Building my own furniture.
Some of the corners are still hot from welding.



Need a new entertainment stand. Cheap particle board junk from walmart is between $100 to $200 and falls apart after a few years. My current one sucks, bought it used off CL 2 years ago. It sags and not all the cabinets close and I fear its going to collapse any time I move it to clean and dust behind it.
The nice metal and wood entertainment stands like I want to build start at $900 if I wanted to just buy one.
Between the steel, wood, casters, paint I will have well under $300 in it.

My small halogen work lights after being on for an hour or 2.
I believe they are 100 watt.
Whatever the lowest common wattage for a given halogen tube size is what I typically run.

In other news I tried out a FLIR E6.
I don't care for it.
It appears to take a "bleached out" regular image and over lays it with a thermal image.
The image looks lower resolution then a flir i7 but the flir ligature claims its the same resolution.

I would say save your self $600 to $1,000 and just buy the "inferior" i7.

What kind of generator is that. At 72kw it's a really small gas turbine. Most I'm familiar with start around 4mw. IE lm1500 LM2500 running a power turbine and a generator. 72kw would be more like a generator cart/ start cart.

Makes me want an ir camera even more. Before we move and start looking at houses in will have one to check over the houses we look at.
