That's pretty cheap. Good find Beal. I think I'm going to order a 12" piece. Once I receive it, I will measure the I.D. and see if it really is 1.000.

Should be close. Its not like pipe, where the ID could be different throughout the whole piece.
This stuff DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) should be consistent clean through.

Itd be neat to see the process to make this stuff.


Ide like to get some for the other thing, but I think Im gona try to find some thick wall pipe and bore it out.

Here's a little teaser of what my wheels will look like.  I'm glad I went with the wide rim.  I'm still waiting on a tube to mount the other front tire and the placed goofed and powder coated my rear rims the wrong color so they have to re-do them.  They should be ready in a few days.

Oh @TheBeal, I have good news about the DOM tubing you spec'd out for my knuckles.  It will work perfectly.



Remember the other little crack I found in my frame.  While I was fixing that I decided to add in these little 1/4" x 1/4" x 2" pieces to better connect the frame rails to the tranaxle mounting plate.  I don't know who invented these little magnetic welding clamps, but he deserves unlimited PBDGs.  I picked these up on sale at TSC in a package with two pairs of vise grips for like $10.  Well worth the price.

Looks great Carl! I'd like to get myself a couple of those magnets as well sometime, haha.

Glad to see it will work!
glad to know Im not just a pretty face!err... ugly...face.....


I have some nice magnetic squares. Mag-Mate is the brand, and they are Made in USA! They are like $10-15 each, but they hold really well.
I recommend them to anyone who wants to splurge on welding magnets.

I stumbled across this one on wheelhorseforum.com  Looks like he has some kind of custom front end too.  I'm definitely going to draw some inspiration from this one.

Nice! You could do some pulling with this one! Yesterday I was driving through town and saw two cubs that were set up for pulling in front of someone's garage, and since I am getting a cub sometime I should get to know the guy so I can learn how to set up mowers for pulling

Just to clear up any confusion. I stumbled across pictures of this tractor, not the tractor itself.

My seat came today, so I decided to borrow some tires and get this thing mocked up on all fours.  I really like where this build is headed.

Is that where the gas tank was stock? Is there some welding going on around it?

Those fronts look funny on such a small mower. Small but super heavy I guess

Really love the look of that Wheel Horse. Should be interesting what the front end looks like once you are done with it. Have fun!

The answer to both of those questions is yes, but the gas tank is completely dry if safety is what you're getting at. On Monday I had a pretty hot torch heating up the hub under a full gas tank on Ol' Red. I exercised some caution though.

I like the big paws up front... looks less like a rat and more like a bobcat!

@MightyRaze "Bobcat" that's funny lol

@TheBeal The factory dash/gas tank is cast aluminum and most of the paint has worn off of it leaving a gray appearance.

Those front tires look big as hell... but I did see that tractor on the wheel horse forum & it is definitely a cool inspiration.

you can use this too if you need more inspiration.... tongue

good one @mrshaft696 Razz

Despite what some of you guys think I love these front tires. I can think of three tractors that have pretty large front tires that look awesome(sears killer, mutt, heavily modified LT4000). Isn't the idea to get our tractors looking more like an ATV and less like a tractor? I do have some plans to level out the chassis and get the front axle forward though.

<--------- And don't forget the future Kal-El there to the left.  May be just a frame today.  Same tires look so LARGE on that wheel horse.  Just don't realize sometimes how small those things were but packed quite a punch.
