So, I have been doing some work in the shop. Here is a bit of fun stuff. Everyone likes pictures, yes?
If I can find who owns this, I will make an offer...
Here is the manufacturers plate
I need to finish these out. The wheel order got canceled, then reordered, then, dang it....
The shafting for a project got south Texas rusty. Just finished polishing them on the Logan. It is 74 and still looks young. Works a treat for this.

|Lets not go thru that again|
Buddy had a vise that was missing a..... nut. So, I made two, and then had to source carriage bolts to fit, because metric isn't the same as 5/8 x 11.... oh well. Live and learn.

I picked up some 3/8 mild rod yesterday to make the cross pins. Not even started on them yet. But that is on the list for tomorrow. Till then, a 5/16 bolt works.
It has been windy down here. Cold front will move through, maybe strongly, then back up as a warm front, strongly, then here comes the cold again. That has played merry hob with my noggin. But knowing why I start to fold up has forced me to mind the weather a LOT closer than I have before.
|The prismatic colors of the ice clouds was subtle and beautiful|
More to follow as I get stuff done and, hopefully, unfold my head space.
Thanks for stopping by!
