Theres also a thread using a reversable drill that looks quick and ez.just mount the drill and hook up a floor switch using a cable that goes to the trigger switch on the drill its not only reversable its variable speed..Pretty cool stuff...
This is one of my favorite threads too,John ..I wake up every morning ,get my coffee and turn on the computor then see what you've done...Its almost as good as working on my own stuff,which I can never find time for..

The drill idea sounds pretty interesting too. I had thought about a sewing machine motor and pedal but I think it would take a pretty good gear reduction to get enough power and control.

I'll bet there are lots of good ideas if I research it.

The thread helps keep me motivated to get something done. i am still looking forward to you getting back on the plymouth.

foot pedal reverse

I decided on Jim Stabe's instructions because of the foot pedal reverse. When I was taking the street rod fabrication class at UVU a few years ago they had some beading dies that they demonstrated in the air powered planishing hammer, the lower die had tab welded to it that they held in place with a hose clamp and you just guided the panel thru by hand, free hand. No one made anything using it because they had lots of dies for the pullmax, and a lot of them were ones students made. I used the College bead roller with variable speed and it's nice but the geared down winch motor and tapping the foot pedal works for me

HF Hammer

Our dies ar rough, I need to polish and reharden with casinite. I made up a bunch of tool mounts, 1 in sq stock welded to 6 X 6 plate plate, and a couple of different height stands with the slip in tubing, also tubing welded to the flat bed truck and low trailer. We have mounted the planishing hammer , vise, pipe vise bead roller, tubing drill fixture nibbler, etc, I also have the tubing receivers welded to the southworth lift table around the edge some square and some at 45* . When my son was doing his lakester he hung the planishing hammer on a teeter-toter plank with a chain hoist. picts from the very crowded shop. Opps picts must be too large.

Not much to report. I did finish the LH inner rocker and it is almost ready to install.

I keep thinking these body mounts are going to get quicker and easier to make but I have about 4 hours in this one and it is about 2/3 of the way made. This is the LH second row mount. The RH is done.

It will be good to get these mounts and the floor board support bolted in and welded to the inner rockers. I am anxious to build the front floor pans and transmission tunnel just so there is obvious progress. All this structure is good to get replaced but to the untrained eye it is really hard to see the progress.

But didn't you have 240 minutes in the one on the other side?

Sure I did and this one is really turning out better. these mounts have a double offset as well as indentions where the seat brace and inner reinforcement goes. It is time consuming to get these details worked into the piece. All in all I can't complain.

I had a friend give me a some rather rough skirts for the car yesterday which will be great for making sure the wheel wells are in shape when I do the quarter patches. Also a speaker grill, ash tray and chrome glove box door came home. They are number 7 pieces but should chrome well and will certainly look better than what is there now.

It's nice to see progress but don't rush. These small details are extremely important even though they don't look like much.

You'll get there in a few years, no worries......
