Down to grade. Got it sloped to the exit trench and tamped down, thunderstorms tomorrow.





And it slopes down to the exit tench for a rain sump.


My ass is dragging, now off to do my 12 hour shift at work.

It's raining today/night.


Sloped and running downhill.



That top pipe will later be plumbed to the downspout, at the start.



At the outlet end the short 90 is to keep the pipe clean.
The 90 degree fitting will continue around the basement wall , with sleeved pipe.
I bought the sleeve separate, but I found it easy enough to install.
At the connectors I put the a little of the sleeve inside the connectors to hold it in place.
The 45 degree fitting will be for the downspout.


Now when I finish the rock fill along the front, I shall dig the side and throw it's dirt on top of the finished curtain drain to save having to throw it up 7 feet in the air.
I will also use the newly dug dirt to back fill the drainage trench.

Here is where i'm getting the rock yea, I clean it first.

Fuck I'm tired.

Today was a rain out day so I thought I'd do some plate compactor fabrication.
You know since I have to compact allot of dirt so I bought a plate compactor for $100.00 off Craig's list.
The next cheapest one was like $500.00 and looked like shit.
So I figure what the hell.
$100 Plate compactor
$12 carburetor throttle shaft
$200 shitty Lotos 3500 plasma cutter
$12 for PT-31 plasma cutter handle better quality and cheaper consumables.
Hell for almost $24 I got the handle and almost a lifetime supply of replacement tips.
I got a Stick welder 160 amp shit-box for $169.99.
I bought a new Lincoln Electrode holder $12 Copper terminal end for the welder lead cable to the Lincoln electrode holder.





Bottom plate is trash.
Old steal brittle 3/16
New steal 5/16 wear resistant steel cost $70 fr the plate and as luck would have it a perfect fit on one axis.



I cleaned this out with Muriatic acid, then neutralized with baking soda and lots of water.

This is when I found out the Lotos Plasma cutter tips are $37.99 for 5 sets. Are you fucking kidding me?
So I said fuck that I'll replace the handle.
So the PT-31 was the same range very popular and the replacement shit is dirt cheap.
I did the swap the plasma cutter is freaking way better I LOVE IT!
I thought I was the first one the do the swap, but I was NOT and a gentleman did it a year ago and people have still not caught on.
I give him full cudos and credit.
I did think of it independently.
I did make videos I will put up on youtube.


The plate fits perfectly from side to side.
I had to keep trimming a little from the front over and over.
It is very easy to take off, but can be a real bitch putting it back on.

So now I am using 7018 Rods at 130 amps.
1/8 inch Diameter.
Tack welding 180 degrees out to prevent warping.



I even welded to the stingers in the rear of the plate.

Mad sleep depraved rant on
First time in over 12 years I've done any stick welding.
In the videos I'm wearing shorts and flip-flops while welding LOL
I have a welding apron, do you think my dumb ass will wear it?
I feel sorry for people who see something that's broken, that's all they see "broken".
I see what it takes and how to do the job, well that part takes like 5 minutes.
Getting the money, the non-freezing your ass off temps helps
That part takes around a year.
-
Compactor finished to-
to finish the curtain drain-to finish basement playroom for a Lego free living room
BUT WAIT!!! Need stone to make curtain drain and dry-well.
With a useless garage that has a processed stone floor.

-getting Concrete in my garage and no more stone floor!!!-
All part of my evil plan to have a concrete floor in my garage after 12 years whahahahahahaha

Mad sleep depraved rant off!

And a year later I am almost finished with compactor

I will finish it later when I wake up.
Oh yea I will be compacting mudd tomorrow LOL

No I have a helmet, 2 really.
Stone floor moisture comes right up from ground.
Rods were being difficult to start a bead.
Like I said I am not used a stick welder in like 12-13 years.
I got good penetration. That's all I care about.


I never claimed to be a welder. That is why when I worked at caterpillar dealerships.
I let the welders do the welding.

Lol It amazing people pay to do CrossFit when they could just do a little manual labor and lose some weight.

Why did you put plastic under the rock? Not sure that is the correct move as the water that comes up from the bottom will not be able to get into the stone. It will be forced up and into your basement.

Shingles the water can flow up between them if it has to but I am on the side of a hill.
Ground water is NOT an issue.

You are right though.
It's a stupid idiot that pays a gym to take his labor.
If you wanted to get in shape get a menial labor job, and get paid for working out.
I have lost over 40 pounds so far, and back in shape.
