Thanks for checking out my build everyone. Couldn't weld or grind tonight since I got a clean bill of health on No metal in my head (eyes), and they wanna keep it that way until my MRI tomorrow. What a drag, I can't build tonight.
I went to pick up a pressure relief valve for the water heater and figured I could spray a little primmer when I got home. It sounded like a plan until I went down the lumber isle. I found 5/4 deck boards at Lowe's, they were pretty nasty looking with black slime and such. So I ask the lumber guy if they want to make me a deal since chances of someone buying them for there deck would be slim.
They gave me 25% off on the straight ones and 50% off on the warped or knotted boards.
Even the 50% off boards are more then usable.
I loaded up me cart with 40 5/4x6x8 boards and headed for home. I'm probably adding several hundred lbs but it should last a long time.
I'm pretty sure I can get the boards laid out in place and give them a good brushing with a stiff broom and a bleach water mix then let um dry. That oughtta be plenty good until they dry out and I can paint them with traction paint.
