Daily Fabrication Thread
« on: January 29, 2018, 09:49:04 AM »
Just figured it'd be handy for there to be a place where anyone can post up pics of what they built or broke this week, without it hijacking someones thread.



This is a dumper i made this week from a severely bent car trailer axle someone gave me that i shortened, and some wire decking and struts from a pallet rack, plus a chicom lift id welded a boat winch on years ago, and some conduit bracing to resist soak up the twist. 

Me and my son have been cutting and splitting OWB fuel for an old man on his pasture and my truck just cant drive out there, but his 4wd quad can so itll solve that problem.  I only get paid if the wood comes out and gets dumped in a carport.  Small loads to keep from tearing up the field.



Not a terrible place to work.

Id do better to bait it with a little copper wire and some meth tied to a 12gauge trigger!

Tiny forwarder. Well, kind of a cross over. Cross between a skidder and a forwarder.

Mike do you have pictures of making those ring chains you built for your tractor? What size round bar did you use for the rings?

 One more project that will be wrapped up this week. Like anything I didn't ask around enough and bought a set of axles that needed more love than I knew about, what should have taken a few weekends took 3 months but it's done now, lack a few things and some new lights and she can be back in the woods. 

 
 took some work to gut the old axles and suspension, all new brakes, cans, replaced every piece of air on the whole thing.

Found em.. These are the jigs, one on each side of a cutoff, clamped in vice and had a torch holder and a rod holder so while i was working one the next was heating up.

Works great on valve seats and dry sleeves too.  Nice stick holster on the trailer.

Did you bend the rings hot or cold?

I don't know why I never thought of making my own chains. I think of making everything else
I knew what I thought I meant.

Red hot.  Dont bother trying to duplicate until you build either a wood fired or waste oil fired rod heater.

Technically finished this last week, but this is my log loader.  A chain connected to each end goes over a farm jack and lifts log up level with the mill and then I can roll it on with a hook.  Im not much of a welder, so most of it was welded by a guy at the firehouse.
