These guys can really swing a sledge hammer. The chisel holder has absolute confidence in his mate's accuracy.

The new folded chassis rails are accurate to a millimeter.



And for those interested in an alternator rebuild. Even better than the chassis extension.


And one right up Swishy's alley. C'mon Swishy get a life and scrap that boring grey!


And finally another amazing demonstration of the art of the sledge hammer.

We have tradesmen, mechanics and engineers but these guys are artisans,




And this is where all those sledge hammers come from. Note the safety boots!


And who said you can not repair sidewalls? I am just astounded by the resourcefulness of people who have nothing to get the job done.

No questions asked about whether you should or should not weld or drill chassis rails here!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Amazing eh. What makes me wonder, is that a lot of this is exactly what would have happened here in Oz many years ago. Now we kind of laugh at third world and the associated safety standards, or lack therof.. But the talent, and the skil, working with bugger all to make things work, never ceases to amaze me. In Vietnam a while ago, there is a bloke on the side of the road brazing up the cracks in tops of pistons to go back in the truck . The broken down truck is on a hill, the fellas had one sleeve out of it sitting on the road, with another ready to go back in. Just no dramas, make it happen, and off we go again.
I know we can't go backwards, but I do wonder about our lofty attitude over here in a first world country. I think a lot of these so called third world countries would run rings around us for skill, work ethics, practicality, and sheer capability...
Dunno.
In the words of the Great Swishy, 'Wot sez you"?

Its easy to find out why...vested interests have got state governments to bring in laws to force you to pay to get anything done,and prevent you doing anything yourself........Im looking at drainage for my shed......anything in Queensland to do with water since about last year is "regulated work"required to be done by a licensed plumber .......massive fines for something as simple as a downpipe underground ......any buried roofwater pipe is regulated work,and costs thousands for a drainer to put in a few meter of 100mm white plastic pipe.......fines in the region of $100,000.

Doesn’t roof water go out to a hole in the street gutter?

That wheel video brought back memories from 40 plus years ago. The forklift tyre company I worked for also had an engineering shope specialising in making wheels mainly for the forklifts but also did them for trucks and were one of the early private companies who bought in blank super single rims and made them up to suit different trucks.
To make a dual wheel even back then they preheated the steel naive plates first then stamped them in the 250 ton press. Next day they were machined to fit the blank rims then the stud pattern was drilled along with the countersinks to suit. So far very similar to that video. The main difference was they would place the rim on a turn table and centre it then drop the naive plate in place and using an air operated ram would then extend it, place a plate on the end and retract it to hole the naive plate firmly in place and level. Then the MIG welder was started and the turn table went round and that was it. Final step was a coat of red metal primer applied using an electro static spray gun which with the wheels sitting on a metal plate which was earthed and a positive charge put into the spray nozzle the paint literally went around the rim and coated it ob both sides at the same time. Flip the rim over and do the inside.

That video shows a production line not as the caption says "making A wheel." I bet all the machinery they are using came from the UK possibly up to 100 years ago.

Maybe I should have had the 500 x 23 wheels for my 1927 Morris Commercial tandem drive made in India instead of searching for 35 years to find originals! By the way I still need another ten for my 1926 model. Please drag them out from under your bed and sell them to me!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,
