A bunch of plumbing parts to add a whole house filter and replace my defunct water softener.

are you putting valves and a bypass in so you can swap the filter without having to depressurize the whole system? i'm glad i did. even the 25 micron filters clog up with so much iron im replacing them every other month or so.

Super dirty workbench

The biggest one is 92% from mid 80s, we fixed it up after retrieving from my parents basement. Much of the original astrocam110 is there now. Still has some film in it, wonder if anything could be developed

16 flights on the patriot it gets a tick for each mission, looking ragged

Yup. Adding a 50 micron spin down filter so it's the first thing hit as water enters the house. Then will be a 25, 10, 5, then a 1 micron absolute filter before reaching the water softener.

Ain't nothing getting into this house.

I did that on my bugeye, and the plastic UV layer started peeling pretty early on. I have no idea of the quality of these, but it's literally the only option outside of buying from a dealership parts counter.

I had the body shop polish mine out last fall. Then I had clear bra installed. So far so good except for some damage from a stone or something.

What system are you using? I'm kicking the idea of a whole house filter around at the moment.

Also one of my recent and more substantial purchases was a new laptop.
Lenovo Flex 5 14"
16 gb Ram, 512 SSD, Ryzen 5 4500U cpu (first AMD for me)

(not my picture)

I love this little thing.
It is absurdly quiet and plenty speedy. The keyboard and pad are really great as well.
It also came with a pressure sensitive pen, so I can do some doodling on it until I replace my tablet.

I'm curious about this as well. I bought one of these a long time ago, never installed it and recently found it when I was cleaning out a barn. A mouse crawled in the opening and died. I'm thinking I'm okay with re-buying a new unit. I never paid much attention when I bought it originally but 4GPM flow sounds anemic and may constrain my water supply if I'm running washer, dishwasher and a bath / shower / sink.

The old blower had a failed ignition coil and was expensive enough for me to just put that money towards a new one. I hope it really blows.

I'm assembling it myself from parts purchased here. There's a bunch of DIY tutorials on youtube that I watched previous to making this decision.

Including any form of water pressure. I have 1 home filter that is 10 micron and water pressure is not great.

how many gpm is it rated for? 10 gpm is what most are rated for and will cause some pressure drop even with a fresh filter. i have a 20 gpm setup and there is no noticeable drop unless the filter is getting built up bad.

Welp. Actually a lease. Picked up last night. Will give this a shot and see how I like EV. Hopefully in three years there will be more options that are reasonably priced. Could not pass with GM and Costco incentives, plus the $5,000 EV rebate NJ is giving.

This is not the exact one I got, but it is pretty much identical: Kinetic Blue Metallic Bolt EV Premier.

I'm a sucker for Hand Tool Rescue's resurrections. This will be a fun afternoon, tempering it and making handle scales. It comes with a couple of brass pins, and you can get the 2D or 3D templates for the scales.

And then it will be my universal pointer. Mostly because I don't often come across screws this big...
