Pulling 200 Feet of Cable

We wrapped five 200 foot segments of the direct burial line back onto the original spool so we could tape them all together. The paint cans are ballast to keep the spool from sliding around.

Our first pull attempt was thwarted by friction. We yanked it back and greased the nose of the cable and it went through well.

The cables then had to be completely un-spooled again, the opposite end taped, and then pushed through three more short conduit runs. It comes out of the wall in the sound room of the sanctuary.

Saw mitre fence

There are grooves in the aluminum bar that should accept a hex head bolt, I would need to cut a pair to fit into the fence.

Dinner Table Network Lab

Because I needed to document my Vlan setup, of course. Serial cable swapped between an OPNsense firewall and a Fedora box. Verified that I don’t have to set Vlans on the host ports to hand out multiple DHCP domains. It does hog switch ports, tho.

Three inch rip

This used table saw is definitely an improvement. However, it lacks sled grooves and a riving knife. I miss the sled grooves already. I think i should make a sled based on the fence.
