Never mind about ya boots in the shot. When I take a pic from that angle my atomic gut gets in the way.

Glad you are making progress. May not be the camera causing the blurry shot, it may well be camera shake when you press the button to take the pic or similar. To test this theory sit the camera on a solid surface and take a pic and see how it comes out.

got too many projects going on at the moment, currently 5, maybe 8! I have not quit though! if it turns into 8, 3 of those will take priority, those are paying gigs! 2 dozer work, and the other tractor work clearing land. two different roads to build with the dozer. I am going to knock out the smaller projects first or it going to snowball on me and i will never get caught up.

already snow balling! easy job, well not so easy! put a high bid in today on one of the paying gigs, we will see. waiting on parts for one job, waiting on response on the bid, looks like gonna be wet for a few days. so may be time to get back at welder! stay tuned.

well got the back ache today, so i decided to take on a sit down job on the welder. first coat of locktight liquid tape made its way onto the armature where the insulation is scuffed up. I think I am going to like this stuff, even smells like it is good stuff! its a little messy but it almost looks like the stuff a motor shop would use! its going to get several coats, got to wait a minium of 10 minutes btween coats. i will get some pictures up when its done, may be difficult though its dark in the shop and that armature weighs a ton so it wont get moved just to take some pictures.
