Oh, and it never fails, I only went in for epoxy, and the new saw blades seemed to jump in my hand.


On the upside, impulse buys can't be figured into the budget :D

Anchor bolts are in (phew) I may have to re-do the first two, The Anchor adhesive comes with 2 mixing spouts for a reason. I followed the instructions and squezed the gun once and discarded the first batch, then proceeded. I wanted to do this when the sun went down but the prep took longer than planed, any how the tube pluged up on the second hole (epoxy was almost black) I switched to the second tube and the rest went fine. I think I can use the compression bolts on the first two instead of opening the second tube of epoxy. The bolts are at 3" and the drilling went fine. The concrete feels good and stiff, and at 3" the drilling gets labored. I am calling tomorrow to schedule delivery of the tin. Oh and one other thing, I wish I had found these links 6 months ago. I am short on wood for the furings, and there are a lot of good tips.

I'm book marking all of these for reference. This may be a long process over the winter due to funding.

Tomorrow I plan to wire brush all the bolts, then place the bottom wall boards back on to check the fit, and tighten the bolts down to check the hold. I didn't do the front wall where the doors will go. I;ll wait till I have them so I can cut the treated boards to the correct length then anchor them.

I put the bottom boards back on and sinched them up tight. All the bolts are holding well. Tin will arrive next Friday. I plan to get two corner walls up tomorrow. I may have to fight a little to get them lined back up on the anchors, but not too much "hopefully"

All the recharabiles are on charge tonight.

Yes please, I am past the need for concrete help, and I think others want to continue to follow the build. Something like (New Texas Shop) will work as I am using "Texas Man Cave" over there.
