Re: Motorized Wheelbarrow sonny Yesterday at 06:44 PM
I guess it could be painted after I finish it! lol! -- MOST of the yellow parts are gone, only the wheels are yellow now. The rest is green, motor is black.
Not sure I will keep the 15.5 hp Kohler on it as the coil might be dead. --- I have an 8 hp Kaw. that might be a lot lighter. Not sure how much hp will be needed since it only has to run the hydro unit and no mower deck also not carrying a person.
It only has to move at a walking speed for my use around here.
Skidloaders do the far out work, but inside the yard fence and small garden they are too big to get around with very easy.
I wanted this to move homemade dirt from piles into the garden and narrow/light unit would be perfect. Could even use my water tote on it and go right down the rows.

I used this wrap from Amazon. So far so good, it came with some stainless steel clamps but I used hose clamps on the ends. Haven't really run it enough to see if it will hold up. Definitely have to wear gloves with it.

Not much more with the car. got the engine mounts all bolted down & adjusted but when I went to put the new tranny mounts in the bolt holes didn't line up. New set on the way and a slave cylinder for the clutch... I did get the rack & pinion steering back in though.[Linked Image from live.staticflickr.com]

Need Sorghum Mill/press ideas sonny 02/22/2020 12:54 AM
I am still looking for an old cane mill and still no luck so I think one can be made with some creative ideas.
Looks like most of the old factory ones have 3 rollers in them. 2 smaller ones and a big one running down on the center of the 2.
Original ones are cast iron and that wont be a problem because I wanted to use steel to make one.
All 3 rollers have power to them and the big one runs at different speed that the smaller ones.
Instead of cast gears for the drive, I think heavy roller chain,--say #80 will handle the load. Nothing high speed here as these are designed for slow rotation.
Ideas are needed! ---- I can't find any plans on the internet, so it would be "design-as-you-go" build!
This would be only used for small private use, so nothing fancy needed.

When I'm using the backhoe on my mini hoe ALL 4 wheels are off the ground.

could use more weight on the back when I have a bucket full on the loader though.

Re: micro pressbrake bunkclimber 02/19/2020 09:41 PM
Im so cramped for work space It drives me crazy, if Im looking for something it's in one of three spots,so a lot of walking and digging thru bins and cabinets..Im going to move south in a few years and WILL put up a steel building to work out of and FINALLY organize my parts and shop..so for today I cut out some longer caster mounts for the pressbrake out of some 3"c-channel scrap; it was tippy as built,when you moved the brake you had to be careful not to pull too hard sideways or it would tip over..more than once I had a disaster but it survived..so wider caster wheel mounts were in order..only after cutting them did I discover two different runs of 3"c-channel with different leg heights side for side..musta been some irregular runs of channel! just another challenge..

I got these on AMAZON. Only $85.99 for the pair. They were plug and play. So far I love them...

All of our fuel here has gone to crap!---they dump alki. in the gas and bean oil in our diesel fuel and it wrecks our old engines.

Re: NW Pennsylvania Shop Modifications. sonny 02/12/2020 03:21 PM
Weather and health problems have me kinda grounded here for a while! I need to do more work on the "new" skidloader but can't hack the mud/wet/cold/snow yet, still too weak.
Need to put a big patch on the west end of the greenhouse since the last 45 mph wind came blasting thru here a while back and sucked another hole in the wall!
