Hey Guys,

Hope you are all doing well, enjoying summer and your projects.

Shoulder is doing better. Not that I've done much, but I can work on the bench with my hand between waist and chest level. No dice yet working at or chest / shoulder height. The other shoulder is a whole nother deal. Doc says he can't do anything with that one....it'll need a replacement. Overall aside from some other smaller issues I'm good.

After a few attemps to seal those collectors from the inside and outside I decided to whack off the collectors just past the welds and weld in a new set of collectors. We welded in a new star bullet and this time welding as far out on the star as possible and then continuing the up the groove between the primarys from the edge forward about 1/2" so the seal weld all around the collector will be continuous with no gaps. That's where the leaks were before at the area where the tubes met.

We'll (my son...he's doing all the tigging) will be welding the collectors on tonight. We'll throw an air test on them again and report back. I think we have it this time. I'm anxious to send them out for ceramic coating.

It felt good to get back on it. Can't go at it hard yet but I am getting my appetite back to get back at it.
