    Sorry, it's a hoax. Do you put your car's fuel tank on the ground when you fill it? The fuel nozzle is grounded through a wire braid in the hose . . . just keep the nozzle in contact with the can. It's a much better ground than asphalt or concrete.

    When you fill the cans, do you remove them from the rack and place on the ground to fill?
    I have filled them in the rack, I am not sure if it's the best idea, but I haven't been yelled at by a gas station employee. I know that filling tanks in the back of a pickup with a plastic bed liner is a no-no.
    Here in the "People's republic of California" your not even suppose to use gas can that are not certified by the California air resource board. I hate the California legal gas cans, they supposedly don't leak the gas vapors to the atmosphere. But they leak half your gasoline when filling up equipment or a motorcycle, what kind of environmental savings is that?

    [QUOTE=moto-scoot;175582]I made a gasoline can hauler that fits a 2" receiver few weeks ago. I hate hauling gas cans inside a SUV. It's also useful on the pickup, you don't need to tie the cans to the bed of the truck.
    It was quick and cheep to build. The angle iron is a used bed frame, very hard to drill holes in it but it welded up fine with 6011 rods. Even used one of the hinged section from the bed frame to lock the two 5 gallon cans in place.[/QUOTE

    Chicken Plucker

    I decided to build a machine to pluck chickens after trying to do a few by hand. When I started building it I had no specific plans and just started welding the frame from what I had imagined I wanted it to look like. I had researched it a lot so I knew what I wanted, just didn't know how it would turn out exactly. I was very happy with the end result. This is the finished product but I have more pictures and video links on my signature.

    What ever you call it aint NOTHING coming past that.
    Your skills at fabrication are great.
    How long did it take to make?

    Blowproof Bellhousing

    I build the engines for an Alfa Romeo spider that we've been running at Bonneville for the last 10 years. We started with an Alfa transmission, but quickly found out that it couldn't handle the horsepower of the turbocharged engine . . . so the replacement (Muncie M22) required a custom bellhousing. I also decided to move the starter behind the ring gear to make room for a larger intercooler.

    Here's the finished product . . . made from 1/4 inch mild steel.
