plowking740 added a topic in On the Workbench: Big Rigsback to buildingits been a long time since i did any building and a few years ago, after talking with Dad, I decided to scratch build a gravel crusher I decided to model a Cederapids 555 Super comander which he had at one time and still has lots of the manuals and pictures that i could use for refrence. it has taken me 3 winters of work to get to this stage and then this spring I added a Mack Dm600 to pull it and give me some proper hight and dimensions.
The more i build, the more that I 'rebuild'. the hopper is in its second design as well as the Detroit 8v71 that is the power unit. and i think there will be more in the future.
After seeing some of the projects here i can tell that i have a long way to go but thanks to this site i have lots of ideas.
