I saw this Toy Caterpillar project and just had to give it a try just before we sold the house and my shop was taken apart.
The plans showed it as a smooth caterpillar but had to add some fur just for the fun of it.
Here's where I got the idea and the know how.
Thanks ToyMakingDad

I ran it with a drill just to see how fast he could go.

I got him to run over at face book.

Just figured out how to put it on YouTube.
Now I really should do a better one but LOL be happy!!!

Here's the short blog on it.

Thanks Redoak49 I thought maybe it was just Dutchy.
I go to a new site and have to start learning how things work all over again.

That’s quite neat #4... Reminds me of myself trying to get out of bed.

You should put a glass cover over the bottom box so all you see is the caterpillar!

Ducky haven’t had anything new to show but noticed I hadn’t put this up as a project so.
Got a new base for my table saw built so may be on my way to building something in the not to distant future.
Still need to frame out for an air conditioner, as you know it maybe cold down under but the heats picking up in my neck of the woods.
Ducky I take it you can make the video work off of YouTube?

But seeing the cam work is half the fun of it me thinks.
You could be right, I would hate for OSHA get after me for having those cams where fingers can get into them. lol

If your neck is cold wear a scarf… Hides the hickies as well.

... air conditioner, as you know it maybe cold down under…

I am fortunate #4, I happen to have a solid brick house on a slab with the workshop under it (wasn’t by choice as I prefer timber houses… the bricks were already there so I didn’t remove them). In my workshop, in winter it seldom gets under about 14°C (which is still bikini weather) and in summer I only turn on a portable eggnishner when it gets over 26°C (in the workshop)... I have only used it about 4 or 5 times over the past 6 years I’ve been here even when the temp gets close to 35°-40°C outside… and even then, for about 1/2 hour.
My all year standard workshop uniform is a pair of shorts, CA glue encrusted blue top and thongs, the latter gets changed to boots when I have to kick the dog… just kidding animal lovers… when I work with heavy, toe crushing stock/machinery.

..... I would hate for OSHA get after me…..

Never thought of them do-gooders… I only suggested clear glass to hide the view.

..... Ducky I take it you can make the video work off of YouTube?

All I did was set up a Google account, sign onto YouTube with it and clicked onto upload (the up arrow in the top right corner). From then on it was learning by piecemeal as I only read one paragraph of the tutorial each day.

I got the up load just couldn’t figure out which link would make it work on LJ.
Not really interested in starting on YouTube at this point.
