New shop I share with some woodworkers. Besides the dust and cramped space, this place is awesome and Iím lucky to have it. This is me spread out but being that all tables, benches, and jigs/stands are on wheels I can push everything to the side in the evening.

This is me using Wirejocks technique for lining up the baffle, z bracket, ribs. I screwed my first tank up and had to reorder parts and redo. Thank you sir, this worked so well!

Irv! Looking great! I have a power shortage at my hanger and have decided on a modest 3500 Harbor Freight generator should the need arise. I have one 15amp circuit that I am concerned I will trip the breaker on and be stuck one day...Haha
Keep up the good work!

Yea the issue was my compressor. Only need about 3500W to run but would surge up to 9000W to start. You donít want to blow your capacitor like it did.

OUCH!
I have a soft start compressor now...My 2 stage 175psi unit stayed at the house. I am single phase as well so it is a hassle all the way around.

See you on VAF!

Big day. Leak tested and screwed on the left fuel tank. A lot of work came together pretty well.

Second tank went together much smoother and faster. Actually passed leak test with screws not prosealed though Iíll probably cover them eventually just in case.
