    Anybody have pictures of anything they have completed recently or something they are working on they would like to share (brag about)?

    Due to confidentiality nothing I can talk about or show. It was quite complex and took a little over 2 months to complete.

    I hear that. I've signed more than one non disclosure agreement myself. I'll start posting some of my own projects as soon as I get another digital camera.
    Sometimes there's no second chances.

    Default Not welding related...but

    I've almost got my 1970 Chevy 3/4 ton running around.

    Picked up a 454 with TH 400,

    http://c4.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/i...952afa58ff.jpg

    Did a leak down...thought the motor was great. Checked the bearings...they were destroyed...Rebuild time! Found out it was bored .060, so it is a 468...a little more displacement never hurts :P

    Replaced the factory crank, with a cast steel Scat version, with new main and rod bearings. Plenty good for the power I'll make. New cam bearings, new Edelbrock cam, gasket matched heads and intake, new valvesprings, crane roller rockers, Melling high volume oil pump, new ARP rod bolts, Edelbrock performer rpm intake, new weiand water pump...and there is still more going into it.

    Just need a new flexplate, starter, and carburetor. Motor should be complete, and bolted back to the trans by the end of the weekend, except those 3 parts.

    I guess I have one of the trans, when it was still apart. TransGO shift kit. Mildly boosted line pressure, control of manual low at any speed...and some other cool stuff.

    And because I've posted a few things about this truck...but never pictures, here are a few more.

    That trailer is 17.5' That might help put the rest of the truck in perspective.

    That's my current project though!
    Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.

    Nice! One of the best styles of truck ever made IMO.

    Default Swivel shooting bench

    This is my first project with my new MM252 I purchased last fall. There was some welding, some machine work and some woodwork. Not completely done yet, still deciding on a final size and shape for the top and the length of the arm for the seat. Each leg can be individually adjusted for uneven ground and the whole thing swivels 360 degrees. I use it to shoot at (educate) groundhogs. I already posted this under a different thread. Also tried to put it into the projects pictures but it never showed up. I had my brother who outweighs me by nearly 100 lbs sit on it to test my welds. It will never move with me on it. Every place that moves with metal on metal has a bronze bushing in it. I tried to do as "professional" of a job as I could. After this past winter I'm thinking of building a cab for my compact tractor as my next project.

    Whack a mole with gunpowder and lead, L.O.L. That's a fine looking bench, sure beats laying on the ground.

    We call them "Whistle Pig's" out here, and I have been known to educate a few myself. Good job on the bench!

    Cool

    Here are a few jobs i have been doing this week. The first one is the Plant Stands. I do lots of them esp this time of year.
    Speaking of this time of year its The Steel Valley Super Nationals right now in my town and driveshaft work is doing well. Just finished my 123rd and 3rd this week. Seems like everyone forgets they need a shaft cut down for their ride...Bob
