The grit guard looks like it would work fantastic for letting Littleneck (steamer) clams purge sand before eating them. I have a metal grate, which works, but the whole salt water wanting to rust everything it gets near is rearing it’s ugly head. Usually rake clams and leave them to purge in saltwater for 2 days (I change the water daily).

I bought myself a used PS3 Slim console & controller.

I haven't bought a video game system in many years, and I'm excited!

Looks like a good game.

I'll probably check it out sooner or later, but my favorite genre is JRPG's, which is why I chose the PS3 over the XB360.

trying pics once again with new post
If this dont work Google changed things since I last used photos. No other host setup at this time.

Got a 24 pack of LED tubes to swap out the florescent T12 in grage.
Got the 3000K ballast bypass, 18W per tube.
Pretty sweet IMO. Much brighter that the dual 40W tubes, warmer too.
Not done wiring and installing all the fixtures I have but 14 tubes used so far. 10 to go. Will also be splitting the circuit 50/50 or front and rear. Too hot lately to get up in the second floor. Big garage 25×50, second floor is 12×50.


This pic is lit with 6 tubes, one 2 tube fixture on the side and a 4 tube fixture in the middle with a diffuser lens

First pic the white balance corrected too much and the second looks more yellow than actual… Somewhere in between these 2 pics better describes the 3000K tint. Pretty pleasing to the eye and bright enough to work under. But the clear lens does make you see spots if you happen to look into the light. Why I used diffused fixtures directly over the work area.

woohoo…

Thanks for the confirmation. will delete the other post 386

Bus is a cheap and bad repaint. Looks like the paint mixer put a few too many drops of blue tint in the mix. Gave it a slight purple hue and the oxidization of the paint makes it look worse. Should be a deep darker red but not quite maroon. Everyone asks when are you gonna paint it. I cant because it would get messed up the first day. Its a truck to me. Just had a board fall into it the other week.scratched it but it dont matter. Garage has big 16ft and 14 ft doors ar each end. Had them both open and a good breeze came through and caught the board before I got back to get it. The drive through garage doors are pretty darn sweet especially in the direction of the wind. I need paper weights, chasing paper towels and plastic bags around outside gets old.

Better pic of what color the bus should be.Dash redone, old phone with broken cam…

After waiting 2 and a half months, my custom made Kiesel bass on the left finally arrived. It was well worth the wait. It plays like butter and sounds great.

Oohhh, nice one Glenn. 2 and a half months is not that bad. So can you hear the bass is brighter due to the maple board?

Thanks, pal. As far as being brighter, it’s hard to tell because my other basses (Except for the Jack Casady bass, which has the stock strings on it, have GHS Super Steels on them. They are extremely bright. I’ll let you know when I change my strings. The stock strings sound amazing though.

Here’s a closeup of the birdseye maple headstock. The neck has the same finish.

I’ve heard that tune before. Excellent solid bass line.

Got a newly released hinged cover for my Blackstone outdoor griddle. It’s great for steaming veggies, melting cheese on a burger, etc.

I based my purchase on the reviews I’ve read. I’m sure I’ll be happy.

Why thank you! That said, there are plenty of good reviewers on here. But then again, I’ve been into tools since the mid-1960’s since my dad owned a Hardware Store. Actually, he owned one since 1955. I just didn’t get into the hardware thing till I was 13 years of age. I’ll let you know what I think.

No disrespect intended to any others. I do know there is a very real difference between tool owners and tool users though.. Also any more pictures of recent creation on your grill will be greatly enjoyed.

Nice scenery alert at 1:29 and 2:29! Big Smile

Funny, I just knocked off a coupla Warsteiner Dunkels, almost frozen to slush. Yummm!

I could go for some of those burgers, dogs, and brats, though.

Picked this up from Walmart last week, for use with a little portable camping stove. It worked well for making scrambled eggs, boiling water, and reheating stuff last weekend, and it looks like it will last a pretty long time. Never used this kind of fuel before. Always had the pure propane canisters before. Propane is usable down to a lower temp, but as long as temp is above freezing, butane/propane mix works fine.

And here is the stove:

Some stoves feed the fuel with a loop first over the flame and burn it afterwards.
That helps in cold weather.
This is a extreme example: https://www.msrgear.com/stoves/windpro-ii
It is made for liquid feeding.

Hi Pete, I never heard of Butane/Propane mix. The burner looks great. Enjoy!
