Wired Up

Since it's been a hot minute, let's head over to the fab shop to see how WFS-360 is coming along.

That ladder give a major clue as to where we're working at the moment: wiring up the console. I'm still playing the "new" card sometimes, although we just hired an HR generalist who sits right by me (hi Liz!), so it doesn't work as well as it used to, but I've noticed that the electrical typically comes after the plumbing. So that's a decent sign that we're finally on the back nine with this beast, although looking back on the first post about it, it's only been about two months.

Here's a better look at that back panel.

The old triplex is still there too. I don't know why it wouldn't be, but confirmation is always nice. That skid and it's manifold-looking thing in the next bay over is catching my attention too, but one thing at a time.

Plug valve! Did you read the post I did about them? Why not? It's probably my best post ever, and the part itself is one of the best ever too.

Speaking of pumps and things connected to pumps, here's this. I feel like I take this general photo a lot, but there's actually a reason for it. Just looking at the thing, it's pretty clear that its seen some stuff in its day. It will eventually be re-painted and look great, of course, but I sort of like it at this stage, because for all of the life its had, I know it works beautifully since it went through our pump shop. I probably don't feature them on here as much as I should, but trust me when I say that they're like ten feet away from me and they definitely know their stuff. And my stuff too, which is a little concerning, but they're really smart.

Oh yeah, I did a post on centrifugal pumps too. Our very underrated friend.

Trippy is hooked up and pretty much ready to jam, as far as I can tell.

If you had to come up with like the best, coolest action hero name ever, then take the exact opposite of it, it would probably be "Lack Softwall." On a more serious note, I remain enamored with how good welders are at what they do.

Hey someone pick this up. Liz specializes in safety.

Happy...Tuesday. Ew, it's only Tuesday.
