E76 – Ali is learning to weld

The build is fast approaching, and I’m going to need to know how to weld for a small portion of it. I’m just experimenting at this point and trying to sort out how it all works!

Ep 75 – Making Better Use of Our Vertical Space

Mike’s Mom is coming to town, and I wanted to make sure she had a place to unpack her clothes, so it was time to find a solution for our lack of closet space!

Trespassers and the Stupid Tractor.

Today wasn’t a very good day, ladies and gentlemen. The tractor has just… we’re so frustrated. We can’t do anything with the thing, and when it snows a lot, we just aren’t going anywhere if we want to get back up the driveway. 
Add to that the feeling of violation that comes with discovering that someone has just helped themselves to a tour of your entire property and then slipped off into the snow. So security is back in place.

Ali Learns to Weld! (video)

This was kind of a huge deal for me. I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time, but I’ve been kind of a chicken about it. It looks like crap of course, but I learned a lot, and I’m ready to practice making lines on bits of metal in the future to practice. The important thing was that I faced my anxiety and I just went for it!

Making of a Mallet – A Fail Story (Video)

I attempted to make my first tool recently, but it didn’t go as I’d planned. That’s okay though because I learned a lot from the experience, and I discovered that this is something that I really want to keep pursuing. I found the experience to be relaxing in spite of set backs. I have so many ideas that I want to try. Most likely I will do this again in the not too distant future with either a different kind of wood or else I might try my hand at gluing something up and learning more techniques. 10/10 will do again.

Chisels and Memorials (Video)

A little bonus video this week. This was a few months ago, maybe June? I was learning to use chisels and such and carved a little recess for the plaque on William’s bench. A lot of it is Mike teaching me to use tools.

Our Tractor, One Eye

It’s time for our weekly video!

In this week’s video, we are trying to get One Eye running. One Eye is our 1950 Ford 8N tractor. We got her in June 2017, and she ran roughly, but she ran. She crapped out shortly after we got her, and sat dormant for awhile.

We replaced the cylinder head, head gasket, sediment bowl, carburetor, distributor, rubber fuel line (with hard line), and eventually the battery before she came back to life.
