This is a 50,000 btu thermostat controlled that has a 120# hopper "3 bags". It was $1600. The double wall stainless exhaust fittings where pricey to get through the wall $400. But is nice, you can vent through any wall, and sucks in out side air, preheats it with the exhaust. This is nice if you have flammable fumes floating around the garage, its not force feeding them flumes. Ash clean up is a breeze, every 10 bags of pellets "400 lbs" you suck up the ash with a little shop vac "about a 1 1/2 gals of ash"

Yep, jealous. My dad has one at his house and other than my annual trip to stack a few pallets of pellets that thing is awsome. I really wanted one so I could safely leave heat on in my shop while I'm gone, just to keep it around 50.

Cool build!! Will be watching! One thing I would suggest, Don't herculine the tub. It looks like crap in My opinion. Spray it with Raptor liner. Far superior over Herc! Keep up the great work.

Thanks for watching. I have a couple of cans of the Herc that I bought once for my pickup that I never used. I will look into options when we get that far..............long time yet!

I started a little bit on tearing down the front axle. I did manage to get one of the locking hubs off. Only had one cap screw that rounded out on that hub. Then I was off to town to get an axle nut socket, and then got the spindle and brakes off. I had then found I need a Ball Joint Spanner Wrench.

I'm using info off of Mr. N's 44 page for the tear down.
http://77cj.littlekeylime.com/Mr.N44.htm#The Tear Down

I had to order from Napa # 278-2030 and will be here tomorrow


You can see the inner ball joint preload nut here


So far about 3 hours to get one side this far






Also, today I did a little horse trading. Traded my Lincoln 185 tig for a Thermal dynamics 180 Tig/Arc and a Hypertherm 30 Plasma cutter and bought a Lincoln 180 HD Mig. They will be coming next week. I should be set-up for the cutting and welding for the project pretty good now.

I know what you said about a 40amp plasma, but this deal came up quick. It will get me going now and I can upgrade later if I need to. Its 3 years old but never been arced. Same with the tig. I'm losing the AC for doing aluminium, but the trade off for getting a dual voltage welder and a new plasma was worth it to me. I only use the tig for welding my Stainless steel prosthetic wrenches. I am also getting another S sized tank with the deal so I can get one switched over to 75/25 for the new mig. These where holdovers that our route salesman had at his home. Cost me a $100 bucks to boot with my 10 year old Lincoln trade in.

My little basement furnace-room machine shop has been a "catch all" this winter. So in the the morning I'm holding my breath and "going in" to clean it up. If I don't come out by nightfall, better send someone in after me.

It was a long afternoon, but I was able to get both knuckles off. Of course I manage to bugger up some threads in one of the upper C's. Now I need to figure out what size threads are in there, and will have to get a tap! I'm sure that will be cheap..........looks like it's bigger than 1".

I figured out the thread size of the upper C's, its 1 1/8-12. I might try slotting a bolt and thread it up from the bottom to try and clean up them top threads. If that doesn't work, I guess I will have to try and find a used tap on fleebay.

The first of the 3 new toys showed up today.




I got my old tig ready for the trade in tomorrow.


I'm keeping my old cart that was homemade. I'm going to convert it to hold 2 tanks, the new mig, and the new plasma and new tig thats coming tomorrow.
