Finally finished the stabilizers (pics)

Unread postby Ontariofarmer on Wed Sep 15, 2010 3:08 pm

I started these quite a while ago, but things got busy and this and that. I had a chance just over a week ago to finish them.

WOW!!! what a difference.

It was easy for me......but you have to know that I have been welding and making stuff for about 30 years.
All the steel came from the local steel yard.

Just wondering what you made the adjustment tubes out of?? Was it anything special or just 2 tubes that fit inside of each other?
Wish I knew a welder......
