Al, i get all my best tools at the junkyard!!!people throw away good old american made stuff and buy new chinese crap !!!! ??? actually today i found a standard cutlery Bowie knife made in England around 1900, one on e-bay for $400 !!!! ;D
Do your local scrap yard sell by the pound? Its 15 cents a pound here. That is where I am getting most of my metal for my mill build. If I had time I would see if I could build a mill totally from the scrap yard.

Heres a few more pictures,i have the hood handles on, the steering chains on, fitting the td-18 fuel tank,and the newly cast platform chairs bolted on. I have a radiator core being built by Maine radiator in Auburn Maine,and today sawed out a big white oak to build the platform that the cab would bolt to. I am bolting down the platform green so it will dry in place.Heres a few more pictures.

There is a non-ferrous foundry in Franklin about 30 miles from me,Patriot Foundry,great people to do work with,young couple own it and are very accommodating,i brought parts in loose with no patterns,and they did great work.The only iron foundry left in N.H. is in Nashua. Years ago when i had iron castings made i used Buchanan brothers foundry in Chelmsford Mass.

If you need iron cast , CanDo in StAnne ,Illinois will ship across the country . send him a part or pattern . He will make the parts you need .  I watched him cast an exhaust stack  for a Case steamengine . It was about 65" tall .  He makes brake shoes for modelT fords on a standing order .  I have had a lot of parts cast myself . I think he does a good job . let me know if you need any info for CanDo Metals

The Lombard factory tried pretty hard to build things that wouldn't break ! ;D the shaft is solid 2 1/2" diameter steel and has some massive u-joints on each end. I have seen main axles spirlal twisted off and left in the woods and they are 3 1/2" in diameter! :o Don

Over the weekend i finished building the deck and then i finished bolting down the fuel tank.The floorboards in side the cab area are removable and the center panels over the driveline are also.I bolted and screwed this together out of White Oak we just sawed last week had about 500 board ft out of 1 log,i had a bunch of it sawn into 1 3/4" that i will stick and let dry to build the cab frame. Heres some pictures of the deck.

Buddy, My work is pretty crude compared to your restored equipment!  ;D Snowing and raining today drove to Lewiston Maine and picked up my radiator core. I plan on bolting the radiator together tomorrow,and then start building my front skis.
