I know it has been a while since the last posting. But I have finally wrapped my head around how to find more time to write more. That said I haven’t stopped working on wagons and/or filling the shop with tools to make more wagons.
Latest purchase is this sweet 85 pound ACME anvil. I had been using a one foot long rail road section that I picked up, but this 85 pounder is awesome. I can’t wait to use it.
I was also able to finish the post hole mount for my bender and other large items(actually I did not finish this, a good friend did while I was out of the shop). I did this to be able to move these items out of the way when I’m finished using them.
You can see the receiver hitch is just under the 1/4 inch steel plate. This will act as a solid surface for the stand to rest on. The hitch has re-bar welded to it and will no turn in the concrete form.
This is the post/stand I made. It is 5 inch square and stands around 3 1/2 feet tall. There is a receiver hitch in the top of it so I can just drop in any tool I make with a 2 inch box tube extension. See pic’s below to see what I mean.
