Sorry, haven't posted in awhile but today I'm going to get some aluminum plate to shine her up.(rather than expensive diamond plate) and I'm also going to weld, SOME MORE! I haven't got anything done in a little while so, hang in there!

Sorry, I haven't posted in a while. I've done a few things which I shall name etc. first, we ran out of data on phone(no wifi) second, mom slammed phone down on table out of anger, broken glass still it is hard to read or type on tapatalk or diygk.com... anyways, I added some fabrication with my 90 amp welder, second I got a Honda carb( for free! ) at my future workplace (hardware store) for the flathead. Third, took a trip to harbor freight, looked at 420 predator didnt have enough for it tho. Got wire wheel. Nozzle gel tractor supply spool of wire too. I actually am working, I just have a problem with posting...


This is taking too long

Maybe you could get a job delivering digital newspapers for a few extra bucks.

Tell your Mom to read this:

Those extra pants could have been useful...

Does your Mom still yell at you to put on pants before you go out to play?
