I knew you got trapped In The shop Randy ! Looks killer!

Going to paint or apply any finish to the raw aluminum?
😄

No paint. It's stainless steel outer sheeting with stainless rivets.
Only aluminum is the frame and expanded metal.
Can always change my mind later.

Built a 6'2 brake last Spring out of scrap metal. It worked well for the long pieces.

Randy, you got some mad fab skills bud! You do drawings first or just hit the job running at full speed and make it up as you go along? To me, it looks like you had an engineer send you drawings and you went off of that, it looks that damned good!

I need to build a metal brake some day soon too. Just a small one about 2 foot wide, may need to ask you for some extra pics of yours so I can copy the design!

A screen shot from my ring doorbell at my gate. It's a power gate so I need to fire up the tractor and clear by it.

Yeah more coming Friday night. No rain in the forecast for several days. We definitely don't get as much snow as you do there. I 90 is a mess. Chains required on all vehicles except all wheel drive.

What's funny is the roads are just wet down in the city areas but there are crashes everywhere. People here are stupid. That's why they vote Democrat.
