    Being a machinist has its perks when the boss man lets me bring my toys and work on them. Put a clutch in this one this week. Faced the flywheel on the lathe. Put some grease in the pilot bushing then drove a steel rod in it and pushed the old bushing out.

    Sometimes I make miniature farm implements in my spare time when the milling machine is running and have my friend powdercoat them. This one is 8” wide.

    miniatures are always such a rad hobby to me. Takes a respectable amount of skill for most of it.

    Here’s another miniature I made. The first two pictures are of a real blade from the 1960’s I found and restored. It’s 5’ wide. I made the small one, it’s 8” wide. Used a 4/40 stainless bolt and tig welded the head up and made a miniature grease fitting for the blade. They both were powdercoat painted.

    These two are sitting on a shelf at work. Made another small box blade and gave it to our son, he plays with it outside.

    I have found all kinds of stuff I made on my computer at work, here's a trailer I made for our son. He had a plastic one and it rotted so I used the axles off of it to make this. The tractor he has hooked to it was one of mine when I was a kid. It's the only one that survived my childhood.

    I like the challenge. I don't sell them, I either keep them on a shelf here at work or let our son play with them. He thinks I can do anything, for now, lol.
