It runs like new, I hooked it up at my friends who gave it to me and it runs very nice and smooth.

Thanks for the switch idea, I will just relocate it to the front of the saw.

Default homemake tools

I thought that some of you might be interested in ideas for some homemade tools. The 8 foot brake was built from plans. I built the 30" brake to fold up 1/2" sq. and up, channel. I also built the 12" shear. The last picture is the fuselage jig for a Bearhawk, ( homebuilt airplane,4 seat, for bush flying). Built 4 fuselages from the jig. Pops

Default Re: homemade, weld buggy

This has been in process for awhile.
Pulled 220v power to the cart with 20 amp end fro the plasma and tig boxes, then split into a 110v quad box. The 110 is used for a dedicated grinder for the tig machine and the wire welder. Also added a air manifold so that I can hook up to the shop air for the plasma box and have a couple of extra ends for die grinders or a blow gun. Welded old used up air fittings to the top of the frame for places to store air tools when not in use.

I have done that as well as used my engine crane to lift the V8 Bug body up so I could roll the chassis out from under it. I have also used both the engine crane and come-a-long to raise the Bug body up.

I'm sure, it's not new to most folks but, I used my 225 Arc welder as a frame cutter last night. Cranked it all the way up and grabbed a big fat rod. Once it struck it zipped right through the metal. I felt like a Jedi Knight.

norville-- You can buy a rod holder that compressed air hooks up to and use a carbon rod for that purpose. Works good. Pops

YES IT DOES!! Learned that the hard way!

I built the A frame extra wide, but used a pipe inside the cross over pipe. Then added the bridge over it. I picked up the front of my Chevy p/u with it, with no problem.
Everyone says I overkill, everything that I build.

I added 8" rubber tire casters to the A frame, plus a tow bar attachment. I can hook the 4 wheeler to it, and use it outside now.

To un-seize a seized engine:

soak the cylinders with ATF or whatever oil you choose. Then take a spark plug, remove everything from it but the threaded part, weld a grease fitting to it, and pump grease into the motor until it moves. Nothin like hydraulic pressure to get things moving! Only downside is you have to remove the head to clean the grease out, but if the motor was seized its probably going to happen anyway

PoorBoy Paint booth?????










Sorry, didn't get a pic of the fan I installed at that filter. There is another 24"x24" filter that allows fresh air into the PoorBoy Paint booth.

And it works well as many of you know.
