    Good thing I got a tilt bed trailer last year, it came in handy.. As well as borrowing some piano moving jacks..


    With rain in the forecast for Friday, we loaded up the TE150 Thursday night and left it inside. All ready for the 2+ hour drive to it's new home on Saturday..





    With our "trade-in" situated next to the newsed machine, you get a hint to the comparison in size. What you don't see is what is used on the inside. The TE150 uses 1/2" thick steel plate on the sides, the TE250 uses 1-1/4" thick steel plate. Quite a difference, and easily noticed when moving..








    Winch helps with the uphill movement..





    We made another stop and also picked up a small spinning lathe, a Model 18 DuaLathe, and a larger 3 phase converter. The motor size on the Lennox jumps from 1.5 hp to 5hp on the new one, and my present converter is a bit undersized for the occasion. All backed in the shop for the unloading ceremonies..









    Some square pads were cut out of horse mat for mounting, and 3/4" anchors sunk into the concrete..





    ….and let's not forget the requisite safety warning label..






    Still need to wire in the three phase converter, but glad all the moving is complete.

    Thanks for the pics! I could have some fun with that one. My first reaction was that's perfect for bowl turning. I've got my eyes on a couple trees with a good size burl on them. LOL. Thanks Again.

    Finished up the fuel lines at the tank, bending and flaring..











    test fit to the pump.....








    Helpful hint of the day, copper line works well for trial runs...





    Side stepped the area above the third member with the fuel line in case of extreme movement... the Adel clamps floating there will attach to the underside of the floor brace.

    Well our progress on the wagon is hard to show, other than a pile of sanded paint residue on the floor.. So let's look at the sample louvers just completed, these are rotated 15 degrees..












    The new 3 phase converter is wired in, and it sure is nice not having to swap plugs anymore.. this one has three outputs.

    Ok, cool. I thought maybe you were going to graft them into the 55 somewhere and I was thinking, "What???" LOL!!!

    Very nice job on the louvers. Cool design, how you make them perfect is way above my metal working abilities

    Busy weekend! Saturday we got the power window mechanisms cut to length, and installed for the rear windows. We found some 1/4-20 x 1" standoffs about perfect for spacing the vertical part where it needed to be for locating the window track centered in the opening..





    Lock nuts used to keep the spacer from spinning during attachment...





    1/4-20 Rivnut added to secure the top..









    Track is pretty well centered....





    Also made a bracket for the Diacro No. 1A bender so we can use it in our universal stands..















    Sunday was the Coming Out Car Show put on by the Southern Knights Rod and Custom Car Club. We got Brad to bring his car out for the event. It's like a magnet, he was answering questions all day. We had some metal fabrications on display, and I enjoyed talking to many people about their projects, welding processes, and our fabrication capabilities.

    We need to do another spray out test panel, so we can nail down the top color to accent the green. These car bodies just aren't big enough to do a two tone...……..






    ….so we fabricated a fake quarter panel using the Tommasini wheeling machine, and sprayed it with some epoxy primer. We'll get it blocked on Saturday and spray the bottom using Organic Green Kandy Basecoat, and spray the top with Galaxy gray, to see how well those two go together...
