Thought I'd try and stick some pics up, of a recent, and ongoing project.
Making some changes to a machine I've got, adding an axle, stretching the chassis and other bits along the way.

Here's some pics of the axle I'm using, coupling it up to an old Volvo A25 A frame.

Wheels on for a try out, and got the machine in the workshop to offer it all up and get the chassis work under way.
The axle is not in its running position in some of the pics, but I've not got much space in the workshop now! So it's had to stay there, but was a useful prop

Oh, and for the first time ever, I've been able to load more than one pic on a post.....strange, but I ain't complaining

Chassis all tacked in place, squared and then got the axle in its running position to start the A frame anchor point

Thanks, converting the machine into a muck spreader, and need a bit more room on it.

Yes Gra, local place has a 3m brake press, they formed the channels for me. I may well trim a bit off the chassis, but had them 3m long, as I couldn't be sure quite how long they needed to be......making it up as I go along, as usual

It's a self steer for an artic trailer, 9t SAF axle, eBay find....

No not rained off, I've not done anything on the machine for a couple of months, those pics are from June, just thought it might interest some of you ? I will see if I can put a few more on of a bit more progress......

Looks like a fair drop of rain coming tonight though, I've been flat out today getting a few jobs tidied up before they get ruined!

Aye it's fair lashing it down here ATM and blowin' like fook. Been dry all day and the ground was drying nicely, with the wind
Knackered again now

That is a very nice axle Boyo ..... dear item or you steal it

Some of the best projects are 'ad hoc' James .... as we both know, although I dare say, that like me, you put huge amounts of thought into it, before striking a blow

Those some of your 'special' wheel rims again on there, or off the shelf jobbies
