      Excellent! Can you mount some wings and an upgraded jet engine to make you feel right at home in it?

          Can't say I haven't daydreamed about it, but they have left us alone.
          I'm quite amazed at my level of restraint about what I post, only about 50% of my posts have been deleted since being in this particular mood.

            That's sort of like using the smoke detector as a kitchen timer. It works, but the results are less than perfect.

            At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and left over parts.

                Jet turbines would be a foolish upgrade, they could be disabled by firing debris into them. The diesel in the dozer, simple, proven and reliable.

                  Not if you mounted them facing TOWARDS the opposition and used them like wind cannon!

                    if you get that dozer going fast enough for the wings to have any effect, who is going to stand in front of it to fire debis into it?

                    • anyway...

                      fixed up a combimike I bought recently where the mm part wouldn't stay adjusted, it would drift over use. Tore it apart and it looks like a previous owner had smooshed the top off the key that rides in the channel on the side of the spindle. As that drives the collar that holds the gear that drives the mm tumblers (!!), the whole mm thing didn't work properly. I couldn't safely hold the screw that had the key in it (it was about 1.5mm in diameter) so I gave it a stern talking to and screwed it back in. Seems to work ok and the calibration is holding at both ends of the range. Waiting for the loctite on the barrel to set before adjusting the inch part.

                      that's an 8-32 screw in the pic! The keyed screw is the one at the top left.

I've had the blower kicking around for a number of years, and initial plans when I got it were to build an atv mounted blower with separate engine. But I got my plow jeep shortly after and had no real need. Picked up the 2 Kubotas this summer (fantastic machines BTW), and figured I'd make use of the blower as it's almost the perfect size. It's 45" vs the 44" width of the Kubota. It's a little light duty compared to a kubota made one for this machine, but It will only see light duty here, and should be fine...Hopefully....



                        Obligatory closeup of the only good weld....



                        I added a vertical/angled support from the mounting brackets back to the blower after taking these pics, but it was dark by then. I still have to fabricate a chute, extend the pto shaft, and machine a yoke to fit the blower end..... Thinking I'll need to build a cab, or at the very least windshield at some point too. Racing the snow, but I don't really "need" it as I still have the jeep. This is just a bonus snow weapon, and an excuse to build something. I've been doing a pile of big fussy machining jobs at work lately so it's nice to balance it out with some not fussy fab work at home.

                        This is also the first real project I've used my new to me Mig welder (Lincoln 180c) on, and I really like it. Beats having to stick weld everything thicker than 14ga, even though I really enjoy some stick welding hood time. The next project is going to be a big cart for all my welders, plasma and accessories.
                        Thats a fair nice bead of weld you’ve run there. Likely that stick time gave you a steady hand

                        • Today I finished machining some parts for the local Engineering students group I’ve been helping out. They paid me $200.00 and I donated half to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger and the other half to the Salvation Army in memory of my grandfather who they helped so much in France during WW1.
