LAST WEEKENDS SHOP ACTIVITY
Friday, I went to a great retirement lunch for a coworker at the Division of Forestry.Â While I was gone the toilets got emptied and the 1231 received fuel, thanks to Tom Nitza. I was also able to pick up a new propane tank for the fork lift so we now have a backup.Â Jeremy and myself worked on getting out trash and straightening out tools.
Saturday, was a Santa day.Â Mid-day George and Tyler showed up and we went to work on the Firebox layout and telltale drilling.Â Most are at least opened to 6 inches in depth. The remaining ones were left so dirt would not collect in them.Â Most of the grid is laid out in the firebox and additional work on a UT test should begin next week.
Sunday more of the same, since I was the backup conductor I did not venture into the firebox.
I should have the supplies and can start on the ultra sound readings next week.Â There is more grid to layout and cleaning of the outer boiler skin.Â
