Matt,
I see you're using the Fenner drive belts, how smooth do they run. I have a Delta table saw I bought years ago. It ran rough when I got it so I machined all the pulleys on mandrels and now it's very smooth but I'm still using the original belt.

Nice house!

How big a pole barn did you build Kenny?
I started out with the intent to build a 30x40 Stick and by the time I was done the pad I'd already sold myself on 30x44.

It it 24x36 total, but he front finished part is 24x24-the rear 12' is open for implement and other storage.

The nice house is my neighbor's, mine is the non-landscaped dump.

I really like the Fenner belts. The first one I bought was for my Sears contractor's table saw. It would dance and shimmy like a cheap stripper when I shut it off. That went away as soon as I put the Fenner belt on. That was enough to sell me on them that I use them on all my belt driven equipment except my L-130 lawn tractor. I asked Fenner if I could use them on the lawn tractor and they didn't recommend it.

A friend of mine built a repetitive test rig for the pressure sensors he invents, and he was having vibration roblems skewing his test results. I clued him on the Fenner belts, which he installed on his test rig and he's happy.

those are some cool projects. I just finished restoring a horse trailer and making my harrow imatch compatible. Just need to get that fuel pump to get my tractor running.

Nice work.

I wonder why they don't paint metal trailers rust color.

My trailer guy says black is the best to hide rust, but heck when my car hauler really needs paint I am going to paint it rust color.
