My Buddies Son bought an old house down the road from me, as He was cleaning out the shed in the back of the house He found , a Bolt action Shot Gun , a bolt action .22 rifle (Winchester mod.50 I think) And a sawed off crack barrel. the threw the sawed off into the Bayou and I went retreive the others. He was going the tthrow them out as well. they had some parts also -a tubular Magazine 1 for a .30-.30 and 1 for a .22 and a few rounds of empty brass.
I took the to the shop to see if I could refurb them or just use them for parts....

Unfortunatly the stock has been cut right at the wrist of the but .... and the bolt is missing. Havent had time to really look them over since I was helping the ole boy bag up the other garbage so He could get it out the yard. I am also still digging my trench , made it to the shop today now im going to make me some sweeping *90's for the conduit. and finish laying the it.

Hey!!! Update on the found treasur???? Well the Winchester is a Mod. 72  and the Bolt Shot Gun is 20 gauge and the brand name is Western Field Mod. 15K  Thats what I could get off it today. will try and look for some other wording on it tomorrow. Because I cant find nothing for the shotgun as for parts . and the .22 has no parts that I could use for restoration either...Just My luck! Might be why they were left for so many years in the shed........

Are you running 20mm conduit the rhino?

What power cables do you have to run for that AC? 4mm2 because you are on 110v?

A conversion chart I found says #4AWG is 21.2mm2 cable! Thats going to cost a bomb! Closest we have is 25mm2.  Sounds like a long run so that must be for voltage drop considerations.

We work off cross sectional area for our cable sizes.

I thought 110 or 120v was the supply voltage in north america as in the early days you lot used paper insulation that couldn't handle 240v because the brits had all the rubber supplies sewn up.

Well now I know what wire size to get... I need to go about 60 feet I guess , from the panel to the back of the house. and get my a 60 amp box for next to the AC unit and a 60 amp breaker for the panel.
I was thinking that I would be able to get away with 6awg CM? thats what I have going to the Shop from the house , but I only have a little 8000 BTU AC out there and lights , and a 200 air compressor , and the wood working stuff only runs for a few minutes at a time....when ever I do wood working projects.....I guess Lisa will have Me in there Making Her kitchen cabinets in not long.....Cry
