    Metal lathe carriage? stuck

    I've been needing to do some work on a lathe, nothing crazy. Found this one at work that I can use to do what I need. However, the main slide on the carriage (I believe that is the name of it, it's the larger handle I'm pointing to in picture) seems to be stuck, and I cannot seem to free it up...

    Century link crappy customer service question.

    Anybody have Century Stink and hate them? My wife made a payment 11/1/19 for the cycle of 11/18/19-12/18/19. She called to cancel service 12/9/2019.

    Single axle car trailer questions

    Hoping there's some people in here smarter than me, that can either steer me right here. I have this 3/4 ton military trailer that I bought, with the intentions of making an overland camp trailer out of. However, I've quickly realized it would be better for me, to have a flatbed trailer, to haul...

    Stock tank pool/spa build

    Been kinda wanting to do this for a while now, but have been busy with other projects like my samurai. After showing these pix to my wife, I convinced her to let me build one of these stock tank pools. I have a plan in my head to use it as a pool in the summer, and a spa or hot tub in the...

    Anybody got the hookup on retired road signs?

    As above, does anybody happen to have a hookup, or have any old road signs they don't want? No, I won't come take the road work sign in front of your house, trying to stay somewhat legal. I have this idea in my head to use them for my samurai flatbed decking. I know they're not real strong, but...

    Rant: My big feet

    Not that anybody cares, but I have size 17 feet. Finding shoes absolutely sucks. I've been searching and searching to find a set of yaktrax, or shoe spikes to wear on my shoes so I can do some hiking, and I can't find anything for a size above 13. Last year, I made my own pair out of some small...

    What should I deck my flatbed with?

    I chopped my samurai, stretched the frame, and had a guy build me this flatbed. Originally I had intended to just use 2x6" treated lumber, but have been kinda having second thoughts. Obviously whatever I use, it'll have to be UV resistant. Other ideas are sheet steel of some sort. Or possibly...
