Perhaps I have lost my mind but hopefully my back will appreciate it. When I pull the tractors are there and I need to have the weights and air to refill the tires after pulling. This started with I will just go buy a cargo rack and put it on the front three point. Found out they don’t make them in a size I need. Then measure out my length and width. My dump trailer is 83” wide and 14’ long. To fit the everything in with an 1” on each side I had to be creative. Did the hard part today and will do the rack this week.

I wish I was. The tractors spend the week at the fair and are driven there and back. I don’t like to bring them back with low tires. If that is the question.

Reading Herm's post I thought the same. :unsure:
If I'd had been drinking, I may have understood what he posted.

In his first sentence, the comma was missing between the words "mind" and "but". The comma was also missing between the words "pull" and "the". I fixed that in the quote. (y)

What he's saying here is, he needs his generator and air compressor to re-fill the tires, after "Pulling"(as in tractor pull). They are heavy when lifting them on his own.

This started with, I will just go buy a cargo rack and put it on the front three point.
The comma was missing between "with" and "I". I fixed it. (y)

Found out they don’t make them in a size I need.
He's speaking of a rack to place the genny and air compressor.

Then measure out my length and width. My dump trailer is 83” wide and 14’ long. To fit the everything in with an 1” on each side, I had to be creative.
Here, the word "the" should have been excluded, so I struck a line through it. I also added a comma between the words "side" and "I". (y)

Did the hard part today and will do the rack this week.
He built the receiver hitch for a device(rack) to place the genny and air compressor on.

I think I have this correct. :unsure:

Even funnier is it improved and was well explained. Did I say I took a lot of ag and shop classes in school but didn't care much for English. Knowing this, I typically reread my posts and correct them which I did not. Even it I do it is only 50/50 they will be correct.

Ugg. We are worrying about 2 different things.

I am thinking about how thick a cross piece I need so it doesn't bend down at the outsides and then if it is going to raise high enough not to dig in coming down the trailer ramps. :geek:

Fin. Well except for paint, I ran out of time. Damn job.

Ends up I can swap the air compressor with the welder as well. Hopefully I have some pulling photos tomorrow.

The welding table looks good, big.
—————

In the shop this afternoon, I fabricated two antenna mounting brackets. I used 1-1/2” x 1-1/2” angle iron.

Because my welding table is still in storage, I used a makeshift table.

Welded and primed. I’m using galvanized bolts to mount it to the rear of the shop.

After an hour of drying, I installed the brackets and mounted the FM antenna.

Nice job on the welding table. It seems pretty heavy-duty and painting it black makes it look mean (y)

Nice tight wood joints (y) Is that poplar? I can't figure out what it's going to be - a wall hanging thing?
