Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Yeah bigd... 65 is probably where I'll run it most of the time...but I needed to be able to hit 70-75...I'm making a temporary paint booth inside the shop and needed those 70ish temps for painting..
Normally I paint outside weather permitting, but the weather just wont cooperate here lately

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

Tell me bout it Rick...95deg shop temps are just around the corner...
I have a idea I want to try for shop cooling...I'm thinking about doing a geothermal cooling system..
I have a 6+acre pond next to the shop...we've been talking about running the water coils below ground level under the water...they'd be about 15ft or so below the surface...they say itll work...but we'll see

Have you checked out a product like Portacool? It's basically a big radiator that circulates water through from a garden hose and a big fan blows over it. It's really simple and really effective
