  1. What's the Deal ?

    27°? Brrrr. It was 45 Saturday morning. It's kind of similar here, always the coldest right before sunup. We get pretty wide swings this time of year. Not quite as much as you do...but enough to notice. What's the elevation in Deming?
  2. Twisting Up DIY Coils ?

    I was waiting for that You're gonna hate that thing before it's done...if ya don't already!
  3. Nuggetshooter Outing Video

    Agreed! I'm convinced...maybe Bill will let me attend the next outing. Nice video Mike. Very professional
  4. Twisting Up DIY Coils ?

    This is way over my head...but fascinating. I wouldn't even know what to do with a oscilloscope! Keep it up

    What happened to your artist? Give a me a rough idea of what you want on it...and I'll draw something up.
  6. What's the Deal ?

    It is a bit warm for this time of year Homey. The weather station says we're at least 10° above average! It makes me wonder if we will be slammed by a cold winter...when it finally arrives.
  7. New buggy!

    My friend James and I went halves on a buggy for desert travel. Now that cooler weather has returned to AZ...time to get out and play
  8. UTV's and dust

    Post a pic! Most of us are avid outdoorsmen...
  9. UTV's and dust

    The dust is a bitch. Removing the windshield helps the most, but not very comfortable when its cold out. Keeping that area dust free also results in less dust in your air filter and clutches. BBD????
  10. What a Rig!

    Learned something new this morning! Everybody back home just calls them SUSV's because thats what the Army calls them. Not as many of them around anymore. Mostly HEMTT's and now STRYKR's I spent a LOT of time on Ft Richardson outside of Anchorage as the warranty rep for OshKosh. I performed warranty recalls on hundreds of HEMTT's. Which mostly consisted of removing a grease zerk from the streering column and securing the harness with super huge zip ties to keep it from chaffing on the column. Ahhh...the good old days. Easiest job I ever had. The hardest part was tracking each unit down. Amazing how the Army could loose a frickin HEMTT...
  11. What a Rig!

    Its called a SUSV An acquaintance I knew back home in AK, with more money than sense, bought one of those dang things. He spent more time fixing it than using it. They work okay in a some terrain...but rocks of any sort demolished it in short order. The idler bogeys were particularly susceptible to damage. He did get it stuck in a swamp once that I know of....cost him 7 grand to get a D10 out into the boonies to extract it from the goo. He sold it shortly after that. When off road....lighter is better.

    Front sand tires for a quad. Lightest I could find for a big size. 21" tall and wide for flotation.

    Finished the welding on the legs today. Couldn't help mocking it all up for a quick picture.

    Cool beans. Been busy on another project the last few days and haven't had time to do much. I did get my tires mounted up and hopefully will get the landing gear painted and assembled today.
