    I have had two big pours done at my place since I took the reins. Two of the most exciting days I've had.
    Ironic how a complete hillbilly can get so excited about city stuff, LOL.

    This was going to be my recommendation if nobody had made it yet. Fantastic on a drill-press.
    Since I don't have a real drill-press, I keep mine sitting on the side of the mill table. And use it as...

    NICE! I'm in the middle of the exact same project. But, with steel and a welder. The results will be identical though.

    Just in case anybody is not aware: Zoro = Grainger.
    It is just their way of offering two different pricing tiers.
    Zoro is for the guys that shop for the best deal.

    The Namco is similar. Dead man brake on left. "Speeder" pedal on right (increases speed hydraulically, not engine RPM).

    Yea, it had the triple-mast. And was a factory gasoline powered unit. I wanted it pretty bad. Just couldn't pull the logistics off swiftly enough.

    Pretty interesting. I like the trike design. I like the large side wheels. I like that they don't pivot.

    I do have a pile of Mari studs. I run (ran, I'm pretty much dead in the water right now) a mix of Mari and JM.
