Can I bring this thread back from the dead? 4 years ago, almost to the day... I got the frame and body separated, the frame put back on the rotisserie and rolled into the heated side of the shop and then.... Nothing. Didn't touch it again until earlier this year...
I wasn't sitting around doing nothing though. This is what I've been up too these last four years:
1). I bought a '56 Chevy 2 door handyman wagon. A lot of time and coin was spent getting it running and driving.
2). I built a bed for the better half.
3). Replaced some doors in the house.
4). Built a BUNCH of tools and stuff for the shop.
5). Rebuilt a glider bench and a glider swing.
6). I also built, from scratch, a couple of hot rod wagons and have another one in the works...
I have been busy and took a needed break from the BadAst project.
If you would like I will bring you up to date on progress this year...
Mark

Okay, thanks guys! There is a LOT to show. I will hit a few of the highlights. If you want to see anything in detail I can start separate build threads for them.
This is the bed I rebuilt. It was an antique full size frame that I made bigger to fit a queen size mattress.




This is a roll-a-round cutoff rack I designed and built. This thing has been a god send in keeping scrap organized.

It's getting a lot of use. This pic was taken right after I built it. It is pretty well full right now. I needed a short piece of 3/4-10 all thread tonight and new right where to go to get it.


This is a roller frame I built for the hydraulic press. It's nice to shove this thing off into a corner and just roll it out when needed. I also added an old tool box to hold press dies and stuff...

The lower shelf is a great spot to store the swag bender when it's not being used. Which isn't often. :)


This is a flat top bender I built to use with the Swag bender.


This is the engine for the Astro Project.


That's a start...
Mark
