Part 2 of Donewrken's homemade tractor build . . . and all around garage kibitzing thread. :D
:biglaugh:

Thanks MOD's for taking care of business and thanks TUDOR for the addendum to the title.
We all hope this will all come together completing the build and may we all gain some knowledge and appreciation for the friendships that have developed in the process.
Thanks also to MTF for the great opportunity they've given us to share our thoughts and ideas.


I'm trusting you all that it (part one) didn't go away!:ROF

Now presenting :cool: My Latest Project - Part Two
:woohoo1:


Thanks

Lets hope all the folks from the old find the new one. It takes the whole village .....
There is no escaping Mikey . . . .
and yes , it is a joint effort - I'll leave off any village remarks - other than I'm sure they will find their way.
Thanks Mikey

Wheelgun1 Re: My latest Project - Part Two
Yeah that's right give it to him
Easy there , you wouldn't want to invoke any bad tractor karamal (sp) the payback could be The Dreaded Fluid leaking from everywhere - even from places that do not have any :ROF

Ha ha ! Thanks

Stuff is hanging like it's a meat locker out in the shop and paint booth walls are being employed !!

Stay tuned !!

Don, your original thread is now closed with a link to this thread in the last post.

That gives you about 3 more years to get this project finished. :eek:mg::duh:

Pitter patter, son! :sidelaugh :sidelaugh :sidelaugh

Shouldn't this thread be called "The gang's random thoughts, youtube finds, and backslappings"...

The first sunny day after two weeks of storm has just dawned here in southern Portugal; that means laundry and housework for me, and repair of a shed door.

My projects are languishing in the workshop, whispering seductive entreaties that none else can hear.

Mmmm. suppose it could be and - a place to just hang out. :)

Stormy weather for you is what , like 75 and light showers ?

Resist them , ear plugs - headphones - hum off key and tap your foot. . . . . .
Aawwww what the heck go listen to them , maybe they'll tell you something you didn't know about !

Progress


The Paint Booth




Drop clothes from HF and three sticks of emt that were laying outside . hanging off TIG filler rods recently purchased - almost like I planned it.

Lots of room , just needed to unbolt & scoot the seat over
now there's plenty of standing room on the tractor.

Well maybe so , but I bet you won't end up with as many leftover parts as me !

Huh ? :dunno:

:biglaugh:

As Hydronerd once mentioned this is the second tractor during that time frame.
The long part of the second one was proving the concepts , working around and through some obstacles and gathering the proper parts & putting them in place.
Now were to the re-assemble stage with only a few re-do's / re-fit's and tidy-up's , having already proved as a whole - it works.

Boy that convinced me anyway. :)

Haha !

then swept up the sand and re-used it.....cause I'm really cheap!!!

and that is why you hold the record for blasting a Cameo frame with only a half a bag of sand.

Did you
wear a dust mask or just hold your breath ..... cause they cost too much ?

Like I said we would all miss your adventures :fing32:
