you can make very nice things with some experience!
I would just get a sheet of steel and start filing shapes into it, this way you can learn very fast and cheap...


Well my problem is that a sheet of steel will cost me about $20, just for a 12x12" piece... I will definitely practice some more.

Possibly, but I don't exactly have the time right now. I wish I did, but I don't...

I'm not exactly sure what it's made out of...

You could straighten the edges up a little though, they look kinda crappy. Tape some sandpaper to a bench and sand it down that way; it's a lot easier if you haven't had practice with files. Finish the curvy parts the opposite way, and the imperfections in them will wear down gradually and evenly.

Well, it's the thought that counts (until they get older)...... then the price becomes their primary focus! :lol:

Fnord, I used my bench grinder to smooth it a bit more and it actually took on a better shape. I didn't have time to take a picture, but when I gave it to my girl friend her face lit up and I don't think I have ever seen a happier person.

Those old one-lungers were built strong, man! My Dad picked up an early-70s Craftsmen once, had a three-speed, IIRC. Never did get the deck working, but my brother and I had fun dropping it into third and doing wheelies on it. I really wish he hadn't taken it for scrap. I was thinking of dropping a bigger motor in it and using it for the street fair tractor pull.

I still have a sense of humor, I thought it was pretty funny.

Any *nix whizzes in the house?

I'm fixing to install a couple of cheap SSD's in RAID0 and need a way to backup and restore compressed disk images. So far, what I've got is to run the command:

Code: Select all
dd if=/dev/sda bs=512 | bzip2 -f > /mnt/backup/backup[date].img


To do a block level copy of the disk and compress it to a file on my backup drive. Then, to restore it, I assume I would:

Code: Select all
bzip -dc /mnt/backup/backup[date].img | dd of=/dev/sda bs=512


To restore an image.

Do you have any quicker ways?

Pictured below is the first command running as we type. At 2.4 MB/s (which is variable at the moment since I'm using HDD's and dd will read slower as it progresses on the platter, and will probably be a little faster on a SSD), it'll take about 4 hours to copy a 32 gigabyte disk.

yes they are build to last, not like walmart junk, i had deck problems with mine, so i parked the deck and just use to do yard work with , my neighbor needed help building a retaining wall and needed a way to move the brick from his truck to where the wall was and wheel barrel would be way to heavy, so we loaded between 1200-1250 lbs on a trailer and mine pulled no problem, his john deere couldnt budge the trailer, and his is a newer deere 23 hp , mines only 14 nd works better, glad my uncle gave me it,

i love my tractor
