Last week's progress makes the wife happy, dog unhappy.

The backsplash for the tub is PALight trimboard. They are pretty proud of it at $160 for a 4x8 1/2" sheet. Came strapped to a skid and fully wrapped, so at least it came well protected for the price. Pretty cool material to work with.

I cleaned off some benches, and not just by transferring mass amounts of sh..tuff to another bench!

I plan to move the blue bench against the side wall to the back wall in order to square up the hoist to the bay. Run air line with a drop in the under mezz area and at the hoist. Build some shelving upstairs and get some more totes for organization and storage.

New outside man door. Door for the bathroom. Door for the compressor.

What's the best thing going for running air? 3/4" Rapidair kit?

I used PEX to run my air. Quick and easy... and cheap.
I have crimpers you can borrow.

I ordered the 3/4 Rapidair kit and a 3/4 regulator. I'll mount the regulator inside the compressor room on the wall and get a hose made to run the compressor to the reg.

I'll put a drop at the front corner of the hoist, one in the new work area and one outside.

Haven't updated in a while.. Busy summer. I reached a point in the shop I no longer wanted to be working on the shop. Instead really been focusing on the 3 ton project. Of course my daily driver Jetta diesel blew up so I prepared another daily driver diesel jetta. Also been pushing all the bush along the perimeter of my 80 acres for a fence which may get done this fall yet.

The rapid air kit was really nice. The compressor tank has a half inch bung. From there is upsizes to 3/4" everything (to the drops). The aluminum drops for the rapid air kit are 3/8 and my air hoses are 3/8 with 3/8 V couplers. I worked in a low point drain after the whip and regulator because it goes straight up into the attic. 3/4" regulator is off ebay.

In the last picture you can see a hole in the wall by the blue pex-al-pex pipe. I have a drop going out to the cold side of the shop there.

pic 1 - Slot board went up before the drop could go on that wall.
2 - Drop on the pegboard to hose reel. It switches to pipe not only for protection from sparks but because 100ft of airline doesn't go as far as you might expect after running a drop through the attic across the shop.
3 - drop at the hoist. In the pic it is on the wrong side of the hoist pole. However, the hoist had been in the shop slightly crooked so I switched two benches around and straightened out the hoist (me and my OCD). It was a challenge to hit the right spot because I had no access to the ceiling, only from the attic side. So it was careful measuring. The conduit is just for protection and because the pipe doens't stay straight on its own. I welded a plate to the top of the conduit and welded bolts to it. Made a structure in the attic so it is hung from the roof trusses. Lots of work to a stupid air drop. I still would like to string electrical to the front corner of the hoist there.
4 - I can either deflect the conduit or put an angled drain on the hoist drop. I should do the latter and also fix it to the hoist post so no one gets stupid and bends the conduit trying to get one extra foot.
5 - Some cheapie HD cabinets above the washer dryer.

Dog baths and grooming
Some stuff is moving upstairs and getting organized. No railing til maybe this winter.
Picked up LED direct wire fluorescent replacement bulbs. For sure these will go under the mezz because the fluorescent ones are messing with FM radio reception down there. Also 3 or 4 of them will go in the dog wash bathroom.
