Still alive and kicking
Hey gang, just a quick update on the new job. Pushing the 6 month mark and still going at it. They are giving out raises like candy, have 14 electrics quit since I started. The bigger union plants across the river are hiring like mad replacing retires and most are going there. We got bought out by Hitachi shortly after I started, they take over next week.
On the home front, I have replaced our aging HVAC system with a Lenox unit. Liking it so far. This required the removal of the old chimney as it is no longer needed. Got it out and roof patched. Took it out all the way to the basement floor and patched the hole in the floor as well. Going to use the space created in the kitchen closet for a small pantry area. Presently ripping out the bathroom upstairs. Been needing to do that for a few years. Have one more project to start that will require outside work before winter sets in. What I am trying to do is line up some interior winter work for myself.
On the shop front I have switched out all my DeWalt cordless tools with Milwaukee. Got to looking at why some are wearing out and they are from 1995 and newer. Bought a few shop toys and will post later.
Well thats the update for now, time to head in to work.
If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
