    Re: The Boinc Bar!

    OK, been busy!
    First, got the workbench done in the shop:
    I got a premade counter top 10' was the longest and although 12 may have fit, it was fine.


    Gorilla Glue is your friend!


    On the wall!


    Mounted to the wall, worked real slick. Used construction adhesive as well.


    Legs on and already cluttered!

    Re: The Boinc Bar!

    Ma was so proud, she put me right on the next 'project'; pedestals under washer/dryer. Sounds easy, right? Crap, those things are heavy, I'm not getting any stronger and it all requires contortions I used to save for the backseat of a VW bug....NO, no pictures of any of that, past or present!

    just the finished product. These are a back saver and it's nice to have decent plastic lined drawers, too!

    Re: The Boinc Bar!

    I'm almost tired of just posting, but these 4 day off deals are waaaay too productive!

    Now on to my project, mounting the Porsche hard top on the wall. Since the tire caddy fits under the bench, the hard top fit on that before but not any more.

    Had some time to lay it out and look at everything and barring wife not coming home to help me lift it, I've got it securely mounted and ready to go. I took lots of pics.

    Mounting bars as they will be on hard top:


    Bottom detail:


    Hardware:



    I want to put it here:


    The two hoseclamps mount the top and lag into a stud. Hey, the whole thing hangs on 2 screws, so I was careful to get some real 'meat'.

    And here it is:

    Gorilla Glue? I'd prefer Walters Goo, Much better stuff, Google It to find It or go to Your local hobby store that sells model trains. The Original Whistlestop in Pasadena CA sells It of course, Used to buy lots of HO Scale stuff from there too, Before I moved into the Desert of course. I guess that makes Me a retired Train Frog(for the moment at least). Still UB that does look real nice.

    Re: The Boinc Bar!

    Gorilla is awesome for the kind of laminating, joining and attaching of structural wood, the Walters is fine, I'm sure but I haven't used it and when I Googled "Walters Goo", uh, errr, ummm well it was sticky alright, but not what you were thinking!

    Here's something that would blow everything out of the water, along with the planet too I might add:

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/space/0....ap/index.html

    A star 7.5 billion light years away exploded, giving off the
    brightest gamma-ray burst afterglow ever seen.
    Note: It was 40 times as big as Our Sun.

    Be careful doing things like that. You don't want one of those unintended vacations like I had.

    Why do You think I gave You a link to one of the places that sells It, It comes in a tube like tooth paste does, Although You'd look kinda funny with a toothbrush stuck to your teeth.

    I sent ours (pedestals) back. A concrete floor will be fine. Mine are in the house, in a laundry room, and the spin cycle on wood framed floor was just too much.

    It worked great. Our laundry is a 'mud room' wit lots of counter top and a nice sink. No bad vibes here. WHile I was at it, I replaced the water hoses with 2500 psi braided ones. Replacing every 5 years is a good idea, I'm told.
