thanks,............ i love using solidworks it lots of fun............. at work we have one laser now but another will be here in 2 weeks, so that will be 2 lasers, 5 turrets, and 5 press-brakes........ i program the laser and the 5 turrets also........... we have a bender but i have had the time to use it yet, when my jeep was at my buddy's shop for almost a year i used his plasma table and used his bender to bend my cage and all his other tools.....

@jeepster1407 pretty much i do the same thing you do, so it sound like........ but were not a job shop by far....... the company just landed a new customer and it looks like a 3 million a year if that , and i have to deal with them..........

Where did you get the steering wheel adapter at? I like the idea of being able to lock the steering like that. Looks good.

.............GOOD NEWS.............

THE HOMEWRECKER IS ALIVE


I had an extra fuel pump just laying around in the garage from my old 85 ranger and I've used that same pump on my buddy's jeep......... so i connected it all up and the pump worked and got fuel to the rail but she didn't want to fire, so i remembered that that pump was still under warranty, and it still didn't want to fire. at that point i just wanted to shoot myself lol, when a friend moved up north to Sacramento he gave me a few extra parts so that he didn't have to throw them away, and one part he gave me was a ECU, cause extra jeep parts a plus in my book lol............. i disconnected my ECU and put the one he gave me up and the ***** fired up............ NOW all i need to do if find to do is run brake lines, trans lines, and find a good used old trans to see if she'll move lol

well last week i got my drive shafts from the Ed Moore Drive Line in San Bernardino...... i wanted to go with a 2" .188" DOM for my drive shafts but after talking to them i just went with .120" instead i took them 2 shafts form a Cherokee and they shortened the one rear and lengthened the front.......... grand total was $257 cheap as HELL....... and of course its all 1310 spicer u-joints


also i got a new weld, didn't know what i wanted to get at first but then i got an e-mail from Eastwood and they where having a sale on there welder and the reviews were really good so i did it, and i got the cart from good old harbor freight i like that i can put my helmet and all my consumables in one spot




oh and i also got my rebuilt trans from the shop so shes getting there very quickly

I like that welding cart. I built mine out of an old bed frame, my first welding project. Mine isn't quite as nice as yours. Drive shafts are pretty sweet too. I will need some of them soon.
