CEB Electronics Trip Preparation
Email Exchange with Wilson from India Agriculture Project
Shaking off remainder of sickness...
Preparing for trip to Barry's for troubleshooting CEB electronics.
Hablab foyer is smokey. Stove is poor as before.
The stove is ridiculous. Much time and frustration. Leaks and handle and non-starting and all.
Better stove = no leaks, forward/backward oriented grate, reliable handle.
Still recovering from sickness...
Defending against sickness.
Successful fire start number 1. The big log does not fire. Gotta somehow cut the large diameter wood down to a more appropriate size. Table saw? Portable saw? Having the mitre saw in front of Hablab works wonders for smaller wood. Tomorrow will try chopping with axe with stone underneath the log.
Somehow made progress on Tech Development plan despite being sickly.
Lots of trouble maintaining the fire - non-straightforward, super-leaky stove, terrible terrible.
Got truck running - removed some unnecessary electronics.
Got truck unstuck from mud- lined wheels with gravel and put gravel in front and back of rear wheels, then moved forward and backward until the gravel was well-lined into the wheel.
Picked up wood.
Responded to Wilson about agricultural project in India looking for collaboration
Progress on 2013 plan - Tech Development
Faxed driver's abstract to GEICO.
Started Tech Development as development scope with project granularization and timeline
Remember to get expanding foam from baker's or other local store.
Got Auto Insurance. Need to get and fax US driver's license and ontario driver's abstract to geico
Need to transfer vehicle under my name. Got non-assessment card. Truck needs inspection- call D-tone on Monday.
Need to take written and driving test at Maysville center on Thursday.
Got driver's abstract.
Research US tax process
Applied for Auto Insurance... Talk to Maysville Local Insurance; if local insurance not good, call GEICO to finalize application
Researching US driver's license process... Call the Maysville licensing office again
Remember to transfer the vehicle under my name
Sealed door-side air gap at back of Hablab

Completed and Tested CEB Press Coded Arduino Board for Barry. Kavitha is taking care of shipping.
Ordered some hand tools.
Getting ready for some post-organization CNC Torch Table rapid development. Straightforwardness is the key, baby!
Alas, there's a lot of workshop organization, tool acquisition, and supplier searching to be done.
C-Clamps should be made with flat perpendicular faces so that mounting C-Clamps on C-Clamps is easier. Plus flat faces make add-ons easier like welding on a linear rail. Oo, Fancy!
Ah, gotta do the truck legal stuff too.
Well, editing the wiki is so darn accessible. I'm going to try wiki-logging again.
CEB Press 1-Day Production Run
Development Guide is trudging along
Various tools still need to be ordered
Workshop needs to be cleaned up and super organized
Lead Free Brass Fitting and Fuse Holder order is still waiting on Marcin's response...
