I used scrap parts to make a hanging gas tank for test running motorcycles. I just need a valve and hose barb on the bottom and it'll be done.

Very cool just needs a glass site tube on the side.

Wifey doesn't like the cat litter box in the house. I came up with a neat solution:





The passage goes through a kitty door under the counter in the bathroom. I wired the cat water fountain to a GFI under there too. (Door was taped open to get them used to it. Now it's hanging closed and they go through it like nothing!



People always wonder where the litter box is, because they can't smell it. Wifey is happy, so I'm happy

Made a dueling tree to prove to my son I am a better shot than him . Plates are AR500 steel to take high powered rifle rounds.

That looks great!

Do you have any pics of the back of the tree? What plans did you use?

Thanks,
Jack

Yes the plates swing when hit. Here are some more shots (no pun intended) Whole unit comes apart, plates lift off of tree, tree lifts out of base and legs slide out of base to make it easy to transport and store.

Awesome!

Is that downward deflection angle built into the base? Or is that just the camera messing with me???

Great job, very clean.

I thought about making something like this. My mental version has magnets inside the angle iron to keep the plates from slapin' around.
