Most of these I did a little while back, but was booted out of my shop by the lack of room because of Ken's sh*t :lol: He seems to be gathering more things that need to go into the shed, (i.e. like the power washer I found while dumpster diving) making it difficult for me to get in there; not to mention, we were working on the deck, etc. I also was cutting with a bit that needed sharpening badly. So to the sharpening man they went, and I didn't get back in there till yesterday afternoon.

Last weekend, Ken got in the shed, and did some major rearranging. I put the new screen door we bought early summer up in the attic of the shed that was taking up considerable amount of room, (until we figure out what we're gonna do with the color of the house.) Then Ken went to work on moving cabinets, counters, and stands around (as well as organizing his many plastic tool containers) in hopes of getting me in there.

Anyway, with the exception of the address sign for Ken's aunt, these were done before Ken's sh*t got out of hand in the shed. The address sign I did today, and I'll post the stained version when it's done. It was good to get back in my little shop, if only for a little bit. We're taking Dad to N.Y. this coming weekend, and I needed to get the sign done to take with us.

Great work Barb.

Tell Ken that we think your quality of work deserves more space. It probably won't help, but it's worth trying. If not, maybe you can talk him into getting another shed for his ****. Probably not, but it's worth trying. Nobody gets in my shop but me and #2 son, so most of the time it's "my stuff" that is in my way, and I can't blame anyone else for it.

It was George Carlin who did the skit about "other peoples ****, and your stuff" and not Bill Cosby, but both were very funny comedians.

Thanks everyone. Most of them, the lettering could be better, but I was working with a bit that was dull, and hard to keep in line.
@CharleyL Ken wants another shed, and I want another shed to put his sh*t in, but money is the issue. (A major issue at the moment... gonna cost between $400 and $600 for the tune up on the truck tomorrow. As it is, Ken's dad is helping us with it... it's a 2007 5.4 Triton motor, before y'all go bonkers over the cost of a lousy tune-up :lol: Anyone who doesn't know about the Triton, the plugs have a tendency to break off when you try and remove them, and then a special tool has to be utilized to remove said broken plug deep in the cylinder. It's a royal p.i.t.a.) Anyway, soon as we can get a second shed to hold his stuff, we're gonna get one.

Bummer on that triton plug issue. i understand there are some 1 piece plugs that should be used for the replacement to avoid fractures in the future.
The problem is that the resistor below the plugs gets too hot, causing expansion, and when the plugs get removed, they break at the "burn bead" as my co-worker calls it. He also said it has to do with having aluminum heads, I want to say. With the plugs, there's only one plug that doesn't have that "burn" on it, and it's by Bosch I want to say. The place I took the truck assures me that next tuneup, the breakage won't happen. We shall see.

Sounds like you have a good understanding of the problem. Good luck with the outcome.

In the for what it's worth category, a friend who owns a Nissan pickup recently had a spark plug break off while the engine was running. Again a combination of the plug design and aluminum head.
