This is great! So basically, we love machines and working on them... lots of them. Thanks for sharing. I've been out for a bit and enjoyed catching up. Never in a million years would I have guessed a shear would've shown up!

'78 Wagoneer, 401, TH400/QT (next in line for an LS swap, sitting patiently)
'79 CJ7, 304, T18 (Novak adapter)/D20, 35", 4.56:1, SOA, Shackle Reversal (done)

Yes we do! I almost always have a machine project in my shop weather it be a restoration or a built from scratch. Most of the machines in my shop we’re bought used or saved from scrap. Last year I “redid” a 3 HP, 16” Delta Radial Saw that I purchased from the scrap yard for $95. I also this year made this dump contraption for my tractor it has a swivel caster that weighs over 300 lbs. check it out: https://www.shopfloortalk.com/forums/sh ... hp?t=50209
I used to name my FSJ’s after their previous owners, I realized I had too many when I had five named Rick.

That caster wheel swivel device thingy is a beast! Did you ever get it hooked up? How close to Flint? That's where I was birthed.
