Heat in the workshop. Heaven!
Today I fired up the pipe heater which I have welded up over the past few days.
I was so keen to get warm on this 10 degree celcius day, that I deferred water proofing the flue.
And of course it rained!
Within 5 minutes the temperature of the burner was over 200c, and in an hour it was 350 degrees celcius/ 660 fahrenheit. Heaven.
And then it rained! And I had not installed the waterproofing fitting to the roof. So water poured down onto the heater, and filled my workshop with steam.!!

Despite today being only 10 deg celcius, I happily machined away until 6pm. 2 hours later than I usually stop due to the cold.
Then I had to go home to cook dinner. SWMBO was getting hungry.
