The stove has to be my favorite, traditional, really liked it a bunch.
The chair/car that he built last, that rocks!
Thank you for taking the time to post all of these, fascinating. I’ve worked in a machine shop but it was woodworking not metal.
As cool as it is, that stove just turned fuel into heat. The century old equipment in the shop could turn iron and steel into a stove
Fred Jr. said his Dad built two of the mobility scooters and due to the poor batteries available and the inefficient motors he used, nether of them worked very well
The rear motors were engaged with a lever that pulled them into the tires. They didn't lock on either, they had to be held.
The braking system was cam operated on the rear tires and had provisions on the lever to use it as a parking brake too.
Even if it wasn't the greatest thing ever, let's still give Sr. an A for effort
