I like the movable vice. Is that a flywheel it's on?? LOL i used a flywheel and a piece of fence pipe , welded up with a flat plat on it. Then went to wall mart and got a cheep fan to bolt on it. Now I got a fan that I can move around and hits me in the face or blows stuff around at shoulder hight.

Its a plow disc from Central Tractor. I think it was $18.00 or something. Light and easy to move, yet stable.

Charlie...It looks pretty cool alright. Did you lag it into the wall studs? I like your taste in calenders too. Are those pics from Canada or Overseas?

I'm so glad I started this thread. It is so cool to share what is made based on need & ingenuity. I love IROC100's Deer dresser.

I just got some aluminum slots that need cleaning & polishing. After stareing at an empty engine stand and some scrap steel - I whipped up a bracket that holds 1 wheel at a height that doesn't kill my back while I buff.

Gonna build another bracket that'll hold an 8.8 rear end while I R&R that too. I just hate to see an empty engine stand sitting there doing nothing...

The Welding bench is in my Project Journal. I can upload one for the vice as well. The pics in the journal can be enlarged. There are a bunch for the welding bench in all phases opf construction. Also, there are a bunch of pics from Gene Winfields shop. TONS of ideas there, for home built stuff.

Here's a couple things I've done in the last while. I should have really spent more time on my truck and bought the stands instead. As far as I know these 3 legged stands are not legal in some areas. You have to be careful how you use them.....

Here's a pic of the mini shop press I made 15 years ago as a school project. I've hauled it around for all these years and used it only a dozen times. (Abused it mostly because it is undersized) I cant bear to get rid of it though....

David Gingery has a lot of very useful books out there. Check Amazon- i know in one he goes step by step in building a sheet metal brake.

Here's some of my projects, this is my most used and my favorite, it has turned my shop into a winter heaven! A guy at work gave me the diamond plate, I have about $150 in the whole thing including the pipe out and all. Heats a 30 X 36 building no problem in the winter with 15' ceilings, wish I would have built it years ago!

Someone wanted to see a grinder stand, well here's mine, made totaly from scrap, rear rotor from my Silverado, some 1 1/4 square and some angle. Works just fine, is portable, and took me 15 minutes to make it and cost nothing, I love it when a plan comes together
