Yesterday, I pulled into our container yard to drop a chassis and pick up a load and found out the top pick, basically a huge machine that lifts and stacks shipping containers had broken. Well, I was good on hours and there was a miller engine drive and some 7018's there. There wasn't much to prep it with but I cleaned it up as well as I could and started running beads. It wasn't ideal I but I got it back up and running and trucks moving again.

This isn't the actual machine but one like it.

Bought a 65" LG UHD 4K TV and brought it home and installed it. Man what a great picture. Was watching some Nat Geo programming and the detail is incredible. Sound was a little tinny so I went back and got the sound bar with subwoofer. Now it's a treat for the eyes and the ears. It replaced a non HD 52" that we had mounted above the fireplace. I'm not sure we're actually getting 4K but whatever it is looks wonderful.

A little revision. I'm not happy with the sound coming from the soundbar. No matter what adjustments I make it sounds like the actors are phoning in their lines. And the subwoofer doesn't hit the bass the way I like. I liked my old Polk Audio soundbar better. But it doesn't have an optical input. I may have to get an adapter to see if that will work. Uhg! now I have to box up the LG soundbar so I can return it.

Thank you. The angle and flat stock are 1/8 and all the tubing is 14 gauge, all stick welder. The wood is 2x6's from the old fence that I plained down. That part worked out really well since the inside of the gate measures 60.5" and the old 2x6's are 5.5" wide so 11 pieces fit perfectly without trimming and also made spacing the holes in the steel simple.

It is definitely not light as the wood adds a lot of weight but it does swing easily.

The latch is made of 1" angle, 5/8 round, 2" angle to latch to, and obviously a horseshoe. The piece on the end where it latches is also a piece of horseshoe. Using 1" angle, because I already had some, made cutting out the carrier or whatever you want to call it much easier and let me tighten it up a little vs using a piece square tubing.
