Its raining here today and i cant dig potatoes so im getting to spend some time on my press project. There will be a lot of mill time and a little welding go into it and i thought id treat it like a grow for those of you who arent familiar with machine work. This first piece is the support base for my hydraulic jack, it will get welded to the cross brace at some point. Typically ill build all the pieces before doing any welding because i can better See how its all going to look and function. Im all about how it looks, i tell people if you make stuff shiney enough the sizes can all be wrong and people will still appreciate your work. Youll never know how perfect my work is because the paint or powder coat will be awsome!!! Time for this operation / 45 min. Follow along if you like, this will take a bit because its not the only thing going right now. Hope its interesting to someone.
