    That's one big bucket of flux, I never knew they sold it that big, Nice Work, I come from a background of having to fix others 'Fine' work.....it does sound as if you made out good 'hiring' a customer to be a salesman. Something we can all learn from...Thanks,Paul

    Default alum. bulk head

    a good friend brought this bulk head by. and wanted me to streten it up and weld the cracks up. he was hauling two i-beams that was 2in thick by 12in high by 40ft long. he was in gary IN. when there was a power outage at night. stop lights was not working.but he had to set the bracks for some resine. and the i-beams broke the binders and slamed into the bulk head and sleeper. they took it to a welding shop to get fix. and charge him 550$ for 3hrs of work. when i got it look like it needed to be scrap.i bet my 7 year old could of done a better job.but he wanted it fixet. it took two 1-ton chian hoist and a backhoe and a lot of beating and 8hrs. i only charge him 250$ i know it was not enough. but he is a veitnam vet.and works his a** off at what he does. I DO REPECT OUR VETERANS!!! i still get work from him.

    Default finished work

    I have been trying to post pictures of the completed repair and I keep getting a message saying bandwidth exceeded, If I can figure out to resize the photos, I'll try to post them. To do this repair I cut off all the old crap with my trusty torch and cookie wheel on a grinder. I cut back just far enough to get a good straight cut with plasma cutter across the tailgate. I removed the two pieces of shaft that was there and replaced it with one piece of 1 7/16" shaft and drilled each end about 6" and then through the side for grease fittings to be used with the brass bushings and sleeves I made to go over shaft. In the open space inside the tailgate I made 3 pieces of 3/8" plate to support the shaft. Everything was bushed and drilled for grease and then held in place with set screws. In other words the shaft is easily replaced if necessary in the future. On both ends I used 1/4" plate to cap the ends and the same across the entire top of tailgate, the 1/4" inch plate across the inside of the tailgate was fitted so it lays flush with the existing skin. Now that I have completely confused you all, I will try to post picts again so you can see what I was trying to explain. Dave

    Cool

    While it is easy to say that could have been done better, fact of matter is you can do factory work in the repair and IT WILL NOT HOLD UP to operators who do not now how to operate the equipment, or Foremen who says load'er up and get the dirt moved. And the excavator operator does saying its overloaded, and the driver twists off the drive shaft getting going. There you are. My rep is it looks like factory, it is factory when I get done. My warranty is good till they start it up or hit the brakes whichever comes first. Caterpillar placards state "Continuous loading in excess of 72000 pounds shortens frame life", and the boss has me adding 12 in side boards. Ever see excavator bucket pins installed with 2 D9 dozers? Me? I'm happy for the work and keep on smiling.

    if you have microsoft XP here is a great resizer, you can do hole folders at once, dont even have to open the pic to resize it.

    Lightbulb

    bummer, looks like it wont work with the new win. vista eather. thats kinda stupid, its the only thing i like about win.XP and when this comp takes a dump and they make me get vista on my new comp it wont work. man i hate microsoft.
    maybe i'll just have to save up and get a mack. windows is realy getting out of controle, heck i'm still downloading patches for XP and they have a new system out WTF i'll bet it dosent work without 40 downloads at time of purchase too right.
    sorry i got lost for a minuit.
    start a thread asking for an image resizer i know there are some others out there with diferent programs. i have herd of them but as mine worked i didnt pay atention.
