Got The Boyz Off.

Got the boyz out of the house around 10:30, they were headed to the market to see ThunderCloud before heading south to visit Seth in Corvallis.

In some ways, nice to have the house back to myself – now I just need to do many, many loads of laundry – sheets from two beds and all the other stuff that is piling up.

Managed to make it over to Jim’s to pick up the electric burner for the still, but no time today to try it out.

I did get some work done on the dining platform and I learned the following:

  • Yes, my old multi-meter just had a dead battery – thanks JoeFico for the new fancy one
  • No, the batteries aren’t holding a charge so it looking like it’s going to be expensive
  • That there is a safety switch that basically keeps the lift from moving unless it’s closed (but a squeeze clamp bypassed that)
  • That it’s no fun to work in a confined space doing electrical work – had to put on a new terminal end

End result – more work to do, most likely involving 4 expensive batteries and more working in a confined space.

Quite dinner at home after what seems like a week of entertaining.

Off to a wedding tomorrow.
