    I'll let my Picasa web albums speak for my work. The link is in my signature. The majority of my shop is in the basement, with the welder and horizontal bandsaw in the garage. My power tools consist of two metal cutting bandsaws (vertical & horizontal), welder, drill press, table saw, chop saw (wood), one 4.5" angle grinder, Bosch rotary hammer, Milwaukee hammer drill and Sawzall, a couple of hand held circular saws, a hand held jig saw, a dremel tool. Hand tools include measuring tapes, rules, and squares; along with hammers, clamps, and other assorted stuff.

    Default Re: Everything Attachments Nominee "Why you should vote for me" thread

    Happy to be one of the canidates I have always been in all phases of DIY implement build, re-build, re-purpose arena. I was Born into a farming family, and later working in the timber industry. Implement build, rebuild or re-purpose has just been part of doing business and a way of life for me.

    I left the timber industry and did work as a general mechanic and implement/tractor assembly specialist at a small local dealer for 3 years, 97' to 2001.
    Repaired and assembled all sorts of new, used implements brands and assembled new kubota and ford tractors.

    A growing family then and just starting our tree farm in 2000, a job offering from a logging company with substantially increased earnings could have not been better timed for me. So I went back to the timber industry.

    I use smaller CUT implements in nearly all phases with the tree farm from ground prep, planting and maintenance. Not to mention plowing snow from the drive in the winter, and some occasional custom tractor work.

    I don't own a large and extravagant tooled-up shop. My "shop" is a 30' by 30' heated two car garage complete with cement floor. When bigger projects need done, the rigs get the boot till the project is done. I am armed with a little better than average knowledge on implement assembly with average tools. A 120v mig welder, clamps, bench grinder, angle grinder, torch, full range of metric and s.a.e wrenches, socket sets from 1/4 dr. to 3/4 dr. assorted pneumatic and impact tools and such. No metal breaks, press rollers, cnc things or lathes.

    Most things I have built, re-built and re-purposed was before I discovered TBN and have no pictures of. Like my tree tie ring that mounts to the loader of the 790 that lifts and holds limbs on trees so they can be tied up before the tree can be dug with a skid steer mount tree spade. I do have some pictures of some things though......

    First pic is of ol' no. 15. An OLD, cantankerous No. 15 deere sub-soiler I brought back to usefulness by fixing a busted trip/lift mechanisim. I do pull it with the 790, That's why I call it cantankerous.

    Next in line is my waste oil burning stove I built from scratch with assorted junk. Its the 'ozzirt' design that burns waste oil so clean there is No smoke at all, none. It heats my garage very nicely.

    Third is my FEL forks built from junk and two axle shafts for forks. This set was built to load and move dug b&b trees with the higher back design.

    Fourth is a 5 foot deere crow foot packer That started out as 36 inch. Its the product of combining the best parts left from shot 3 and 4 foot packers. Axle in it is from a soil pulverizer

    The spike tooth harrow shown was headed to the scrap yard resembling a pile of bent-up T-posts, with spikes. I rescued it, re-assembled it and welded it up solid.

    The tiller and packer 'tilla-packer' pic was an idea that I never got time to refine more with a better connection to the tiller. Its also a deere packer.

    O.k, when up loading the pics got mixed up. Hopefully everyone can tell a waste oil stove from a sub-soiler

    I'm exited about the whole deal. I really like ETA's idea of DIY implement kits and would love to do build one of there prototype implements.

    I think I could represent the product well. Documentation, skill level and the ability to think outside the box is a big plus for me (at least I think it is) It's also been said I'm a perfectionist but I don't believe that

    These are just a few examples of what I've done. There are many more examples of my work on the bottom of my signature and many more threads on this site. The two bottom projects are none tractor related BUT I think most members have or will enjoy seeing them.

    My wife and I run our little automotive repair shop here but I like to think up ideas and lay them down on metal from time to time. As they say " A change is as good as a rest and if its worth doing then its worth doing well"

    I too will let my work and documentation speak for itself. I don't post EVERYTHING I do, I am always making stuff, Those are just the bigger and/or tractor related stuff.

    I have a large polebarn, that is well heated so I could get started ASAP. Also will have pleanty of time to do it cause my place of employment is closing down Jan 1st.

    I an by no means a professional. I have a ~30 year old Linde 225a Mig welder and a 60+ year old Craftsman 200a Stick. I am NOT a welder or fabricator by trade. And I dont make money out of my shop or with this equipment. I consider my self just an average person in the area where I live. I have been a memeber here for quite awhile, and I do like doing these kind of projects and as you can see, I'm not going anywhere and not afraid to post tons of pics.

    I guess I cannot really add any more than that. There are quite a few people that were nominated that I am sure would do an excellent job as well, Why you should vote for me over them........

    Oh BOY looks like I made it into "LUCKY 13 SPOT" above :x Just my luck

    Well first of all I'm not welding for a living, I'm setting in front of a desk (for now.) I've in the past welded fabricated and designed equipment for industrial uses. Built from scratch a LOT of stuff, way too much to list for my old jobs which got me into the desk job I have now.

    I have built much of my own equipment for use behind my JM284 Import 4x4 C.U.T.. I bought it with a few items directly from/thru China along with 3 other tractors. I sold off the 3 and kept one for myself did the assembly on 2 of them totally.

    I WISH boy do I that I had half the equipment above, I have an OLD Miller Thunderbolt AC/DC 220V stick welder and a import 110Mig. The Mig has Gas & that does pretty good for up to 3/16" metal. I've got a good bit of hand tools and air tools for most of my needs. I've also Painted Cars/Trucks & Equipment professionally, prior to joining the USAF as a Aircraft Hydraulics Specialist.

    As for shop 38x50 Pole Barn with good floor and power, (no heat YET.) (a Corner can be seen in the Dump Trailer pics and a build up of the barn can be seen at the links below.)


    Modified and added value to my tractor and most of the work on my barn was by ME and my Family.
    While I work hard for myself and others $ never has come easy. I usually buy used old or build my OWN regardless of what it is.


    Some things I'm proud of.
    My Pole Barn, structurally I hired a good bit of framing & Concrete work but all the dirt work all the Prep and such was done by myself & family. Posting a link as there are videos and photos there.
    BARN photos Photos by WPSPIKER | Photobucket

    Built & painted my own dump wagon for farm use (built in my old work/shop.)


    With my tractor at my farm, the yellow lift barn/3PT lift on back is made from scrap by me as well.


    set of forks made from scrap.


    On my place I also do some Sugaring for myself, Family & Friends so I built a larger SS Pan to boil sap into Syrup doing all the fab/welding work myself. Really a lot of work for the amount I make 4 or 5 gallons every few years tapped from trees on my farm. all done Hard/Old Fashioned way.


    For more on this links are here syrup stuff Photos by WPSPIKER | Photobucket

    Some of the OTHER types of Projects can be seen here mostly home items & such.
    Projects Photos by WPSPIKER | Photobucket

    Anyhow the last items i have been looking at building for myself has been a Grapple to mount onto my FEL on my tractor. I do like the thoughts and Ideas passed along here and I post a good bit mostly replying to others posts looking for help. I do most all my own Car/Truck maintenance and in above "Projects" link you can see my latest project, an engine rebuild for the woman's car. Pulled the engine from a wreck and I'm now waiting for time to get it installed...

    DStig1 was also nominated I did not see his name on the list.

    I am not a professional welder but I did not start yesterday. I feel I fit the demographic perfectly of the average person that would purchase a kit from Everything Attachments. I have a heated garage so I could start ASAP. I have a Snap MM140SL mig welder and DC TIG conversion for it, Lincoln arc welder, torches, grinders, hand tools etc. I would be honored to get to build the first kit from Everything attachments. It would be about the best Christmas present ever I am not very good at talking about myself so here are pictures of thing I have made since I have been a member here.

    Yea??? I know I nominated him on like the first page of that thread???

    Maybe he requested not to be nominated?? Or maybe Aaron contacted everyone that had a third party nomination just to get a yea or nay??? Or it could just be an oversight??

    Either way, if dstig1 has any interest, I think he should be included in the voting. But I understand if he isnt interested as well.

    Also....When is the voting?? or where is the voting

    Well here is my pitch. I'm not an expert, that's why you should vote for me. I've never built any super complicated. I did build an implement this past summer. It was a set of harrows and a chain link drag behind it. You can find it in my profile. It turned out like a POS. That's my point. I'm the potential customer ETA would like to have. I don't live within the ETA's 1000 mile free shipping zone, so shipping is an issue. My skills are average in this area. I can read and follow instructions just like anyone else. As a power electrician that's what we do, we follow detailed instruction for complexe equipment for testing, maintance and assembly.

    By the way the POS implement got separated into two different implements and they work great now.

    I'm in need of a land plane. I've seen quite a few different designs on here from fellow TBNers. I'd like to build one, I don't think its very complicated but I have no idea where to start. If I could find a kit with precut steel, I'd jump all over it.
    Carefull what you aim for, Aim for nothing and you will achieve it with amazing accuracy.
