no previous part Part 1 of Combine series Part 2: Container frame »

I started building a wooden combine.

Below a set of pictures of the building proces of the chassis. I made this chassis out of 6 pieces. On the construction drawing it is one piece. I like to use more pieces. I have no pretensions to say that this is the right way, It is only my way. It is quite possible making the chassis out of one piece.

Thanks for watching

Nice work. I like your method of building up the chassis from different pieces of wood. I also prefer this method.

Looks good dutchy. Thanks for the pm, but alas I was just a city kid who spent summers on the family farm. It does look close enough to that Deere though. Maybe LJ richgreer could shed some insight on its resemblance. He is likely one of many implement aficionados around these parts.

I like your lathe sanding set up. Maybe a pic of it’s makeup? Did you build it?

Lol. I almost bought a disc sander the other day. Your pic reminded me I already have a lathe that is capable. I’ve only had it a couple months, my first lathe, and had forgotten all about using it like that. Thanks!

Thank you all for so many response.

Alas also richgreer didn,t know what type of John Deere it is. He is a man with knowledge of the JD’s before 1970.

About the disc sander; “If you send me your personal email address you will get some pictures from me”.
