Default Painting

Last fall the business next door approached me and asked if I would be interested in doing some painting for them. I said sure, I have a paint gun and I know what I'm doing. I had kind of forgotten about it. Last week they came out to my shop and said they had some stuff that needed painting. So that was where I was tonight. They make exercise equipment. They have two units that are going to a hospital in Sweden. He then told me he has 10 more to make. Something tells me I'm going to be done a lot of painting. Time to upgrade my spray gun. Here'* a few pictures.

Pretty sweet Dan. You can put your slippers on in the morning and walk over in your robe and get to work!

Over spring break I am doing a guys motor cycle, prep and paint. I get $500 cash for labor and materials. I really like painting, but I just don't have the proper work space for a lot of high end stuff, this motor cycle stuff is going to be a PITA as it is. . . . .

It uses a electric motor and a load cell. When you push on the handles the load cell will tell the motor to turn. It'* kind of neat. These are used for physical therapy.
