      Table looks awesome, and the work in progress pics show great attention to detail. Nice work.

      very slight curve in the top, gotta shear off the far edges where the radius get worse.

          Thanks. You're right. I like coming here to see all the projects guys are working on. I wish I had some of the welding skills I see here.

            Last weeks project.

            Designed so the 2x6 can be replaced simply and easily if needed. They wanted $600 or more for a similar door at the tack shop. I have about $100 and 5 hours into this one.

              If all I was doing was pulling a trailer it might be a different story the 3 bolt holes on the rear of the corners is for the bolt on tail roll, the 1/2" plate up front is for the 15K hydraulic winch.. The 3" square holes (now covered) is for the winch poles.. show me an aluminum bed I can do that to..
              So you basically have a truck that's capable of being used like an oilfield "gin truck"?

                Was originally a chrome plating shop, and has had many other owners throughout the years. I purchased this 3 years ago.Tore it down last january and hope to have everything inside completed by march.
                i wouldn't want to drink well water from under this place. The site looks like it was contaminated since about the time George Washington was rowing across the Potomac river.

                    Pneumatic Can Crusher

                    I love this thing! It makes recycling cans fast and easy, which comes in handy since my other half drinks at least a 6 pack of Coke a day (trying to get her to switch to Zero or Diet)
                    Anyway it's made from an air cylinder with a 7" stroke, a momentary air switch, some scrap 4" angle iron and some scrap 2" strap.

                    Here it is:


                    Load a can:


                    Pull the switch to expand the cylinder:


                    The cans automatically fall through the slot in the angle iron into the recycle container. I can process cans as fast as I can load them!

                      Another Project

                      Some tube fenders for my Jeep CJ.

                      The inner fenders are made from 16 gauge stainless with a #4 finish
                      for good looks and corrosion resistance. The rest is .120 wall DOM
                      tubing x 1 1/4" and 14 gauge carbon steel.







                      The indent in the top side of the tubing is for some LED marker lights.
                      And I plan on lining the wheel side rear portion and upper (bottom) with
                      Rhino Lining for protection from road/off road debris.

                            Years ago one of the morning shows showed a guy who had one of those (his was red) anyway he had over 2,000,000 miles on it. He was asked if he'd consider selling it and his reply was "Not for anything less than a dollar for every mile I have on it". Let us see the progress on it and the finished results. Those are cool cars!

                              Yes the ground water is undrinkable.Mainly from another nearby business that dumped chemicals containing tetrachloroethylene in the late '80's. Also an underground jetfuel pipeline leaked fuel from a nearby militarybase.There has been an ongoing effort for the last 10 years to clean it up. According to the latest report they have shown no further signs of contamination.(The airbase was the first flight training center started by the Wright brothers)

                                Two of my projects

                                This is a 1976 MG Midget I restored in 1993. I removed the front rubber bumper and filled in openings on front of the fenders. I made the grill of aluminum. The park/turn lights which used to be in the rubber bumper are now mounted behind the grill. It looks cool when the lights are on. It has the 1500 cc engine. I repaired the interior and dyed it black. It was a faded camel
                                color. The color is Corvette Torch Red. My brother and I painted it in my shop. I did all the body and mechanical work. Sorry about the photo quality.
                                I took digital pictures of 3.5 x 5 photos. All I had.
                                The last pic is another project of mine. It is of my daughter and a friend. I had help with her.
                                She's a 1975 model.
