install a small roof over the door so you do not have water running down your neck while opening the door.  Make sure you have enough service for your welder and run your air lines while you are building

     and make sure you have water taps at each corner of the building.
