Fab Quarter Project ideas

Recommended Posts

I have a fab quarter coming up for welding class and was wondering what everyone here would make? Any great ideas or any premade plans? Thanks for all of your ideas. Benjamin

In Make magazine a few months ago, they published an article and plans to make a set of steel welding jigs, to use to make other projects such as were suggested, later, as skill and time allow. I bet they've got welding jigs at school. If it were me, since I'm not good enough to attempt a loader, and I don't have personal jigs, I'd use the school's jigs to make a good set of my own, so I could use them to weld when I was out of school. Unless, of course, you have access to same in a job or at home, already? Then a loader would be nice.:D Peter

I already have one "brinly" hitch that I helped make for myself. Not fancy but it is very strong and useful. Going to use it to mount a grader blade to the rear of my B-11o so I can blade and blow snow with my dual lift. I am seriously considering a loader. I'll need to draw up some plans and that might be fun so I better get started, unless someone already has them drawn up? What do you mean by jigs, I am sure we have them but have no idea what they look like. I can't wait however to use all the metal cutting, bending, grinding, and so on tools that fill our fab bay. Should be quite fun. Thanks and keep the ideas coming, Benjamin

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
