Helping Out the Old Man

So Dad had dinner with us the other night, he was due to pick up a Tractor at Wilbur-Ellis here in Genesee the next morning. So, naturally, I was recruited to help. I don’t know where it was going, but I got to help him load it in the freezing cold temperatures. and by god, it was freaking cold!

Here are the pics.

The Tractor:

Worked out pretty nice, although he busted a hose, and had to rigged it to get by til he could fix it properly.

Winter Project Update

So, as some of you blog followers know, I found this old tank behind Craig Knott’s house, and I  wanted to build something out of it. So here is an update. I’ll probably post a final Before and After photo once I get it painted and looking decent. It’s rough right now. But it’ll get there.

I found some scrap wire weave in the junk pile, so I cut a circle out.

This was the updated hinge, I wanted something I could easily pull out to get the door off.

Here is the door handle, I built from a piece of pipe, and an old truck spring.

Here is the old truck exhaust, complete with a chrome tip (that needs shined up.)

Here is the hole we cut with the plasma cutter to fit the truck exhaust.

After we got it all welded in and set up, we decided to give it a trial run. so we got a fire started in it.

image

It still needs sanded, cleaned, and painted, but its defiantly a start. should be good to cook on by June with some minor tweaks.

Until next time.

I think that catches me up for the past month. hopefully it doesn’t take me this long to post again.
