    Shop Putterer

    Though I have for some time now being enjoying the posts on this forum, I have not posted anything myself. The following videos are an example of the kind of puttering I like to do:

    Hi Dan,

    Welcome!

    That link goes to your Facebook timeline, not to your videos. Now you've gone and piqued our interest; let's see those vids!

    What sort of puttering have you been doing? Anything interesting on your build horizon currently?

    Ken

    Thanks so much, Ken. I have changed the video links, so please let me know what you think! I have done some vehicle/quad/motorcycle/snowmobile rebuilding, built a few trailers, and have a go-cart in the shop right now for the grandkids. Thanks for your reply!

    Both links say "Sorry, this content isn't available right now".

    I have not, and never will, join Facebook so that may be the problem. I doubt that I'm alone in that respect.

    Now that you have your machine running and doing the job you intended for it to do It would be a really good idea to fabricate some guards to protect you and the machine's inner works from flying debris. A focus on safety should always be first and foremost on any machine build and doubly so on the more complex builds
    That said it is a nice build Probably a lot more fun than running down to the nearest Stil or Honda dealer and buying 3 5 ft long sickle bar hedge trimmers then mounting them to a framework.

    Video links work fine now.

    Very creative engineering. I've never even considered something like that hedge trimmer, but with the world's longest hedge in your yard, I can see where you'd need it!

    I'd feel better, though, with guards placed over all the many moving components. Belts, gears, chains, and blades. I'm a notorious "safety first" guy, but I've seen the results of the other philosophy up close. Very messy.

    Cool tool!!

    Looks beautiful! Very original too. With over 20,000 homemade tools listed here, I don't believe we've ever seen such an invention.

    I'm glad you shot the video before putting guards in place. That thing is mesmerizing to watch
