    Oxweld is serious industrial only. Another whole level above companies like Victor. The only problem is nobody carries parts for them. And on track burners (could that be a circle burner?) you have to buy a ton of tips.

    Some googling around finds reference to a Winona Machine "In car portable crank grinder" apparently used to somehow grind crank journals in place, rotating the engine by turning the rear wheels with that roller thing you have. There are a few posts about them on message boards and such, as well as a reference to them here, see page 7:

    Another reference here, scroll down a few paragraphs:

    And some associated discussion here:

    Photo of saw, I am sure the sheet metal is not original.

    Is the horizon that flat in all directions? Even my front lawn has a bigger slope.

    there's a slope on the right if you look carefully. I grew up somewhere way flatter than that though, I could see where I was going before I left. I could even see the church of where I went to 6th form college (last 2 years of high school) from just outside my town and that was over 20 miles away.

    neat haul TT, looks like you'll be having alot of fun with that. I'm particularly impressed by the band saw, that's a beaut. Interesting speed reduction too, very ingenious.

    Matt’s right, my place has quite a bit of grade for around here. Remember this is western Kansas. There are a lot flatter places around here.
