Damn, this "un-modified" TLS is getting expensive. I picked up my wheels from the powedercoater, WOW! Worth the $275.00 I think. Oh yeah, $200.00 for the wheels and $48.00 for all the new bearings and about $25.00 for the seals. :banghead They look so good and I dropped one and no scratch! Woo HOO!

He did the cush drive too, included prep, acid dip and such and bead blasting then a double coat. These are sweet, now I need some dang new tires. Woo HoO!

Click for big un's I used a cooked slider for scale as I don't smoke anymore and have lots of cooked sliders nowadays :coocoo

Sounds to me like "Someone" should start up a little side business. I've looked into this and to get started with small stuff doesn't require that big of an investment and it's not too terribly difficult. You should do some research. I thought about it but there's too many folks around here that do it. If no one was doing it then I'd be all over it.

Doug, those are damn sweet. Here's a little wheel project for the tard for you. :)

Eastwood makes a kit. So long as you can fit the part in the oven you can do it at home.

:laugh at you funny guys!!! You know what an oven over here looks like? You know those toaster ovens you get in the work cafe that you can literally put in 2 pieces of bread? Yup, that's the standard sized oven here.
Most families have a microwave/oven combo which is what we got. Our Xmas turkey was a very small chicken which is better than before we got the microwave ... a drum stick each - cooked seperatly :laugh

What till I get back to NZ though :devious I have my own shed you know

Seriously though ... not a bad idea :hmm I got a buddy with a whole 'workshop' that used to contain a couple pottery kilns ... hmm
