    I picked the steel up at a scrap yard that was advertising steel plate on Craigslist. The sheet I picked up started out as an 8.5'X32 and cost under $1000.

    The track torch is a really old one I picked up on eBay for cheap, it does the big stuff that won't fit on my CNC plasma better than the Handyauto torches.

    Yes I cast my own bullets. No one seems to be having a problem with the gun related threads so I'll start one on my casting machine.

    I like your build on the satalite stand
    Nice trap!, would it stop a 223?

    Tested some drop with .223. Stops it but with dents, so I don't use it for rifle calibers.

    The satellite is mounted on the wheel with 3 marks 120 degrees apart that line up with marks on a pad at the farm so I can move it and get a signal without having to adjust it at the farm.

    look up radiograph...there quite common in fabrication shops tracks are in sections u just use as many sections as you require..uses 110 ac for power to crawl along the track, theres a speed adjust depending on what your cutting..the "turtle" pulls the oxy/acet hoses with it down the track

    Yes, it's just an old track torch. Pretty heavy but works a little better than a HandyAuto with cuts that long.

    Here is a video of my buddy using it, you have to click on the photo to play it.



    You can also see the auto reset steel targets working.

    I have one that almost looks the same, very old, I have repaced 3 cords on it that I can remember.
    I have cut 8" plate with my track cutter.
