Roll on summer

Recommended Posts

I've got the solar setup balanced on the patio steps ATM with a fig tree that I have to keep untangling from the scope, it's the best spot for winter Sun but not very convenient, hopefully I can relocate shortly to a more roomy spot.

No Sun today so here's a pic' from yesterday.

A "modest" setup time involved? But accordingly, I am impressed! 😎
Much as I am with ALL "Solarites" who persist at this time...  
Gotta get going again on this ... No excuses! 😸

I try to keep my solar setup somewhat portable so that I can shift it around the garden in winter, accessing the Sun in the gaps between the trees :biggrin:

is that with postage ? 😀. can you remember the old way thay would plasty/power coat where you would heat up the metal then dip it in plastic grains and then reheat in the oven until smooth ? for the life of me i carnt remember the name of the process but would be good to use on weights because it wasnt britle. weights have paint that the wind blows off it dont matter which paint. charl.

Still vernal equinox to look forward to on the 20th March :thumbsup:
