    Holy cow Scott! You got the 3x10! Nice looking evap. And it is complete!

    Man all I walked away with was some tubing and fittings!

    Did your grandfather get that maple cream machine that he wanted to buy?

    Oh I forgot I wanted to post a few pics of the open house yesterday. I'll do it now.

    Dennis H. - No he decided to wait on the cream machine, maybe next time! He really wants a candy machine but they didn't have any in yet.

    Well, didnt get a single section of mainline wire run or ever cleaned out! 3rdgen is gonna scold me for that. Ended up having to help the parents move out old furnature, go pick up new furniture and bring into the house. then go and grab more pallets from a local feed supply store and bring back to layout and finish stacking sapwood, which is done now!
