A couple of residual members had mentioned on another thread asking me to repost some of my projects. For lack of a specific place to put them I'll just leave it up to the Mods for the correct dispostion!

The First one is a Combination Hitch Ball and a Platform for a Front End Loader. Should anyone want construction details just send me a note!

I'll put this in Slide Show form and if there is any interest I'll post some other projects some Good and some kinda goofy. I just keep needing something so I make it!

Slide Show for FEL Platform!

Aegt5000,
I posted the thing into thin air apparently based on your request ! :bump9:
At least the G/F is worthy of a comment or two! :congrats: No?

Just teasing my friend!

Dean,

I must of missed this when you posted it. I’d like to build a smaller
version for my little loader. The slide show is ok for a general understanding
of the platform but I can’t see what’s going on inside the bucket.
Is there something that locks the bucket end of the platform and
prevents it from slipping up inside the back of the bucket?

BTW: 3 cheers for your girl friend. :congrats:
It’s great when our better half’s like to pitch in and get involved.
I remember when she added the finishing touches to the shed project you did.
Was she the first one to test the platform? I can just imagine how that
conversation went: “Don’t worry Honey, it’s safe.......I think”

Hi ,
I will try my best to explain in detail so that you can duplicate the idea! bear with me though as I will be on the road tomorrow close to Texas and back! One 45 Horse Kubota to be deliverd over 250 miles!! Says something about our sales force!!
I've seen the work that you do and I probably won't come close to matching it!!

Yes she was and you imagined wrong!! It was more like this: Hey GF get in this thing!! With your weight it will be a great stress test!!
Hey what can I say (She trusts me)!!ROF

She liked the 3 cheers though!!

I forgot to thank you for voting in my little poll!

Hi Dean,
I saw that a green house was part of your poll, and I'm always interested in green house plans. Especially if they utilize "recycled" materials like the free stuff I tend to collect out of other people's trash/dumpster/ where ever.

Hi, back at you Joe,
I have built several of these in Alaska and in Oklahoma for myself and others and it might interest you that I do not light the roof/cieling for very different reasons !
In northern latitudes the sun never gets high enough to make it worthwhile and in the mid latitudes it turns the Green house into a bake oven! as long as you face it to the South so that you can take advantage of the Early Eastern and the Late Western sun and provide adaquate ventilition to prevent O2 buildup It works great!!

Sorry the only recycled products I use are the ones from the Lumber yard through my checkbook/on to my saw horses and emerges as a finished product!! I was fortunate enough to acquire 4 sliding glass doors which when individually seperated and framed made a very effective glass curtain wall facing south and with good insulating value too! Was a major selling point for my home in Alaska!

Having just returned home from SE Oklahoma I will try to post the material that Both you and AEGT asked for this weekend G/F permitting!! YJCMTSU!

Thanks agin for your interest!!
