Been really cold out in the shop as some of you may have noticed so just a hit and miss with building the well drilling rig.
I really wasn’t planning on building it but needed a drill chuck for my new to me Shop Smith and found one over at Grizzly and while I was over there found the well rig and the the Belly Dump Trailer plans with a deep discount so got both of them and the chuck was paying the shipping so It don’t get much cheaper than free shipping on both plans. lol
So now all I’ll need is a truck to pull them with and Dutchys started a blog on that so how cool is that.
Here’s my start on it, just making all the little tanks and fans right now.
The drilling tower looks like it will take a lot of study to figure it out but that’s what it’s all about so looking forward to it.
The wood for the deck is ??? maple, it was a nice paneled cabinet door at one time.
You can see the bead board look it had on the bottom.
I ran out in the shop and took some quick pictures of what I’ve made so far.
Their just sitting about where they will go and I noticed the fans on it’s side but just wanted to give a look at it so far.
The compressor tank is part broom handle and part porch umbrella handle.
I knew I had scrounged them up for something, now we know what it was. lol
Till next time stay warm and you down under stay cool.
