Abby and I ran the 240v circuit for the welders and got nothing.  Checked my breaker and had nothing.  Pulled breaker and my box was missing the last lugs for the breaker.  berkeley.  Picked up a new box at lowes.


 

Now


 

 

probed everything and.... half my new breaker for the welder circuit is bad.  berkeley.  Brand new.  Ordered another one.  Few staples to finish up and i have a new panel that has room for more breakers although I don't really need any.  Maybe i'll get a tool that needs its own.  
 

so for now i wait.  Will keep plugging away at organizing and cleaning.

how comfortable were you with this exercise.....cuz honestly my main panel is junk and......I was thinking this can't be all that difficult .....but then again there are 'MASTER' electricians.....so i don't fry another set of side cutters...

It's not hard, this one is simple because my main breaker is in its own box(to the right there) so it was literally a matter of shutting it off, pulling wires, transferring fittings to the new box in roughly the same knockouts and putting the wires back in.  For a house main panel i call the electric company, tell them i'll be pulling the meter to do work and ask them to come out a couple days later and reseal it.

Trying to picture this... all the berkeleying shelves are along where the passenger side of the Wartburg used to be, right?

In reply to AxeHealey :

That's what you're looking at there, where the tire machines and blast cabinet were.  The other side(next to chevelle) now has 72 linear feet of 2' deep shelf.  I'm hopeful to get to a point of more shelf than stuff.  I'm looking to dedicate one whole area to ebay stuff so i can go through it all to list and then be able to go right to something when it sells.  Going to leave the cabinets over the compressor and move the parts washer to the back, and probably leave the parts washer area empty for an engine on a stand to go.  Right now i have a 5.3 on a stand, a 6.0 shortblock under the new shelves, panhard engine thats still tarped and has to come in, 7 acvw engine blocks on shelves, a 914 engine on the shelf, and 2 in movable vehicles that will eventually not be in them.  Something will have to give as far as my affinity for having way more engines than vehicles goes.  There's a 914 engine block in the basement too.  Pretty sure i have a 350 block over in dad's garage still and 6 doors, a hood, a trunklid, a fender, somewhere between 10 and 20 wheels, and my 54 BelAir.  
 

time to liquidate all the E36 M3 I'm never going to use.  
 

Things i want to keep long term:

devin panhard

54 belair

57 chevy 210

72 chevelle

90 Q45

wartburg

sand rail

 

things I don't know about their future:

Datsun 240z

94 mustang 

 

things I need to make go away:

94 q45

95 impala ss
