I read these posts, look at the pictures and I think, how on earth does he figure this stuff out? This stuff is amazing! You're an incredibly gifted guy, ProZ. WC1

Got more done on the stomp shear truck this weekend.
Rolled on it's own wheels for the first time today.
Got a bunch of cleaning up to do & a fair amount of welding. Still have to build the tray or table to catch the sheared material & an extended gauge.

Well it fits in Photoshop. Hope it fits in the real world.

Got a little further.
Mounting pads welded in the corners.
Frame for the tray to catch the sheets as they are sheared.
Got a start on the extended gauge.
Most of the gussets are welded in.
Lock for the foot pedal.
Pretty close to tear down, clean up & paint.

Thanks BP. I think I'll be done soon.
Jeff took a couple weeks vacation to add some upgrades to the Camaro. We are ALL keepin' a close watch on what he's up to. :D :D :idea:

I 'hink he's going to run better this year ZAP.

I finally got the truck for the shear done, but for a few punch list things. Now I just have to get it mounted under the shear.
Got some paint on it. Hard to believe it's still March. One good rain & it'll be time to mow.
Image

Painted it a light blue & ivory hammered finish to match the shear
Image

Once the shear is bolted down I'll print out & apply the rulers for the guides. Still have a fence to make.
Image

Still have a rubber pad to glue & screw to the foot pedal.
Image

The table frame bolts on. It has to go on after the shear is mounted to clear the shear's linkage. I'll put an aluminum top on the table when it's all bolted together for the last time.
