Last fall, I put mice poison in the garage, sheds, the boat, and under the hoods of the GTs. Mice ate through some wire insulation under the hood of the wife's car. Acted like a bad transmission problem. Found the problem and spliced the wire. Them guys reproduce real quick. it's no wonder the cats are fat around here.

Been busy around here but I have managed to build a 3ph and a jig to lay invisible dog fence. The jig needs some fine tuning but I got 1000 foot of wire in the ground today. It works best with a 100 lb boy standing on the railroad iron! My carburetor wants to act up once in while, spit and sputter, flood out then settles out and runs good. And I now have a 55 gal. electrolysis tank!

I have recently taken several shrouds off of engines...Every single one had a nest of some sort in it...What is it about these engine that rodents love? I get that they are warm when shut off but usually the rodents move in when they sit for a while.
