Hurrah! The Experiment is in it’s new home.

Condenser Disk on shop deck

Condenser Disk on shop deck

 

 

 

The disk has moved or at least we moved it!

Yesterday afternoon the deck/ceiling of the warehouse/shop was sufficiently completed and I had  5 strong men, me included, available. We moved the experiment to it’s new home.  FINALLY!  Still creating walls within the timber framing and it needs a roof. Maybe tarps this year and a real roof next year.  At least, now the disk has a home where I can work on finishing it and set up testing mounts. Below the deck is a warehouse dug into the hillside. The front wall, seen here. is masonry, 10 feet down into bedrock with the backside wall at ground level. more on this later.  pg

    Finally! the experiment has been moved to it’s home where I can complete it and set up the testing devices needed.
    Now all I need to do is complete the shop walls and roof before the rainy season starts. 😎 pg.

    Nice structure pg – once it’s all enclosed you’ll have a nice space to work. I’m looking forward to the testing of the disk.

    Thanks Simon, we are using the lower area for storage and farm harvest already. I must create a post on some of the construction details. Too bad I failed to take pictures of the hole digging and and foundation work. pg

    Looking Good P.G.Sharrow. Leave a big door you can fly out of.

    @BobN; The space between the front posts,14feet, is the door way. To be closed with 2 sliding doors. The device is not supposed to fly away. Hopefully just change mass/inertia a bit. A test device to study effects of “rich or confused” magnetic fields on matter and Aether. Either that or this thing will be an expensive yard ornament. At least I will have a nice work shop afterward. 😎 pg

    Yes, I realize it was not meant to fly and was a test vehicle, just a bit of teasing. It looks like it will be housed very nicely and I hope your test show some affect. Looking forward to you throwing the switch on those big caps.

    Sweet! Good to see you’re making some headway. Leave the farming to the illegals. 😉

    Maxsmoke thinks I should leave the farming to the illegals. Why should I let them have all the fun!
    GOD drives me to do “The Experiment”. If I complete that work, He won’t let me play any longer.
    Besides, it is not yet time for mankind to receive it’s next “gift”. pg

    Hummm… The Obamanation is gone and the Beast is wreaking the Liberal Progressive/communist dream. Maybe it is time to get back to the Experiment. The work shop is nearly finished with a real roof. My lady has nearly filled it with “stuff” that needs to be rearranged to make working space. Time to make a post on that. Can’t believe that nearly 5 years have past!…pg

    p.g., Yesterday, I took some time to wander around your site. At your recommendation over on Chiefio’s blog, I read through the experiment and I still don’t seem to have found a concluding post.

    Your comment above indicates that you haven’t really concluded the experiment, so that would explain my inability to find a conclusion. I mentioned to you somewhere or other that it had been a while since I visited here. I think I’m getting the same “It’s been 5 years?!?” reaction that you had.

    I’m a foodie, so I also enjoyed looking through the food/cooking posts. I have some peanut flour mixed with cocoa powder that I’m going to use to try out the peanut butter cookie recipe. I can ignore just about any baked goodie except cookies. I AM the Cookie Monster!

    Also, I see you mentioned using cottonwood for one of your offering bowls. The State Record cottonwood tree is about 5 miles from my house. Here’s a shot of the tree.

    Now that would make one heck of an offering bowl!

    @HR; Now that is a LARGE TREE! Probably have to get back a quarter mile to see the whole thing. 😎
    My cookie recipes were designed to be more food then sweets as I too have a sweet tooth. This way, If hungry while working, I can grab a cookie and run. Cookies can be food.
    Generally I have to do my own cooking as my lady is at her business 40 miles away. She always complains about my cookies when I make them, but, I notice they disappear much faster when she is home. Often a half a cookie at a time. “Rats! There be rats getting into my cookie jar.” Lol.
    Yum! coco powder in peanut flour and a fist full of Dark Chocolate chips, I must try that.
    I learned to cook watching my mother when I was very young and learned to create good food from whatever ingredients were available. Wish I could remember her pie crust recipe. It was even better then the filling. My next cooking experiment is to create a good dependable pie crust recipe to contain pie fillers created from the production of the berry patch. Spent half of my life bacheing it, so cooking is self defense. I like to eat good food….pg
