      Old question when the parts start getting big-Are we putting the part on the mill or the mill on the part?
      I just need one more tool,just one!

        Ahh! Now I get it!
        Yes, It was a big part. We actually used my engine hoist to get it up on the table and set up. Once it was clamped, we released the hoist, but kept it in place just in case.

          That's one of the nicest looking trucks I've seen; very well proportioned! How amazingly fortuitous that the spring pads on the axle were wide enough to allow new mounting holes.

            Yes,he spent much time agonizing over those proportions to get it right. That's why we were modifying the axle just to move the tires in 1.5 inches on each side!

              Nice work Sid. What a beautiful truck. Very well proportioned, and it just looks "right". Talented family you've got there.

                I saw the truck in person, this morning at the antique truck show, at Long Branch Park, in Liverpool, NY. The pictures made me believe the truck is black, but it is actually a metallic gun metal gray. A very nice looking vehicle, also met Sid's brother Pete, who said the engine upgrade to a Cummins 8.3L, is happening very soon.
