I got this Grumman stepvan out of a JY. Had 29K miles on it. took me about 20 minutes to get it running, steering column was locked up and would not shift. Loosened the mounting bolts so I could turn the entire column to make it go in gear and drove it out of the JY. 6.2 diesel, 400 auto. Put all new brake parts on it including lines just to be safe. runs and drives A1!.

Today's find.... 1/21/17

It took me awhile to find out what it was . It's the bottom half of a Yankee
vise. I found and bought the top part off E-bay...
After I get it and mount it I will post another picture.

 smiley_bounce  Well, that's the best smiley I could find to say I'm green with envy.  I have a Bench Master milling machine.  They made some really nice stuff.  Not sure what I'd do with a punch press, but it would sure be cool to have!  If you were so inclined, you could make a living off of all the nice things you get your hands on.  But, I know you'd rather add to you little collections... :D

She might be better off selling to the FF members and/ or local folks.  The IRS loves estate sales , all that extra money puts you in the big bracket of the people that" don't pay their fair share"

Wifie complanes that I don't sell some of my stuff now.
I said ... Why? All I would get for it is money.What would I
do with money? Just buy more stuff. I already got what I want.
Everyday I can walk out to one of my shops and play with things
that i don't even remember having. It's a dream world that I don't
want to give up. Just looking at the stuff gives me pleasure.
I don't think I will ever stop collecting. I could post so many pictures
if things in my collections that people would get sick at looking at them.
This is just a sample of one of my buildings...

K
I have already seen some pretty neat background in pictures that you were not highlighting your stuff in.  You build a sawmill and I look at all the stuff in the picture not just the saw mill.  I doubt I get tired of it.

Now we understand why K built a sawmill. He needed lumber for buildings to keep his "stuff" in  ;D I'm envious...

Dang K, not only nice equipment, but clean and neat areas to work/dream/play in.  I am envious of you and your type of people with this trait.  I am of the PHD methodology, Piled Higher/Deeper.   Very nice.
