    Default Finished Welded Art

    Here is my latest creation. It is a John Deere 70 tractor with a mounted No.100 one row sugar beet harvester. Titled "1950's Harvest In The Yellowstone Valley".

    It is "all" welded with a Millermatic 130 using .023" wire. This was commisioned by a friend who owns a John Deere Dealership. It came out so good I started making two more. One for myself and another to sell.

    For this one I had to snip out 400 sugar beet leaves from 22 ga cold rolled. The hardest part was the tractor rear tires. Had to make a mold in oak for half a tire, beat the sheet metal into it. Weld the two halves together down the center, grind it back, weld the tire bars on at each end, then grind the tire bar welds back. Tried bending 5/8" rod but it wouldn't bend smooth enough. I probably have about 250 hours in this.

    Jan.14,10 The two that I have finished took me 120 hours each. Made both at the same time. Less time then I thought. Kept a time log. Got them finished and immediately sold one to an aquaintance in Oregon.

    A former neighbor has commissioned me to do an International Harvester Model M with a mounted two row cornpicker with wagon in a corn field. Can't wait to start on the corn stocks. Something different. Have the tractor about done. See Ref. below:

    Default I commend you on your work

    looks good.I also bet you are a very calm person with a lot of patience.Among other things the tire molding is above and beyond, Others may have just gotten a rubber tire somewhere,but details like that are what make you a craftsman.Mike

    That is without a doubt one of the finest welded sculptures I've seen. Excellent. Now you know what you will be when you grow up.

    I have a 1954 JD 70 and like to restore the old machinery so your tractor is special. But your workmanship is Awesome, just plain Awesome.

    That is fantastic work. And talk about patience I wish I had just a sample of yours.
    Your work should be submitted in a contest.
