Workshop "Ambience" !


Even tho it's OSB and not drywall, I'm sure that Amigo Rat and the rest of Y'all will appreciate this little addition to my shop.  Probaby should have posted this somewhere else but WTH !  OH, and YES I'm leaving it just as is but will paint around it so it becomes a reminder to me and my short temper.  I may even hang a frame over it.  biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Oh, I've got the temper but I ran out of "steam" after trying to get my hammer head out of the hole in the OSB.

When I was hanging sheetrock in the Rockies and a finisher started giving us crap about the way we were hanging the drywall then we would leave one of those hatchet head holes in a hard to get to but well lighted place for them to worry with.  Usually a lighted window wall worked the best because you have to make sure it's slick or it will show.

You Too huh!!!!!!!!biggrin

 We had a nailer that left clickers in the most un-able-to get-to places, and the tapers got to the point that they wouldn't even try to fix the screw-ups, because he did it on purpose to Piss off a certain taper,, ( that was the BEST taper we had,) and had repeatedly ask him to do a better job, but instead he left a big  mess for the tapers,, which in turn cost ME money,, so I fired his ass ( the nailer) so he filed for unemployment on me, but if you are fired you couldn't draw unemployment, so he went without a job for quite some time, ,I think he eventually left for somewhere nio one knew him

confuseconfuseWhat'choo talkin' 'bout?  Temper!  Har.  I like those tales.  I made many holes in walls, a few like that in sheathing or drywall; only problem was that I had to fix them, too.  That sucked.  I also made a lot of gravel out of concrete blocks and other sorts of masonry when I'd try to fit an odd piece, measure and mark, check and study it, cut it, and it would be backwards or just plain off one way or another.  Usually, about the third time it didn't fit, I'd grab the five pounder and make some little pieces out of the big pieces, go have a beer and a smoke, and then go at it again.  There are a fair number of hammer brands in the framing of quite a few commercial buildouts and custom homes in Southern California, and power poles  and other installations all over three states, too.

I like the idea of putting a frame around it, Em.

is that osb or sob ? hahaha. i used some osb on my dads house in 89. its saggin between the rafters now and has ben a long time. its only ever had one layer of comp on it. i like plywood better for deckin but i see osb even on subfloors nowadays.the general rule around here is 3/4"osb sub floors when usin 3/4 floorin such as oak. not that thin fake stuff.i never used anything for subfloors but 1 1/4" plywood. things are changin faster than i can keep up. the homes are not as well built either. you should see the things i find in some upper end homes. pure junk and no dang craftsmanship at friggin all.the dang lumber sux too. that force grown pine aint worth a crap.i have to dig through a dang bundle of 2x12's just to get a few decent boards for beams.i hand pick all the lumber i buy at the lumber yards. you just cant order a load of lumber these days. too much junk in it.i'll shut up now. im just havin trouble swallerin some of these new ways of buildin. hahaha. no wonder these dang new homes are fallin apart in a few years.. its a dang shame.

 It's the thought that counts - - - biggrin

I can't even leave a good mistake alone - - - - I've been painting the OSB this morning and damned if I didn't roll the white paint right over my boo boo - - - if I can figure out how to print this master piece and get it in the frame along side of the hole then that will be even better.


I've gone thru a gallon of "cheap" (note that word) WallyWorld interior white and still haven't gotten all of it covered - - - 3 walls have two coats and need another so it's back to "China R US" for another gallon.  Sure wish I had an ACE hwd close by - - - I really like their paint and have had good luck with all of it in the past.

 

Come'on ADVIL !!!

 

MEGO, I'm using 1/4" and it very well may come back and haunt me later but fund$$$$$$ are a major issue with this project so hopefully it will be OK - - -

 

Rumbler, I think I'm gonna borrow that word "Hammer Brand" that you used - - - - it kinda takes the anger and temper away and makes it seem like you were just marking the spot (unlike a dog does) and calling it your own, so to speak - - - ya reckon???

 Heck, Meller, you can have it; there's plenty to go 'round.  As to calling it my own, I'd be a really rich man if I had those many places and things.

I once thought about cutting my inital in the knurled face on my framing hammer; make it a bit more personal.

Starting to feel like home now !


When I asked my son if I could borrow his tiller, little did I know that I would be overhauling the carb and trying to get it started because it wouldn't start for him the last time. I hate working on the little Briggs engines.

is the problem with the tiller caused from leaving it  with gas in it for a while?

I had that problem with a weed eater, and use this stuff

http://www.b3cfuel.com/products/mechanic-in-a-bottle/  works like a champ, just drain all the old gas out of the tank,, pour this stuff in the tank,, and prime it into the carb and let it set overnight or longer,, then pour the remainder out and add gas, worked great for me,, you might have to replace the fuel lines and the primer bulb thingy   cause that eathonal eats up those rubber parts,, and gums up the carb,,,,

You described the problem to a T, Amigo.  It does need new fuel lines and a primer bulb for sure.  The primer line was mashed together in the middle and the bulb doesn't work at all.  The lines are so small that the clamps are those that you squeeze together with pliers to take off and they really suck.  I'll probably do all that tomorrow and see if it helps.
