tech69 Today my youngest gets baptized so today it's cleaning up the house and making some home made potato salad to go with the Costco Pizza. Easy enough.
I would like to get on this pedal car project sometime this week, or at least make a side template and get one side started so I can start looking at what beads I need to use and get drawn into the art of wire edging. Don't plan on buying $300 hemming dies so I'll have to do most of it by hand. I can at least start part of the fold with the brake before I put beads all over it. I usually don't go full bore til I get my hands dirty. Just posing around right now.

Stripping

Got some more stripping done on the '54 chassis this week including a weld repair to an old repair that was a mess - was strong but ugly. Forward, forward, forward.....

Still planning to drive my '54 by the time I'm 54.

tech69 just tested it out and it works flawlessly. It certainly takes a while of running it thru over and over but it's ok. The good thing is that there's always a grain of sorts running down the tube(not sure what it is) and I use that as a marker cause it will want to twist on you during the first couple runs after tensioning it down. After the first two runs it don't want to twist til you tighten it up more. Your hands is enough to keep it straight though. So the stand has been a huge win for the garage in terms of organization and being able to open up the garage so when we get a new car the garage can also be used for parking...damn it! This is a home shop not a garage to park cars!

tech69 It might rock back and forth a little but don't think it will be an issue. We'll see.

I put casters w/ brakes on my tubing roller stand and am thrilled. It was terribly heavy with the roller and dies on one stand and in my garage I'd like to keep stuff to the side when not in use so I'm very happy about this. I also tried to put some on my bead roller and it made it extremely unstable. Right now I have it buried behind the roller stand but will have to do something about that asap. It's my daughters favorite "daddy's toy" so I have to make it more safe so she can have her fun changing dies and turning the wheel.

I have never used one so I don't know but I would think that tubing roller would terribly unstable on the wheels. I even thought the base of the legs is too small but you copied one on the market right? I will have to see the thing in operation to understand. It just seems like that tool would go all over the place in use wanting to fall over.

MARTINSR Below is the only flame job I have ever done for money. It's so funny that I have drawn flames on zillions of things, it's the only thing I can draw. But this is the only time I ever painted them. I took this photo in 2000 where this truck is parked still today and has been since I painted it in 1977! NO KIDDING!
