Tools as Art - 2  


I don't have much to say about this picture other than if you read my blog a week or so ago we got a lathe and a mill and now they are up and running. I also want to give mention of the electrician who did the wiring - a sub panel, and several 3 phase and 220 lines (not something you should do on your own). Mike is an old-school electrician, does great work, very good pricing, and he is used to (and has all the licenses) to do all sorts of wiring especially industrial and high voltage stuff. Anyway if you are in the New York City area, and you need an electrician, Mike can be reached at: 917-559-4942.

FYI only
3 phase is 208 volts everywhere I've tested it, in my experience. Is the NYC electric supplier different?

I've never taken a job down there. I'd like to know.

I think you will appreciate this old Oliver seeing new life, not to mention the work that is being done on it!

Didn't take long to get those machines up & running.
Having a guy as knowledgeable as mike the electrician is a very valuable thing.
Thanks Joel,
I am pretty sure this is what we have.

I am kind of wrong in the details, and just sort of being coloquial, but I am not sure how it should be corrected - basically I know nothing about electricity and am just repeating hearsay.
No problem... I didn't expect my comment to be posted when it was moderated and you saw it.

Glad you got things set up so quickly by a good Person. Good tradesman are not easily found.

Also I like your Photos/perspective. Have you exhibited your work at all?
