    A thread to tell us about any interesting workshop projects you're working on at the moment, so we can pick holes and tell you how you should have done it.

    Extra points will be awarded for welding that has been performed upside down and underwater.

    im starting a heart transplant on a forklift tomorrow if all is quiet, after i spray down the wrapper thats in there tonight drying off from its end of season bath, with some oil for the winter.
    i have a newer forklift that has no engine in it, so im going to swap it over from a donor.
    this is the recipient of said heart.

    I have beermat aided design? Is that as effective, or does it depend on the consumption of said beer before the pencil comes out?

    i take it the pics are in your 'puter
    when replying to a thread click the paperclip or mannage attachments buttons
    if they are too big open them in paint and resize them(something like 35% of original)

    the fact that the new panels will be smooth should help,
    perhaps you could slightly increase the angle and raise up the hopper by 8-12",
    it would also help.
    you could go mad and put a hyd vibrating device on the side of it, but it would shorten the lifespan.
    anything inside the hopper would only hinder the stone imo,
    but maybe im wrong.

    Would you know where i would get one of those vibrating things ??
