German House Rebuild


Not 100% certain Shu...but I think what you do is to put one side up against your saw fence, hold the wood against the other side and then push the wood through your saw. I made a couple of similar gadgets out of wood, one is adjustable, the others are fixed at a specific angle.

You don't need to clamp the wood to the tool in any way. Try it with a piece of plywood and see how it works.

Turning the tool from one end to the other allows either a right or left hand cut.

That would be my guess also. Here is a google search for "table saw angle jig", http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&g...E_O10AGqlIDwDw

German House Rebuild


I finally got the last wall in the bathroom pretty much finished. The solar hot water guy stopped by and will install in the next week or so. I had to have a place for him to mount the hardware. With the PV solar panels I've saved 34 Euros so far . Here's a pic. dorf dude...

The Solar hot water guy is supposed to get my panels hooked up this week. I put up the wall paper on the section where he will be mounting the hardware. I suck at wall paper. Yes I cut 1 section too short. There is a learning curve. Today's weather was total cr@p, Mia won't even go outside, so I worked on the lights above the bar. They are beer bottles with the bottoms cut off. Older LED's for the bulbs, low power. Not super bright. To change the bulb all I have to do is unscrew 2 connections and drop the bulb out the bottom. Worked out great. Last week I put up an add for "Free Firewood" to try and get rid of the old beams I cut out of the roof. I would not get around to burning them for years. A guy showed up right on time and got 2 loads out with 1 more to go. Good to have them gone. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

Solar guys showed up at 7:30 this morning. I hadn't even had a shower yet. I had them move the big red pressure ball out of the down stairs bathroom. Sure looks better. They will finish up tomorrow. I got the tiles up around the work sink area. Just need to grout it. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

The Solar guys didn't get it done today but almost. The vacuum tubes did not want to mount through the plastic rings on the frame. They shrunk after 2 years outside on the roof. It took them a couple hours. They were cussing . All tubes are mounted finally. A real nice job plumbing the pipes. They just have to fill the system and get a few hook ups done. Rain and cold predicted for the long term. I won't get a good test with them for a while. I took a pic of their van. It says that the firm was established in 1710. 1710? What kind of heating and plumbing did they do back then?? Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

I had to go to work today but the Solar guy's got it done. I'm now "Green" I have no idea how they set up the programming. I think I will take it at face value and trust that the parameters were set correctly. It's their job on a daily basis. Of course now that I'm ready the weather has gone to total sh!t. Supposed to be rainy and cold for the next week. I can't wait to get the whole system in to operation working together under ideal conditions. I still made some electric from the PV panels though. It gives me a good feeling knowing that it's all come together. Now I'm waiting on the bill. 2 1/2 days for 2 guys plus their materials. Here is a pic of the Solar stations. on the left the little white meter is tracking my electric production. Next project! dorf dude...

Today we had broken up spells of overcast with some sunshine but low temps. The solar hot water was working great! It picked up and transferred enough heat to keep the house and hot water up to temp during the day. I now have the pellet stove going during the night. It is going to keep things warm until I go to work tomorrow but not burning a lot of pellets. This system seems to be working out great. Time will tell. dorf dude...

Campbell came over and installed the door between the bath and bedroom, Thanks. I got the utility sink and faucet mounted. In German it's called an Ausgussbecken. I think it has a nice ring to it. I've got one more doorway to finish and then the last door can be mounted. I should get that done today. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...
