More power meters

Ok, now I am hooked, I got 4 more power meters and I will give them a run for a month and see what we find.

The far left is measuring the electric furnace, it draws 274W for the fan and 15.7KW while heating.

Next to that is the water pump, using 1.26KW

Next on the bottom is the stove, this sensor exploded right after I turned on the power.

And at the top we have the dryer 654W when tumbling 6.14KW heating and tumbling.

Just as a note, all sensors started at 0 on April 13, 7:30pm I’ll recheck them in a week or so.

A different day, a different table

I’ve done it before, and we are doing it again. Our dining table is in poor condition, so we sanded the top off and we are going to restain it. You can see the white marks from plates and pots that were too hot, and even some sharpie marker marks from the kids. We sanded it and started to stain it. I put it on a bit too thick so we might sand that a bit before coating it with a water based sealer.
