    Hi all,

    Brad T at the Villaume Building called me and asked me to start a thread about work this summer. Brad has some new hardware and is having difficulty accessing the Forum.

    Work is going to start on the Montana Boiler side of the building this summer. The concrete between the building and the boiler is going to be replaced so they can improve the drainage. The first item he needs is a jack hammer to break out the old concrete. He has one lined up last fall, but that one is no longer available. He doesn't care if it is an air or electric hammer. A jack hammer attachment for the Bobcat would also work.

    They are planning to get the project started on Memorial Day Weekend. If you have a hammer that could be used, post a reply here or send me a PM.

    Watch this thread for more information about work weekends at the Villaume Building.

    Later,
    Jerry Christiansen

    I talked with Craig today. The jack hammer is lined up, thanks! Are Louie and Klinger on board to help move the water tank?
