    Nice gear you have there. I keep some 1.5 & 2” blk or galv sch 40 pipe for rollers. The extra diameter allows you to be able to tip and steer the load more easily.

    I routed some 1/4” dadoes in the legs of a bookshelf I am building. The panel is 5/16” so I figured I’d plane it down to 1/4”. Not begin smart enough to take the easy way I decided I’d break out the...

    I retired at 70 and it took a while to understand that I no longer had to answer the bell. I have done so. Not a small thing when you have worked for 60 yrs. I’m not a psychologist but upcoming big...

    Forks

    Dave, these are the forks for my BX’s 2”x.019 riser with a pretty heavy 3” channel. I thought I would need to weld some gussets at the bottom of the 2” but have not had any problem as they are shown....

  17. Make your own

    I think Rod’s plan is the best design. If you can do a nice clean job cutting the angle iron and get a good fit up it will be a good beginner welding process for you. Try to have your friend assist...
