  1. Re: The infamous Chuckitt on JunkYard wars

    I haven't been around lately, but Buster sent me an e-mail about this.

    I finally had time to watch this. They didn't win, but they sure did good.

    Papee,

    It's GREAT to know that you're back in the saddle again. ;thumb;

    I'm not sure that I understand the comment about having to get used to the new camera.

    Looks like it works just fine...

    Bandit,

    Those are old photos. At that time, I was trying to use a starter/generator on the front pull rope pulley. It didn't work out very well, as others can attest to. :eek:

    Bandit,

    Here is what it may look like in its self contained state. Yeah, it's running there. It was VERY loud with no mufflers.

    Bandit,

    When you mentioned the self contained thing, I "assume" that you were talking about a 4A084 with all the cooling shrouds, flywheel, etc., as it was used by the government. I have seen a...

    Good points !

    Everyone, just remember, you have a build budget, an operating budget, and you need to keep your expectations realistic.

    Buster,

    She took it gracefully, and didn't kick him out of the house. It was as much a mistake on her part as his. ;garfield;

    MY mistake. I guess that I was thinking about the way that I built EMT tree stands in the past.

    Bandit,

    If I'd gone the EMT way, I'd probably also "cheated" like you did. Flattening EMT, and wrapping it part way around the piece that it's joining to is pretty quick, and strong.

    Flathead,
