If switching over to plastic for everything is good enough for industry, then it's good enough for DIY...

The idea is that stiction takes over... first was only going to use it for a spacer for the replacement blower for the truck cab heat/AC...

But after the crap version of the replacement push clips I was able to get my hands on failed, I noted that after sitting on the shaft for even just a few seconds, the spacer became nearly impossible to move... So I cut another one and used it instead of the clip... We'll see how it goes haha

No more "Oh $#!+ clips" for me! LOL ;D

Things are just done *differently* in the northeast...

After some serious juggling and the guy in the van finally bailing, and a few other significant signs of humanity at its finest... Somehow, this [expletive deleted] wally world truck driver made the turn... Somehow... lol

3 blocks down at the end of the same road, yet another photo opportunity... yes, that's a bridge, being constructed "within" the old one underneath it. The yellow tube on one side of one of the new concrete pillars is one of many massive jacks, that unfortunately I was only able to see and not get a picture of from the other side because... you're not supposed to use phones while you're driving there... pffft like it makes a difference...? Haha

Looks like things have gotten a little warm from time to time in the Crock-O-Wax department... :o

Hehe Yeah. Course that stuff takes a lot of coercion to get to that point... even a direct flame just causes it to retreat like that. I knew things got a little warm from time to time with that, but that had to have been relatively recent because as of a few weeks ago, I had checked it and there was no deformation. I've also been letting it run a bit more with the returning supply of light... Prolly shudn' doo that... lol

I made a mod to it today as well, plan on posting a thread on that sub-project here soon as I get more chance. Ran across the heat effects as part of spring cleaning and reorganizing.
