Decided to install an additional panel to manage all the equipment in the rug washing processing area. This project was started Friday. Everything added to the building for this purpose will be run by pipe and wires pulled back to the new panel. It will be surface mounted as seen in one of the pictures below:

Today they came to fix it. It turned into a fiasco. It had to be taken down and rerolled. The factory did not get instructions from the salesman to begin with. The factory talked the crew though it while on location in my shop. It was not easy. I had to help. In the end, I probably will get a new door:

Let there be heat in the dry room. Still tweaking it but sustaining 125 degrees Fahrenheit. I am trying to get a bit more. The unit does 160 discharged.

Some old school stripping with my very old trusted rotary scrubber, built like a tank, that is still in my arsenal:
