Looking good Kenny. If you need bi-focals you can get what we call cheaters to put inside your helmet. I'v used them for yrs. When i run mig i always use the nozzle to shield the glare. Also you can never have enough clear lens on hand.

Just a few more things to finish up. I did get an electric outlet installed above the E-tank location for the charger. Got some of my shelving placed and saved some of the lumber I had for future shelving needs. Spent most of yesterday finding homes for things so I could top the weeds in the yard.
On the smoker hiding in behind, the bottom is rusted thru. I plan to cut some of the good metal out for a mid-mount grader blade. The small firebox is still useable, may use it for heating heavy metal to bend. Not sure at this time. I have no use for something that large any more.
We have good chances for rain the first of the week, so I need to arrange a bit more. I will have to take the mower off the Cub. It's a bit wide for fitting the tractors under the roof.

You have done a great job,Kenny. Can't wait to see the "completely finished" photos.

Those may be a while off yet, but I'll see about getting some of what I have done inside so far. Still a lot of thinking about if what I put where is going to be the final spot. So much to do, so little time!

It looks much larger than your old port and brighter as well. I've spent a lot of time lately trying to fit everything in my garage for the winter. It takes a long time to get things organized when you have limited space but it's worth it in the end. I have completely changed how I store stuff in the end of my garage and it now looks like it's all going to fit, which I didn't think was possible when I started.

Thanks, Brian. I think the higher, white ceiling helped a lot. Seems cooler on the warm days we have had.

Got a few pics of the insides. Thought you might want to look. The first 3 were taken from the East side looking into the area, just to orientate yourself.

I decided to fill the holes around the floor blocks, so got out the mortar and sand, mixed it up dry, then worked all I could into the holes and cracks. Got the Ford out and ran it back and forth across, then swept in all I could. Hosed it down and waiting for it to dry.

Once this has had time to set up, Kenny's 'Tractor Port' will be open for business ( in more than one way).:bigrofl:

Just an update on the welding helmet. I went to get the argon/CD, took the helmet apart and got the plastic lenses out. It was very dusty in there. Got new plastic lenses for front and rear. My helmet will not accept the magnification lens. They tried to sell me glasses, told them that was what I was wearing, didn't need more. Hope to do a little welding tomorrow. Should be able to see much better.

You should find a terrific improvement with clean new lens!

I didn't realize they would get so dirty. Even the autodarkening unit was covered with dust.
