    The belt driven contraption is an old lathe a friend gave me. It was all in pieces and I had to figure out how it went together. It works pretty good for what I need. The thing behind it is a saw blade sharpener that belonged to my Dad. I'd like to make a disc sander out of it.

    This is my setup for cutting fish mouths in the tube.

    I'm going to have 2 down tubes on the front. I'll try to get that done tomorrow.

    Thanks for the shop tour...I have a small lathe, very similar..handy thing to have. A disc sander sure would help for edge finishing flame or saw cut parts. worked in a tooling shop for yrs ,then retiring to a home shop with very few machine tools was a big change for me, but I learned, improvisation by necessity!

    nice work with the tube forming!

    Today was mostly a welding day. The main frame is getting close to being done. There will be brackets to figure out to attach stuff.

    I had bought a bead roller from Eastwood for this build. I never used one before, now is a good time to learn.

    So I broke out the CAD (cardboard aided design) and made a pattern.

    I cut it out of 18 ga. and marked off the beads. I used the 3/8" dies. It didn't go too bad but I wish the beads were bigger.

    All welded in. I also put in the tubes that have green tape on them. It takes a lot of grinding when there are multi. angles. It's starting to look like a little kid's jungle gym. The top tubes are for the front seat support. The bottom tubes are to raise the passenger floor.
