Clearly made the right decision.  Today I accomplished depositing the bonus check that I randomly got from work that completely offset what I paid in tuition yesterday.

Fired up the foundry for the first test run today.  Ended up going beyond testing to full on production of Aluminium Ingots and even dared to go into Brass territory. 

Lesson learned, I build flame throwers way more badass than other people.  Which means I need to start building crucibles that are way more bad ass.  2200 F flames + crucible rated 1800 F ish = some cracking.

What are you doing with the ingots?

What are you doing with the ingots?
  I simply melted down random scrap into ingots that are sized to go back into the cuppola.  The point being that every time you melt/pour metal, it tends to become a little bit purer. (If you do it right)   Also, it makes it easier to store. 
So in future, I know that when I add an ingot to the foundry, every ingot of Aliminium I add will be about 1lb.  Plus a small pile of ingots look more impressive sitting on a shelf than a barrel in the side yard full of scrap  :)


Today, I modified the burner to hopefully be more efficient!  Don't know if I'll get around to testing that this weekend or not though.

Nice!
I discovered a metal-fatigue break on one of the crews holding the electric winding magazine for my airsoft M240B and trying to dissassemble the magazine, I accidentaly broke the wires going into one of the power connectors. But I plan to build my own magazine out of the parts anyway because the original BB holder was cardboard and I want something a bit more moisture resistant...

Helped a buddy score a nice tool find.  $475(u.s) horizontal metal band saw for just $40.

The key to a successful negotiation strategy is to be polite, be punctual, be persuasive, be persistent and annoy the PISS out of the person you're tying to buy from so that they just give in to get rid of you.

This is a decent thread.

I caused two of my subordinates to have their names read for their positive contributions in a company-wide meeting.

Modified the welder cart to fit the new plasma cutter as well.  (AWESOME.)  And replaced the leaky compressor regulator I've been putting up with in the shop for months. And did a lot of shop clean up/organizing.  A clean shop is soooo nice.

I made some tea and listened to the Drifters.  Now I suppose I should study for a final, but I really don't wish to.
