diagonally speaking...














Late start today ....chasing down breakfast and the mailman took up most of the morning. Borrowed a grinder from my closest neighbor and got to cutting away on the steel. The two sections of diagonal bracing got notched and spliced as planned. Used a narrow width cutting wheel with the loaner/grinder and just followed the marks. I must say that I am quite pleased with how they came together with just a tiny bit of finessing. Welded the parts together and finished off the day cutting the rest of the vertical support pieces. 48,65,37,0

The cutoff wheels are great for a lot of stuff. I usually buy them in bulk though because they don't usually last very long.

Looking good John! Looks like it is going to stay for a very long time. I notice the payphone good place for it and I like the company that put it there. Are we going to put some Christmas decorations on the Small House? Merry Christmas! A red suite and you could be a Santa Clause, Ho Ho Ho.
