  12. I was feeling pretty good at the middle of the day sat! I felt we were going fast! until the compressor gave out on us! we tryied to get it going again but it never build up enough pressure for continous use. so we went out and rented a bigger one....60 dollars and a hernia later! (those things are heavy!) The compresor was gas powered and it was louder than a train! but it worked great!
  13. some used the grinder, some sanded panels by hand and some cooked the carne asada which was the most savory meat i had in quite a while! it must have been all the dust in the air that made it taste great!!!!
