I abjectly apologize for the post title.
When I left off the rafters looked like the top picture, with the ends not meeting in the middle. It is best when they meet in the middle. But how is this done?
I was gonna patch them together with more hunks of 2×4 but then I thought, nah, & I got 14 of these:
Clip em in place, get things lined up, drill a pilot hole & screw em together.
Some of the rafters required percussive adjustment before fitting together properly, but I have extensive experience with hitting things with a hammer.
I went outside wearing a flannel, a fuzzy vest, & a pair of fingerless gloves, but pretty soon I was back down to a tank top. Well. Plus pants & all. It stays warm in the tinker’s wagon with the roof on!
I also applied another purchase:
It’s not a chastity toy. Close, though!
Now it will be MUCH harder to steal my tinker’s wagon.
All of this was well timed, as witness the sky when I came back in:
It’s not snowing yet, but it’s gonna be. They’re calling for 4-8 inches tomorrow. Good thing I got my shopping done!
This was posted originally to, a little over a week ago.
If you want to see these posts sooner, & not incidentally help support me & my cats in our travels & such, the way to do that is tofor as little as a buck a month.
I’d REALLY like that.
