    New use for old Kitchen Unit

    Started this several years ago. Had kept back an old Top Box unit from the old 1962 units when I ripped out the old kitchen of my workshop property.. Units were fixed to the walls with Cut Floor Brad nails !, so not easy to save undamaged. The Units were good quality wood with machined Dovetails - I managed to get 2 slices of about 6 inch sections to make 2 Storage boxes for my machine tools. I also had a good old sheet of 1/2" Mahogany Marine Ply for the bases and Lids, so I made them in the style of the old Georgian Military Campaign Chests. Bases are Glued and Screwed (18 in each) to carry at least 20 kgs of bits- The Lift Handles and Lever Latches were obtained in an old Ironmonger type shop in France, but I had to make the Brass Catch Plates set into the lids. Outside surfaces were dark stained and built up layers of Yacht Varnish roughly applied until the wood grain was filled, along with inside bases and Lids. Got more Brass corner plates to make, but more or less ready for the insides to be sectioned for the various tool layouts. Last few days I've been making a little stowage box for the recently obtained Dial Indicator. Measures 4 x 3 x 2. 3/4"- Also utilised an old Reserve Port Box with sliding lid for storage of my Surface Gauge (just long enough)-

    Project Wheel-Vo... Running gear found.

    Thanks mate, yep crazy it certainly will be Hi Koen, it will be interesting to see what the front end does under power.. The brain says the front wheels should lift, but.... at least 75% of the weight will be at the front, so..... ??? Let's start this small update with a video shall we? To keep Nigel happy, here's a pic of him actually driving the forklift as the engine was moved from a pallet to a four wheel'd trolly thingy. Though I think the forklift fumes may of gone to his head a bit With the pallet out the way we could plonk parts in more or less the right place.. For the comedy value the wheels were put where they would be on a standard WH... A bit narrow me thinks I like this view, with the wonky wheels and panels it kinda looks like a wacky cartoon I'm trying to be good and get MadTrax finished before I start on this build, but you just know I have to have a fiddle and make a start even if it's only getting everything in the right place so I can take some measurements.. A lot to work out first before I can even think about making a chassis! And to finish this update, have another video.. Wheel-Vo part 2.

    I have one on the bench in restoration process and another one possibly coming soon. Other than the Montgomery Wards 2.3 Featherweight (Remington Yardmaster) they are all the lowest productions Homelite models made between 1965 and 1980

    this project came about after a few beers(best ideas come when drinking) we had a vw caddy that wouldnt run(ecu went swimming) and a dodge daytona with a broken steering rack and after some carefull guesstimating we started hacking the two apart to make one. its still a work in progress since we cant shift from the driving seat and we lost drive thats the front end of a dodge daytona shelby z and here's the caddy lowered on to it and here's a little vid from the first propper test drive https://photos.app.goo.gl/HBhnE4hMhRuK1vvk7

    If Alan's going to be there, I suppose I'll have to bring the Sears/Roper.

    Went to a RPT meeting last night and the show is really coming together. We now have someone to do program's for the show and all the exhibitors will be listed. We've sent out a lot of entry forms for the Horticultural section but not many people have returned them, can you please send your entries in so I can organise the program. If anyone else needs a entry form PM me and I can email you one
