  • Rotted tractor rim fixed.

    My brother in law called and asked if i could patch around his tractor wheels valve stem as it rotted and needed a plate. I said sure no problem do it all the time. So he dropped it off. He didn't say it needed 26" of new metal. Oh well no problem. Just needed a trip thru my flat bar rack, cut and roll some new metal and she is good to go. He can grind it however he desires...Bob

          Prob 2 hours. I walked away a few times because it was too hot out or raining.

          I hope it has a tube We had rain and 30 mph wind while i was working on it.

          I know he could have bought a new one cheaper but it was my brother in law and you all know how that goes. Plus i needed a challenge...Bob

                  Metal Master is a understatement, Howabout ( Metal God. )

                  Its amazing what people think we can fix, Often times I have to tell them ( I'm not God, Just a welder. )

                  Nice job.
