    Fun fact, those use a 69 (nice!) watt bulb for the 8" lens signals. We used to order them at the building supply I used to work at. People put lower wattage bulbs in them for indoor displays. Typically a 25 watt or so medium base appliance bulb. The new LED bulbs don't quite get the same effect, but a 2700K color LED would be close in a pinch. If you knew this information, disregard :laugh:

    Alot of guys use old industrial timers and contactors that went in control panels. Most can be had for free. Takes a little bit of industrial wiring knowledge, but relatively easy. We did this in my industrial controls class a while back. Not as quick and simple as a pre-made board, but I like tinkering.

    Clearly you've never spent any time in Asia! That exceeds standards simply by virtue of the fact that the insulation isn't stripped back two inches past the outlet, and I'll bet he even twisted the copper together too.

    @six5crèéd been meaning to ask: where in NC are you? I’m hoping to get down to Uwharrie again at some point & was curious to see if you were on the way there. :D

    I'm about an hour north of Uwharrie, it may be on your way depending on which way you go, you could bypass it or go right by me I guess is what I'm trying to say.

    Usually go down 81 through Va to get there.

    hopefully I actually get to do a road trip at some point this year. If so I’ll hit you up. :thumbsup:

    This deck could use a little work. My neighbor got fed up working on it (had a bad coil, he bought a new one and it still wouldn't run) and told me I could have it a couple years ago, I gave it to my boss cause I didn't need it. It's been a good mower since I turned the coil over. He had it on upside down :rolleyes:
