Nothing to see here. Powder coater was supposed to call and didn't. A bit disappointed, but I'll give him the benefit of doubt this time.
I kept myself entertained in the garage putzing around with small projects thinking I'd be building freshly coated panniers.
I play around with scrap .080" 5052 aluminum to make the next gizmo.
More welding on the latest gizmo.
...my low-budget, sit-on-my-butt tungsten grinding set up!
1/4 hp, single phase motor out of an old HVAC indoor unit. Now I have a guard and a place to keep pointed-up tungstens for the inevitable crashes.
Bummed about the coater, but tomorrow is another day.
