I would like to share with how I grew my 1000 lb. SCRAP IRON WOOD LATHE.
I like to grow things BIG. Its a passion
So what does it take to grow something, well first you need some viable seed You can just find it laying around. so this is what \i started with.
Section of a Logging truck reach, pipe from a sawmill burner, piece a sawmill carraige, a piece of heavy angle iron, end of a camper trailer frame. Then add a key ingrediate
Railroad track steel. First step is to scarf the seed with an angle grinder, brushes, sanders to break through the tough outer coat.
Then all one needs is 20.20.20 imagination and some 20.20 vision, add alittle cutting heat and it will begin to sprout. Hand work and daily care is needed to keep the project growing
I hope you enjoyed this introduction, Next time I will show the growth stage of the Headstock. I will try to post new installments as the data on my cell phone allows, I usually run out before the end of the month. Will use wifi when I am in town as I am now.
This is the first time I have tried a blog and hope I got things right. I know some of you kind folk where interested in this project, not wood but used for wood, and is a dream to use, welcome to visit and make chips fly.
