    Benchmark abrasives on Amazon is great for grinder consumables. I have a slew of their flap discs, 4.5” and 6” cutting wheels

    Nothing worse than a fat grinder that makes your hand hurt.

    Mounted my intercooler today. Welded some 2" 3/16 thick angle iron between the frame rails. Also had to make a new brace for the hood latch support that I bolted to the top of the intercooler. Super simple setup but I'm happy with the results.

    Not my jacket, again???? I just can’t have nice things.

    The original hole was about 2 years ago about a month after I bought it. I got to remember to wear my leather apron.

    It's been over a span of 34 years, mostly it's being in a hurry and not wearing PPE thinking "it won't happen to me.....again" :D

    I was making a special wrench thingy for a customer today. Don’t ask cause I don’t know either. All I had were pictures to go by, not a drawing.

    Yeah me and my boss man can't figure out what that is for either. Makes no sense but the customer is always right :D:rolleyes::confused:

    The socket is 1 1/16" with a 3/4" drive, the extension welded on the other end is 3/4" drive.

    Maybe it's a pin that goes into a hole on a flywheel of some sort? Socket goes onto center nut, pin goes in a hole along the radius. Give it a bump with an impact to get it spinning without putting too much stress on the center nut and rounding it out
