    Apart from cooking for the family I did F All yesterday, I have a strong suspicion today will be a bit more of the same.

    I did, let it be known, have brief delusions of taking over the world as I do now and again but reconsidered and shelved the idea for a later stage.

    I did some :housecleaning: this morning - oh what is happening to me??





    The weather seems a bit dreary cloudy and cold here in Pretooria so not sure if I should wash me 2 cars or just lay on the bed and wait for that feeling to pass....

    I know the feeling.

    I got bored in the garage so I tried my hand at some on-line training through Google, registered as an essential service provider, AND I started adding a chat function to my website.

    There was some runout on the spindle so had to strip that part down and get it machined elsewhere. It would appear, from the damage that only became apparent during the strip down, that the machine has at some stage in its life been either dropped during transport, or has fallen over.

    It is a 380V 3 phase machine that was advertised as 220V single phase. Seller even powered it on (from normal 220V plug) to demonstrate that it ran. When I started stripping I found that the wiring had actually been butchered, and caps added to get it to run on single phase. I have now added a VFD, so motor is again running as 380V 3 phase, but from a 220V single phase source.

    Will start a dedicated thread if anyone is interested.

    That's the problem. By about 14:00 yesterday, I've powered through more than half of the stuff I planned to do during the lock down.

    I started by painting the plain white walls in the kitchen / scullery. SWAMBO is now not so sure about the colour, so project is on hold.

    I believe your greatest gift right now is to rather remain apart.
