GFI's are required in the garages, I would replace them to, or hard wire the welder straight to the panel box ( own breaker )

I'll probably just live the problem, or just replace the one on the 'fridge circuit.

When I was cutting and threading all my pipe, I was using my old Dremel tool to "ream" the ID of the pipe to taper the inside edge. Having a 3-wire plug, it would trip the GFI circuit it was running on, especially if I was really putting force on the grind. "Fixed" that problem by snipping off the plug's ground. Would have used a 3-to-2 plug adapter but my hands were all slathered up with cutting oil and I didn't feel like rooting around for it.

As Paul noted above, they were required.... and that was one of the major things they checked when doing the rough-in and final inspections. They went to each and every receptacle with their tester to make sure the respective GFI on those circuits would trip.

Gawd, that seems like a long time ago..........

You'd think the National Electric Code would have essential equipment like the beer fridge on its own dedicated circuit.

No, but I'd stongly consider it. I've done bits of it in CO and some of the CO section of the Shadow of the Rockies trail. A Belgian couple gave me those maps.

I'd do it. The roll chart drives me crazy but out west it wouldn't be so bad. It might help to have a really nice roll chart, know what I mean? Halfplate Maybe if I bought the maps some kind soul would let me down load the tracks to my Garmin. Seems like riders like a smaller bike on that section but I'd probably lean toward taking my big bike for the ride back. Heck, I would do that this summer, finish it off. I've never been all the way to the west coast. I'm getting ready to pull of the front wheel and send it off to Woody's Wheel works. I've dinged it up and have a ton of weights on it to smooth it out.

Why, you wanting to do it? We could high ball it out to Oklahoma and pick it up there. Check out that Forever West ride. If I don't get lured to another ride, I'd just about do the TAT through Oklahoma into CO. Then pick up that Forever West ride going west to Utah, do the circle clockwise, then ride back. Leaving June 20th?

I won't know for sure until I do my taxes but I am really considering doing just that and on that time line.

Leaving a few days after school lets out and doing the Western 1/2 of the TAT.

Hey MOB....

That old grate section flattened out pretty good with the help of a rosebud torch to apply a little heat:







Corners welded up and just waiting for its frame. Need to p/u some angle iron next week to fab it.

Right now, the dates work for me. I might enjoy making that trip.
That weekend looks good for me Jimmy. I was thinking of tenting it at the hotel site but could go in on a room or just chip in some $ for use of the shower.PM me with your thoughts.

Gotta love the internet

PS That link will also get you all the moto GP races and other cool stuff we can't watch.

If the link says that it is off line it is because the station goes off air during the middle of the night London time.
Their clocks must be stuck 'cause I haven't caught it yet.
