    Timber!

    You know the saying Norm. No photo's, it didn't happen. Any damage when the tote box came off. ? Better luck next trip.
  2. Very nice. Another one lives again. I sometimes wish I still had my first car to play with, a 1942 Austin 8 with soft top. Tourer ? Could tell a few story's with that one.
  3. Not metal but Wifey and I trimmed an out of control tree in garden. Lock down exercise. Lots of twigs and twiglets all cut into short pieces and stuffed into 9 assorted size bags. Can't take to the tip, even if it was open, non essential travel. Not to worry though, I have a plan.

    I finished the late to 98%.

    I put an inverter to it and a e-motor for the feed.

    The spindle has nearly no play super acurrate, very impressiv.

    Will send a movie.

     

    Best Marcel

      Thanks for the extra photo's Marcel.   :thumbs:   I can see  how the feed is connected now.     The motor and  angle drive  looks like a car or truck wiper mechanism. Or am I wrong.  Good idea.  :bow:   Do you have any projects in mind to make on the lathe. ?

      This is one of my latest projects.  Based on a Wheel Horse black hood garden tractor.  Just a rough look a like.  Started off as a non working Mobility Scooter bought cheap off Ebay.  A mixture of wood and metal.  Larger rear wheels make it go faster.  Not sure how fast yet.  Only had a few test runs in a confined space.  All scooter electrics used.  Two 12 volt 75 ah battery's.  Dummy V twin engine to hide the scooter steering column.  Chain and sprockets from column to steering wheel.  Still need to have decals made. Will take it to shows when they start up again. 5 year old grand daughter having a play.

  6. Merry Christmas and a Happier New Year to all.
  7. All the best for Christmas and the New Year Joseph and family. After having my eye's done I finally got to see Dad.
  8. I'm running out of suitable complimentary words Richard.

    Wondered how you were getting on Nigel. I see you have sorted the throttle position. A simple and easy fit.
  10. Brilliant as usual Richard. Worth waiting for.
  11. There's no such thing as being retired when you retire Norm. The closest you get is TIRED as you say.
