He told me that he was so busy he had to take three guys with him just to finish all the work of his mobile car washing route so he could have enough time to do details in the afternoon. Apparently Santa Barbara was in a significant drought situation, and the car wash had been rationed for water. Each morning he would drive down to Ventura fill up his water tanks and drive back because he wasn't allowed to fill up the water tank in Santa Barbara due to the Level III Drought in his area.
Wind generators can be tower mounted or mounted to the roof of a building, as a house, shed or barn. Using a tower mount is the most expensive but puts less wear and tear on a roof. Probably, depending on the type, the roof wear would not amount to the several thousand dollars extra invested in a tower. Also location of the buildings, wind speed and trees, etc will help determine where to place the generator. A wind speed test will need to be preformed before the exact location is found.
So last weekend I ventured to Harbor Freight to pick up their little 8 pound inverter welder. I spent $200 though because I needed a good autodarkening helmet, a chipping hammer, and some magnets. I got the 2 year warranty just in case. Yes I know, many people like to give the Chinese welders a bad rap. But let me just say that this little welder is quite good considering the money. It is not meant for the professional welder who does structural work but for art purposes it suits me fine. I am using 6013 1/16 " electrodes at this time. I have noticed they are a bit shallow and sometimes on small joints I have to go over them because the first time it is only flux that really lays down. Any civilized suggestion is appreciated.
Table saw: 10 inch cabinet saw, not one of those little saws that set on a table top, Again find a second hand saw, 2 to 5 horse power and a simple fence is all you need. so long as the blade can be squared up and the fence can be adjusted true. rust can be overlooked, and belts can be replaced. One thing here to spend money on is the blade, carbide tipped 50 to 60 tooth spend $50.00 to $70.00. you will want two $50.00 blades not one $100.00 blade. One blade is either at the saw sharpener or ready to go the sharpener. point is a sharp lower cost blade is a lot better than dull $150.00 blade.
For the top shelf I cut a piece of 1/2" plywood to fit to lay a sheet of glass on for my palette. The whole system is very sturdy and rolls easily (the wheels do lock in place if I want). I have ample space for mixing my paint and storage of brushes, large tubes of oil paint, and solvents and medium. I even found a plastic sheet cover that slides right over the whole cart when I'm not using it. I'm planning to paint the plywood a medium gray and want to get a bigger sheet of glass for the palette. I figure I'll also add some offset clips or mirror clips to hold the glass in place on the plywood.
The grommet gives us a strong anchor point without worrying about any tearing or ripping or having nails or staples pull away from the wall from it's weight. A small round punch is used to make a perfect circle. I use a small scrap of plywood underneath the cutting operation so as not to dull the cutter. A steel base with 1/2 the grommet poking through the hole is placed below the cardboard. The other 1/2 of the grommet is placed on top of this with a steel punch made to curl the soft metal grommet in the base then smacked with a hammer till it seats down. Do not beat the piss out of it since the grommet since it crimps itself onto the cardboard. You would wind up with an even bigger hole that I'm not quite sure they make grommets for.
