This is great! So basically, we love machines and working on them... lots of them. Thanks for sharing. I've been out for a bit and enjoyed catching up. Never in a million years would I have guessed a shear would've shown up!

'78 Wagoneer, 401, TH400/QT (next in line for an LS swap, sitting patiently)

Yes we do! I almost always have a machine project in my shop weather it be a restoration or a built from scratch. Most of the machines in my shop we’re bought used or saved from scrap. Last year I “redid” a 3 HP, 16” Delta Radial Saw that I purchased from the scrap yard for $95. I also this year made this dump contraption for my tractor it has a swivel caster that weighs over 300 lbs. check it out: https://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums/sh ... hp?t=50209
I used to name my FSJ’s after their previous owners, I realized I had too many when I had five named Rick.

That caster wheel swivel device thingy is a beast! Did you ever get it hooked up? How close to Flint? That's where I was birthed.

No I haven't used it yet. At this point it is still an untested experiment.

I'm near Detroit.

I had a ‘66 Fairlane ST from the original owner. 3 on the tree with O/D. I started fixing it into a Tbolt copy then sold it and my 40’ GMC coach. Sold the house after Y2K and the neighborhood got rough (cop was shot less than a block away and chasing stolen cars made the area a demolition derby.
Goodbye for now.
