Need to wire my compressor back up now that it is relocated.

Then move the blaster and reassemble that.

Do you find the bead blaster handy? Is that for nasty metal or do you use it for other things?

I can totally see this little guy having a successful modeling and/or acting career.

Progress is being made to the paint room reconfiguration and prep for new building.

This years KBS seems better than last years based off memory.
CBS seems to be a little smoother though.

Microwave stops working
Pull it off the wall and put it on the temporary work bench 9F8FA44C-21D6-4B32-A22E-7C4FF699AD45 (resized).jpeg
Open it up. 4B682FAB-5B14-483D-9653-3BD9D2A2EEB4 (resized).jpeg

It is likely just a switch.
There are three one is tied to the light which was working so rule that out, the other looks to drive the timer which is working.
The upper is believed to handle the heat and turn table which are not.

37DB782F-F3B2-4689-A40A-0192C2A7413E (resized).jpeg

Clean and blow it out.
Remount microwave.
All is well. Cost $0
New exact replacement $750 plus tax.

Time for a new battery and mount it off the board.

I missed the post where the parts for the microwave were tumbled, spray painted some awesome colors, and other parts sent off to be plated.

I'll bet the wiring is a lot neater than the factory if nothing else...

#2866 2 days ago

Compressor is wired and plumbed back and running.
Goal is to get the paint shop functional again during the construction of the new addition.

#2867 2 days ago

Paint shaker ,36 paper holder and vice are relocated. image (resized).jpg

Power from old section redirected into a new outlet for the compressor dryer and a power strip. Tumblers are relocated here from the larger building.

18, Thumlers is the only way to go. I love mine.

Definitely pricey though. My dillon cv-2001 crapped out after many years so I tried the thumlers uv18 because I hoped they were quieter, they definitely are but not as big as the dillon. Not sure of they perform any better but time will tell, just got it. I'm splurging for the UV 45, hoping I can do bigger parts in it. Wish I had a bead blaster like Chris but haven't figured out what they work best on.

After years of trial and error I settled on the Thumlers about 10 years ago.
The 18s are the most universal.
I have killed numerous Dillons and even two Thumler UV 45s so I gave up tumbling parts that large and just have those nickel plated or manually polish them myself.

I can't wait till my property is all dried out. It looks like absolute trash right now.

The guy taking out the bushes is named Steve. Nothing says Kill Bushes Steve like KBS.

Special Whirlwind is done.
Hopefully I can get it outside for final pictures.

Any source for the Whirlwind apron cards? I’d like to put them on mine.

Ready to start stripping the IJ playfield. This one is really rough in the wiring. Everything was spliced inches from the source.
This is a prime example of a restoration that actually did more damage than upgrading.

Looks great! What happened with all the different coin door paint options? Looks like just a slate grey.
