    15' drain trench project

    started this last week,, i sawed this gully and grate support system out of one piece of solid concrete... it will have a 4in drain pipe at the end that will take the water about 25feet away.

    the metal for the grate will be here at the end of the week,,, so it will be a few days until i get to the building/welding of the grate,,, its going to sit right on the ledges i made.

    i used my k960 gas saw for the down cuts and a 4/12 grinder with diamond blade installed to get at the side cuts for the supports.

    its a complicated cut,,, it also has a "V" cut at the very bottom to help drain every bit of water out,,, so you dont have standing water.

    ill add more pictures after i get my steel.

    im also doing frame offs on a 65gto conv and a 53/54 chevy custom pickup right now,,, ill post some pictures of those later this week.

    i have completed 2 of the 3 grates and will paint these black after im done.

    i tig welded all my tube frames and pressure tested them to 10psi to guarantee that no water will get inside the frames and cause rust.










    more pictures to come,, after its painted

    Total BS.

    Pack it & find something productive to do besides waste bandwith.

    You're full of it & you know it.

    Stugots , you remind me of a high school classmate of mine. Most people hated JP as he was arrogant , rude , disrespectful, you name it. I got to know him better than most as many would simply not waste their time . Deep down he had some good in him but his lack of respect for himself certainly meant he would have none for anyone else or receive any from anyone. He went around offending people and kicking ass everywhere he went with no regard to karma. Funny thing is when he was found shot in the head duct taped to a chair the local law inforcement ruled it a suicide. He had been a thorn in everyones a$$ for so long including the local police they weren't about to waste one second of there time looking for the hero that ended many peoples misery with this prick. Reap what you sow and remember ignorance is bliss. One last thing by you boasting about your mental disorders you just opened the door to someone blasting your a$$ and walking scott free.

    We have had the Milwaukee saw for about 6 months now and are very pleased with it. We added a folding stand with a swivel assembly for the saw which made it a whole lot easier to move, set up, and use. The stand is a Delta miter saw/planer stand. The swivel is a 12" lazy Susan bearing.

    Milwaukee/ Dewalt both cheap knock off copies of the origional. Jepson Dry cut saw. Much more money and much heavier duty. I have and use the 9312s .

    If you paid more than 339 WITH a blade you got a free shafting....

    insanity and deliberate ignorance triumphs over money any day of the week on my street, so i have that going for me.

    also,,, i decided not to get the Milwaukee after reading more reviews about those blades.... so i just picked up a dewalt 14" up at the home depot this morning.

    now im off to weld up the grates for this trench
