I needed to get those big ol U bolt nuts tightened up so I set things up to crawl under the van. I used a two foot cheater pipe on my breaker bar and still had to push that bar with all my might. I worked on it a bit, then did some other stuff until I was rested up and could work on it again throughout the day.
New shed frame
After I was tired of turning big nuts, I worked on this shed frame some more.
Quad rock rack
I’d like to be able to haul a big rock or two on my quad runner so I removed the old rack and set it up to weld some more rods on it once I had them cut.
I’m making the spaces smaller between the bars that were already on the rack.
Once I had all the new bars welded on, I got out the paint and painted it, mostly to make it look better.
While the paint was drying on the rack, I worked on the new shed frame some more. I have all the foundation parts made now and need to weld them all together, but not today.
Here’s the new improved rock rack I worked on today, all mounted up. I just need the new battery and the rig should be ready to roll.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
