Tuesday day shift

Started by drafting Sheri’s Subaru to haul 18 additional aluminum tubes. We even got Jesykah to look up the highway rules to make sure we were legal (umm… sort of.)

Evan showed up as we were unloading and gave Sheri a two hour welding class. While they worked I fixed some of …

Gone on a bender

Tubing bender modification

We tried every way we knew how. Nothing seemed to work. Well, we are makers. Let’s make it work.

It took Sheri and I over two hours to bend this circle. Sheri damaged her wrist and I almost blew out my elbow.
