Tank finally in position

The tank is finally in position.. there's room behind it for my storage drawers and room to come through side door garage and then to tank area. Still got a lot clean up to do, but it's chiefly in place

12 guage extended

Zee Zombie Killer... She aleeviessss . 9 in tube and 1 in chamber if you want. I don't intend to chamber as the sound of racking 1 from tube makes a sound that would make most run. It's a second slower but also more safe :-)
Not legal for hunting, but legal for home defense and target shooting. I'm not a hunter anyway... More for peace, love and understanding as Elvis ( Costello) said.

Took the REST tank for a little spin.

Literally .

Got the tank into garage.

But unfortunately it was 180 degrees out to finish work. Actually was able to spin it around, by myself, without opening garage door. Only took about 20 mins of nudging an inch at a time.

I’m celebrating 7 months as a septic shock survivor

I'm celebrating 7 months as a septic shock survivor. September is  Sepsis Awareness Month . I am a blessed man thanks to God's Grace, fantastic care at Vanderbilt Medical Center, and the support and prayers of family, friends, co-workers, Lions, and even strangers who care.

Sepsis kills more than 210,000 Americans each year, equal to the population of Rochester, New York. Sepsis is a bloodstream infection that can start from something as simple as an insect bite or a bladder infection. It kills nearly a third of all people who develop it. Many of those who don't die from it are left with lifelong debilitation.

Last pic of the long weekend...

Coming along. Need to connect the plumbing back up, wrap the sides with insulation and reinstall wood panels

I decided to go bigger scale...

This makes the material thickness in line with scale. And while using more material will enable greater details and overall workability.

DIY - float tank design- my personal take on it 2

Of course it's safety first even when working small :-)

DIY - float tank design- my personal take on it 1

Start with a model. Yes I can do 3d digital modeling. But nothing beats a tangible old school scale model in my opinion. 

One could even print 3d parts and I'll do that if needed. But I like real world stuff to hold in hand.
