Dunner doesn't do snow; only sunshine... and I'm busy right now with 90°s of it.

P.S. get some high temp gloss black paint.

Edited my last post. Stopped reading the thread before you posted that you found my other post. Thanx to Sarah W. for passing it along to you.

Seems to me that there's a design flaw on those stove top grids which allows the grids to fall right thru the holes in the "grease pan". Those rubber grommets don't hold up very long.

Some high temp black spray paint is in my future to improve the looks of my "gerryrigged" design for maintaining height and levelness (sp).

Thinking outside the box here

How about contacting the local career ed center or high school voc. ed. teacher and see if there's any interest in starting a "basic electronics" club or a metal fabricating club? Meet once every two weeks after school hours at the school's shop and "learn um" so basic electronics or metal fab.

Building an elementary circuit
Creating a basic transistor radio
Creating a basic circuit tester
LOL That exhausts my thoughts on what to "learn um"

Good idea, but I'm just a shade tree machinist. Learned in high school. I get by, but still make some mistakes.

Are you capable of turning some steel wheels for my under construction steam locomotive? I could order the round blanks for you and have them shipped for you to turn for me. I will send copies of the dimensions and tapers for the flanges.

I could turn the wheels, but they would be solid unless you drilled decorative holes. Tapers and me don't get along. A tapered ream would be the best way. I guess I could try. Aluminum would be easier. I'd have to have some way to mount them. What about a straight shaft and set screws to hold them on. BTW, how big would they be? Pics?

You interested in duplicating your "beefed up" hitch mounts for a fellow 1311'er?

It is difficult to do without having the vehicle to take measurements and trial fit. Keep in mind that I made a special adapter to mount the arms to the drop hitch. The fitted length is critical. I have mine fitted neutral; neither pushing up or down. That way, any flex will be shared with both the hitch and the arms.
