I'm picking up your goodies from the coater this afternoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wow. 1 penny? give me a link and make it ia 1 hour auction! lol .... how do you feel about making ammo boxes? 5-8" wide, 10-12" long, and 8-10" high? locking, hinged or 2 latch top. not sure you could do it cheap enough though.
Tomorrow or Sunday for me to come by?
I'll let you know something as soon as I do!
Nothing to see here. Powder coater was supposed to call and didn't. A bit disappointed, but I'll give him the benefit of doubt this time.
I kept myself entertained in the garage putzing around with small projects thinking I'd be building freshly coated panniers.
I play around with scrap .080" 5052 aluminum to make the next gizmo.
More welding on the latest gizmo.
...my low-budget, sit-on-my-butt tungsten grinding set up!
1/4 hp, single phase motor out of an old HVAC indoor unit. Now I have a guard and a place to keep pointed-up tungstens for the inevitable crashes.
Bummed about the coater, but tomorrow is another day.
ooops, sorry - missed that - I'm using .080" 5052.
Very nice, very nice.
One down, one to go!
That is slick. Good work.
FYI, I'll be by to pick them up for JVB tomorrow. No need to tell him, it'll be a surprise. . ..
That looks really cool! Nice work!
Jim VB is a lucky man...
Now you are talking! I have 20mm ammo cans on my bike with the lids secured virtually identical to these. The tradtional loose lids with padlocks always seemed like a hassle. I don't want to worry about dropping a padlock or my pannier lid while I am scrambling to get my raingear on along side the highway...
Totally jealous of your shop and your level of talent.
I'll be there tomorrow afternoon! I can hardly wait to see them!
PS Mr. NoVa Rider, I thought you were my friend!
Footman loops or no?
If yes, on top or on bevel?
I think no for now. I want to see how the bags line up, and if there are alternate mounting points on the mounting frame. I can always add them later!
Looking very nice Kirk, you should be proud of your work!
Thanks, Jim! If the customer is happy, so am I!
