It just shows that it never hurts to ask. I get lots of cool stuff, just by asking "What are you going to do with that"?

Some years back I helped dismantle some stores and brought home a full checkout counter with Cash Register, Register Open/Closed Light, plastic bags and all. Kids had a ball with it... Wife, not so much...

One of our friends got a new fire hydrant from the nearby foundry that makes them. There was a flaw in the casting and failed inspection. It does pay to know people with strange jobs.

G'morning everyone! Long time since I've been here and want to check in again. Hope everyone is doing well after the crazy past year and change. I'm hanging in, was laid off from my job as an amusement park mechanic due to Covid and went back to my prior job at a tourist railroad as their sole electrician. Having fun for the most part and still trying to keep optimistic. Looking forward to coming around some more, I'll have to post up some of my "office" pictures. Take care everyone!!


Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Just wanted to drop by and say hello, I'm still twisting wires together every day. I do mostly service work in residential commercial and industrial for a small shop of 6 guys in the field. Its been busier than normal and we are short manpower. It has been extremely tough the last year or so with the shortage of materials. Our state adopted the 2020 NEC a while back, which means a lot of 2 pole GFCI breakers that need to get installed that are unobtainable. Can't get meter sockets either, and switchgear is a long wait.
