I've had a furnace in my garage for 4 years that I plan on turning into a negative air machine for job sites.

Time to go get lunch then keep on working on it

Yup. At least we have a stretch of nice weather so I can pull things out as needed. My goal is to have it workable by the end of the weekend.

There's a little room in my trailer that might act as a storage area for now. I don't have the title transferred over yet, so it's not going to be moving for a little while

Re: Purge And Sharpen Challenge....


I've actually pulled one corner apart. I have a 2x8 table there that is a chit collector. It's mostly empty now, and some of the stuff even went into the trash. I found a computer hard drive, 2 1/2" laptop internal. It didn't have the mounting screws so I went out and got some, 3mmx3mm. I was 90%, wait no, 99 44/100% sure it'd just be another crashed drive that I've saved for decades. But turns out it came from my youngest sons laptop and it seems fine

So now I have a new (to me) 500GB drive in my laptop.

Welp, gained about 20sf after 2 hours of on and off cleaning.



I'd like to get the table upstairs and out of the way to gain another 16sf.

Mine desperately needs it, but there's no way I'll have time before the end of October.

Yeah, me too. I figured posting photos would shame me into cleaning.

I got about 3 good hours out there before the girls came home from daycare, decent progress. Filled a couple garbage bags, pulled stuff out to donate

Oh yeah, I still have a lot more work to do though

Also did a little investigating, and that shop vac by the garage door just needs a new switch. It's been sitting in the back of the garage for 3 years, still had crap in it too!

I had to make a sign on a sheet of paper to dump or donate anything below 25 bucks and stop holding onto it. It actually helped when I would revert to my old ways.

What triggered the big purge?

What has made things go better since?
