Wednesday Project

(viewed 469 times)
I was out at Anton's place again, today. When he bought the place, a lot of
trash accumulated by the previous owners came with it. We got rid of a good
deal of it: a rusted V8 Ford engine, a really rusted barrel-stove water
heater, old carpet, vinyl siding scraps, and a whole lot more. Lifting that
engine into the trailer by hand was no small task, I must say.

Tuesday Evening Project

(viewed 431 times)
I helped my friend Anton assemble a 10 cu. ft. trailer for his lawn
tractor... Fun, huh?! It was a bit of a pain, since the manufacturer
decided to replace all the nuts included in the kit with a different type
than what was in the original design for the tractor. It was not a problem
everywhere, and probably an improvement in many places, but there were a
couple places where the design called for a non-locking nut, just a normal
hex nut, to hold a lever in place at the middle of a bolt which acted as a
hinge pin. We had to force a locking nut on backwards and add washers to
make it work properly. The axle was also a bit too long, and we needed to
add washers there, too. The finished product looks like it will perform
well hauling cut logs from the fallen and dead trees on his property.

Disc Golf!

(viewed 517 times)
Yesterday, I spent the evening throwing discs at the Giants Ridge Disc Golf
Course. Knowing Anton, the designer and manager of the course, has its
perks. Usually you have to walk up the 500ft vertical, but we get to use the
Polaris Ranger that he has for course maintenance. I am such a spoiled disc
golfer, haha!Anton, Nate, and I got a late start so we only got to play part of the
course. The Ranger comes in really handy in a time crunch like that.

Looking forward...
