Ya - We are slowly moving past just the cutoff saw for metal working! We now have a bandsaw for cut off - and it goes vertical as well!
Dad’s getting ready for some new stock in the lake this year - esp excited about his new flock of Grass Carp headed this way in March.
Given how sneaky those young teenage Carp are - he’s building a fish gate for the spillway.Read More
The tins are headed out to Kenny this week! I sent again and got them mocked up on the frame to make sure everything was still fitting. It looks like a bike again! That makes me so happy I could just sh*t!
We'll it has taken the better part of 8 months but I managed to move 75% of my stuff 100 miles away and then back while only losing around a third of it!
The well laid plans of mice and men.....
Now that I am back in Chester and back with lea and my youngest son (Nate) I needed somewhere to go with all of the "shop" stuff and bike stuff.
I'd spent the last 4 years working out of my dad’s place. Since we aren't really speaking still, I needed somewhere else to go with it. Lucky for me, my house has a huge garage. And by huge I mean freaking tiny! 21 x 12. So I had to take everything that I had in the shop in St Louis (which was around 4,500 sq ft) and move it into a 252 sq ft space. Not only did it all have to fit, but it had to be usable otherwise I wont have my bike back together by spring!
After a couple of weekends of moving and packing and moving again, I have most of what I need in the "shop" to finish the bike. Forget all of the car stuff and engines and sheet metal equipment. I was lucky to get a couple of benches in there plus a compressor, some welding and cutting stuff, a drill press and my small mill.
Here is what it is looking like now.
