Dc I just put a picture i n the gallery of my friend Jimmys home built loader. Jimmy is in a wheel chair from a car accident but he builds alot of different things.

Hes built a larger loader but it didnt suit him,so he sold it. Im gonna help him this summer rebuild the steering joints in the loader and posible make hydailc link in the drag link to make it have a crab steering feature. Jimm has built no telling how many une buggies and a few other things. 30 foot tall windmill,2 loaders, a tractor mounted loader, a 49 chevy halfton truck that had 4 wheel drive and an articulated fram like a big tractor, a band saw mill and has now started on a portable circle saw mill. I dont carge him for lathe work e always have something each other can use. I have a 3 inch diameter 8 threads per inch all thread 3 feet long I made him on my lathe last week.
As for the "I cant method" thats all I heard in highschool here. Thats the method most tried to teach or if somethings were too difficult to give up on something. Most not all were like that, I always had to show my tail and either do it or come awfully close. I can name 4 teachers that were a strong beleiver then the dirty C word. It amazed them hen we finally got them to go to the Vo tech center and see what we made all the years past bushhogs we built or rebuilt and bleachers the gym's weight benches, that we all built. Now lawsuits have stopped alot of the schools projects.

hey that looks nice taylor - heck i'd like to try it :)

bob & i used to hunt our favorite hillside along sierra pelona ridge in california. we got up there early friday nite but there was always a pickup/camper parked near a big tree up top. boy that fella had a nice spot to hint. well one year we headed down at midday for some reason, and found out our buddy was in a wheelchair. not only that, he'd got his buck but the silly thing had hopped off the farside of the ridge before collapsing & sliding further yet. so we gave him a hand getting it in the tree. he had rigging to load it from there, and could tie any knot. i admire that kinda spirit :)

Impressive, Taylor.
That sure should make all those,
"I can't do it" folks think twice!!
It is people like your friend Jimmy,
that make those others look lazy.
