    I threw this together this morning just for fun. Made it from the tooth of a backhoe bucket and some misc scrap pieces. quick fun and easy





    You can tell from the pics, did everything by eyeball, no measuring or squaring or anything. Just slapped together. No real welds to show pics of, bunch of little tacks.

    nice.. you should smooth off the welds on the wheels and with a 41/2 inch cutoff disk, put some tread on the tires..

      That's Excellent!!...I agree with smoothing the tacks down on the wheels, but plain steel would be fine by me...no treads needed!

        thanks

        Thanks guys,

        After looking at the pics it is like a "duh" moment. Definitely should grind those down, takes no time and will look better.

        I am going to try to get three more knocked out, but take a little more time on them. This one could be considered the first sketch.

        I might put the little nose wing or spoiler or whatever it is called on the one of the new ones too. My thought was to make it look like a formula car, with not very many pieces and being easy and quick to assemble. Sometimes it is nice to just make something and finish it as opposed to the over complicated long projects.

          That looks like a great boot scraper. Ornamental and useful.
