    Lego UNIMOG build

    As noted in my Lego collection thread I ordered the UNIMOG set. It showed up Tuesday morning via FEDEX. This is a huge set, at 2048 pieces! 16 bags of parts plus the wheels/tires, an electric motor and the battery box. There was four sets of bags, numbered 1-4, with varying number of bags...

    New project.

    As I'm sure many on here (that live in the snow belts) know, the snow plows can reek havoc on our mail boxes and posts. My current mail box is twisted in the ground and leaning over about 10-15 degrees. So I came up with an idea to make a much sturdier stand. Using 3/16" thick 1" angle iron I...

    flower planter

    I came across several used horse shoes while cleaning off the work bench, and putting stuff in my "new" tool box setup. Was trying to come up with something to do with them. So I decided to make a flower planter for my mother. (she loves it by the way!) I forgot to take pics as it progressed...

    Tool box cart

    I decided to bring home the top box from my work to use at home, since my tool collection is getting to big for my small craftsman box here. Needing some storage space I wanted to build a "cart" for this thing to sit on. Got started on it today; I'm using some 1" square tube that has an 1/8"...

    Third brake light output?

    I have a cap on the back of my truck now (2003 FX4) and I'm wondering is there somewhere I can tap into the third brake light wiring? I've been searching the wonderful world of the interwebs with no luck. I have an idea for a wiring project, but I would like to be able to make the brake...

    My Lego model collection so far

    We had discussed a Lego V8 engine in another thread and I mentioned it would make a great addition to my collection. Was told to post up some pics of my models. So here it goes. My largest model so far, it's over 24" long has a working boom and outriggers. This next one has four wheel...

    TRS banner through Ohio!

    OK after looking over the map real close, I think maybe I might have a plan. (Unless someone else has a better one!) Depending on where it comes into the state (PA or WV) I'm thinking all of the members from the major regions could meet and pass to next region. I've got Jspafford...

    Pinion bearing question

    My pinion seal on the rear axle is leaking. (leaves a slight puddle after awhile) Went to change out the other day, and found that the yoke moves quite a bit. So I'm thinking the bearing is bad, the question is: Does the bearing and race all come out the nose of the diff. or does it have to come...
