Rock Picker

Since my name was mentioned in at least 2 different threads this morning, I’m in my “thinking mode”. How about a dual purpose "Johnny Bucket" for you New England “Rock Pickers”? John Scheele could take one of his buckets, build a cross braced angle iron frame (to retain structural integrity), and offer interchangeable bottoms. A solid bottom to be used just like the existing bucket, and a grate for sifting rocks. Something like this, only with a grate for strength..... http://www.northerntool.com/images/product/images/1038421_lg.jpg

Great idea, Herb. I'd also love to have scarifier teeth on mine, if they could be easily removed. I'm waiting on John to get his powder-coating operation going, so I can get the first "Johnny Box", a combination weight box and counterweight... I want to see how well the Johnny Bucket will work with hydraulic lift and a 150 lb (or so) counterweight on the rear lift.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
