Getting shop vac parts.

I have two different brands of shop vacs. One is in the attic/workshop for DH to vac up the sawdust I keep two filters for each one. That way when the filter needs to be rinsed out I have a dry spare..

Good Moring;
Good group showed up for the Wavenator Performance yesterday.

After the desert group left we tried to get out on the motorbikes for a ride. Did not get far as the 20 mph wind made the ride not so pleasant. Spent the day chillin' at the coach.

Still windy today but going to Mexico. Going to get a haircut. My favorite cutter got married and moved to another town. Now the search is on for a skilled replacement.

Have a great day.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

Amazon has them.

I have one on order from Amazon, but has not shipped on 10 days. Thanks.

51+53 All rain but only till noon. The orb appeared for 10 minutes before setting into more clouds.

If you put some paper towel over a shop vac filter with rubber bands ,you would just need to tear off a fresh sheet and replace.
The quicker picker upper.....
(this doesn't work so well with the wet stuff )

Orrin
You might be able to sell more of those cards if you have any...

Poured first cup of hot coffee. 15 with clear skies this morning. Heading to 38 with lots of sun. Finished making all the parts for Mule pole support yesterday. Got all the parts laying out to paint. May get to that today. Off to do last of my Thanksgiving shopping this morning. Then see what I will do rest of the day.
Got a little sun on Sunday. Took this Tufted Titmouse with that sun.

Hmm, missed another posting yesterday.

Everyone stay healthy and safe.

Good Morning All.

Good morning. Popeye and Moose, thanks for sharing. Ronj, great pic. 19 here headed to 43, dry.

I think I have solved my problem of the broken axel bracket.
I replied on another thread as another rv'er had a similar problem.

https://www.irv2.com/forums/f115/axl...ay-561082.html

Anyway, been talking to all of my old trucking buddies (25 years ago) and going to see people and show pictures. Then I thought of my friend who fixed my chassis a/c and he said he could do it. Take 2-3 days. The axel has to come out to be welded properly. So, I am a: dance: camper. I had 2 quotes of $5k, but I know Scott will be a lot less. He works T&M and is a great fabricator. Life is good.

Damage in BC

Watched some news reports from BC. Wow what a horrible storm!!! More rain is on the way. Can only imagine what it is like to loose your home/business. Prayers for sure. Gordon is this near you?

Drinking first cup of coffee. 31 with clear skies this morning. Heading to 45 with mostly cloudy skies. Shopping went well yesterday. Did not get to painting done yesterday. Made sure all outside water taps had been shut off at valves inside house. Then started cleaning house. Will get that finished today. May get to Mule pole rack painted today.


Orrin, good you have a plan to repair axle bracket.

Popeye, hope you are staying warm.

Everyone stay safe and healthy.

Good Morning All.

Good Morning;
Ann - no it is quite a ways from us. I have been in an area where we had two 1 in 100 year events within 10 years. It is sad when this happens but it is expected to happen. One could build to prevent the damage but it would be so expensive that it could not be built.

We have some friends who live close to the affected area but they are down in Yuma. Moose is still on the island and trying to get to his motorhome so they can head south.

Janet is having her Red Hat chapter over for a get together today so I am going to have to go and do some retail therapy. And I get to take her car!

Have to go and get some chairs for the event so am on my way.

Have a great day.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

Well I am going to start early and say Hope everyone has a HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

Orrin, You are right it just looks like realey realey bad welding. Absolutely no penetration. On the pictures you linked to yes that one look's cracked but should be a fairly simple fix.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to the Good Morning group. Gordon glad you aren't affected with torrential rain at your home. Several places near us get pounded with water that goes over the break wall. We were very fortunate when we had a heavy rain this summer that our sump pump kicked in. Just a small amt. of water in the basement. Every think is up on treated lumber. Come to think about storms USA has had way too many weather incidents this year. Praying Moose can get out of Dodge. Had the granddaughter over to make cutout Christmas cookies. Have some dough for another batch. Take care, Ann

Poured first cup of coffee. 39 with light rain this morning. Heading to 46 with rain most of the day. Got house cleaned. Then painted Mule pole rack. Still waiting on some parts to assemble it. Son is coming to my place for Thanksgiving dinner. Not your traditional dinner. Lasagna, Garlic Toast and Apple pie. Some in family do not like Turkey and Pumpkin pie. Got Detroit Thanksgiving Parade all set to set to record on DVR. Should be a nice afternoon.
Everyone Have a Happy Thanksgiving Day.


Everyone stay healthy and safe.

Good Morning All.
