Re: Cold morning

With very cold weather and no outside work happening it was time to upgrade my torch carrying machinery.
the axle & wheels are from a 1920 Star automobile, the 2nd hub cap was from a Whippet auto. A few of you will remember this style cart when you were very young.

Re: New Toy

Bill, when we get to the UP this summer to escape the Texas heat, will need to stop by your place to see your "stuff "
Do you have any single cylinder hi & miss engines for sale ?
