Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

A good lesson for all of us. I know many here (including us) work too long after they have gotten too tired, or too cold/too hot and/or in poor lighting. We all need to be more careful.

That sucks. Just think of those good hours you will never get back to work on your Skoolie!

In all seriousness hope your hand heals quickly.

Ha, I've no clue but if I had to guess it would be China --or India maybe. Oh well, it was a found tool so at least I didn't have to pay "ta takes me chances"! I'll be as good as new in a couple of days--no cast, no crutches no biggie. Jack

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

We must suffer for our art.

I don't feel right if I'm not bleeding while working on vehicles. When my little niece comes over the first thing she does is count the bashes, slashes and scrapes on my hands.

Or in my case think I'm stronger than the chemicals I'm using and I don't need the proper equipment.

Re: 1935 Chevy school bus

Hello All, I spent so much time looking up the spelling of "chamfer" that I timed out and had to start over!!!!! I hate that!!!! I got a little more done on my door today. I doug out my chop saw and cut the pole which supports and rotates the door as it was way too long. I'll weld it back together once I determine what the right length is. I'll CHAMFER the edges of the mating surfaces and fill the CHAMFER with weld. I'll also press a piece of cold rolled steel into the void in the center of the pole for added support. Since the filler is just a bit larger in diameter than the void I'll freeze the rod just before pressing it into the pole as the cold seems to shrink the metal just enough to make it easily fit into the recieving part (pole).

I got as far as building the brackets for the pneumatic drive and doing a test fit. So far I am quite encouraged as the real deal matches the drawing and the model.. The proof of the pudding will come when I test fit the door. Way too late and way too cold to do that today sooooo. Too much fun .

[b] From left to right: lower bracket, upper bracket, steel rod, cut off lower pole, cut off upper pole with bearing (the thing that looks like a spool of grey thread).[b/]

[b] Test fit of pneumatic motor, lower arm and elbow. [b/]
