Well I been slowly building a ballast box/basket for my 1025R with discarded rebar I bring home from the jobsite. I will be slapping together a brush fork and rippers later but first I need some ballast. Started Sunday cutting some up for the frame
Really slow with the saw I got ( I plan on getting a band saw or something more committed to cutting steel)
Went through some abrasive blades, but got the frame cut, and started grinding and welding yesterday. Rebar has raised ribs on it, so for the points of connection, I ground those down and filled in the gaps with the welder. Got part of it welded and went in for dinner.
I still need to finish the frame and then get it mounted, then weld on smaller sticks to the bottom and sides.
I AM NOT A VERY GOOD WELDER!
I havenít touched a welder in 10 years so go ahead and laugh. Itís ugly but itíll hold
Iíll make some headway this weekend. This is all being done in my spare time, but I have a lot to tackle with this little guy and I want to have ballast before I grenade my front end.
