Bet that feels like an accomplishment!

Did you draw from a house breaker or install a new line power point?

My wife stopped fussing about new tools many years ago when she saw what could be done with them. If we ever have a zombie outbreak she will stop fussing about new guns

It feels more like a relief than an accomplishment. I no longer have to worry about getting this done before fall gets here!!!!!

I ran it from an outdoor panel below my meter. So now I have 10 120V outlets and two 240V. And more importantly I have light! I put in four 4' long 2 bulb t8 florescent lights.

So now I have to figure out which of the many projects on my to do list is going to be next? So many projects so little time. But knocking out some of those projects just became a lot easier!!!!!!!

Sooo, did you dig that trench with a hand shovel? Sorry, couldn't resist.

I am proud to say that I did NOT dig it by hand!

I had actually dug a trench by hand from my shed to the back of my house when I was planning on running a line from a breaker in my main panel but then I decided to run it to the outside panel below my meter. The outside panel was twice as far and that extra distance was over some very hard dry ground. That was a no brainer; I rented a trencher!

Like I said before I'm not at all opposed to technology. But had the ground over that extra distance been as soft as the previous ground I would have happily used a spade and trenching shovel.

Tandy,here, was having leather working classess about the time my left hand and arm and disc acted up. I think Iwill go back and give it another try. One you get the basics where you can manipulate them for the desired effect it's licked. Thinking of taking this holster, I bought apart and tooling it and lining it and polishing the edges better. Not sure it would work though. Be hard to get even color again.
