Ol' rusty build

Recommended Posts

 

I have another foot of track that I plan to mill into a flat surface.

Given that much track has an induction-hardened surface, you might want to anneal it before milling.

I found a wonderful dozer bucket pin for my anvil post in my local scrap yard. I'm going to get it cleaned up then weld it on tonight. 

It's 3ft. long with a 6in. Diameter.

A buddy of mine works on heavy machinery, and was kind enough to bring me this section of axle that sheared off. It weighs about 40lb, so I was thinking it could go on the business end of my hammer ram. Then I can weld a mounting plate onto the end for my upper die.0922172118.thumb.jpg.d52a01eaa78308ffb1fa3cee753877a1.jpg

What do y'all think?

I'm excited to say I'm almost done with my little project. I tried to get a picture today, but it strangley blends in with its surroundings. 

Just one speed bump, I'm going to use a friction clutch powered by a 1hp electric motor. I just need to figure out a spindle to press up to the tire. Does anyone have a suggestion?
