My welds look worse than a lava flow from a volcano. 

A few day’s of welding, you would be a pro. You need to get burned a few time’s to make a good welder. ;)

Rickey, I hope you are grounding each roll as you weld it. Arc pitting caused by welding current through the bearings can reduce their lifespan significantly.

Harbor Freight does. But I think you would be better off with a 'Farm Duty' motor, than 'Compressor Duty'

Russ, I’m tight but not that tight. :D A good motor around $400.00

Coop, do you have a cheap single phase 2 hp electric motor 1725 rpm’s?

I’m not sure what that is. I do have a 428 in my Shelby. Will that help?

Or as Wimpy would say, “a burger now and I will pay you next Wednesday”, or something of that nature. I will pm you with my wife’s cc number. :D

I’d like to come up and be part of that operation. That’s gonna be cool when finished.

I was going to use a silage blower for a sawdust blower for my mill and edger, but I didn’t want to tie one of my tractors up to the blower. I was also afraid, that I would blow sawdust in the next county where Rick live’s. It would have made a bad blower and a cheap one too.

Now that would be neat. Coop, Spanky, Dave and me all in one place together.  We did do 3 out of the 4 once in Iowa for a woodworking show.  But doing that here in Tennessee would be the cat's pajamas.   Young'un's are gonna have fun with that expression.

It would be like the House and the Senate. Me and you booze, Dave and Rickey, coffee. But that’s ok as we’d all agree .... at least on something.

Dave would want sugar in his coffee and I like my coffee black. :)

Coop do you have any Rural King stores in Houston? My wife and I went to one on the mtn in Crossville, Tn today.
