I CONQUERED THE TIPPY DUMP!! b!TCHES!!

While sitting at work bored out of my mind, it hit me like a ton of bricks. I needed to mount the pivot point differently than how I was doing it. I got welding and came up with this.






I used the original pivot as a stop for the dump. It will only go to a certain point. Now I just have to rig up a way to keep it locked in place. That shall be Thursday night's challenge. I also went through my 3rd spool of welding wire. Seems like i'm blasting through this stuff!!

Put some duct tape over the gauge - Or better yet - Replace the high pressure gauge with a plug - High pressure gauges are useless!

Thanks! I'm happy I finally got it working the way I want it. Just some clean up to do and I should be able to prime and paint this weekend. Then the next item on the list is to get the fittings into the BK.

I'm thinking about lining the inside of the dump with either rubber, think bike innertube or spray it with truck bed liner. This will add to the grip as well as protecting the kettles from the bare metal. What do you think? I'm open to other ideas as well.

EDIT: Something like this.

Figured out how I'm going to lock it in place. I'm going to drill a 3/8in hole straight through the bracket and pipe and then put a locking pin through. This should keep it from tipping. See any reason why that wouldn't work?

yea. That should cut down on vibrations as well as protect the MT. I should have more updates this weekend. I'll be getting it painted.

Got the stand cleaned up, the lock pin has been installed. Albeit crooked... It's hard to line up 4 planes up with a hole. It sits level but the hole is cock eyed. Tomorrow is prime and painting. I got an update from my brother in law. He ran into more problems with the panel. I may just end up scrapping it and starting over. :-(

More Pictures!!






Edit: Talked some more to my BIL. He said that one of the switches hits the receptacle.. Going to order a new enclosure. I want to do this right.
