Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

that's what im talking bout.....im still taking a paint sample of my IH red to the case/IH dealer to compare before my final decision...
when I get this truck on the road id like to make a road trip to the case/IH plant in Racine Wi and get a pic in front of their sign...do the plant tour and all...
would have to see if I can talk dad into it....that would be a long rd trip from here though for dad...about a 10hr drive one way...dad turns 84 this year and im not sure hed be up for a 20hr road trip

Mongo

I'm digging what you are doing to the truck for your dad.

I'm going to reveal my ignorance of available cutting disk/blades.

In post 97, you have a cutting disk on your angle grinder? I've never seen one like that. What is it, and how long do they last?

Thanks

NC

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

thanks nut
that blade is a lenox metalmax diamond blade....a buddy of mine turned me on to those...I was going thru metabo style blades like crazy..mostly from my grinder hitting the floor and breaking them...abrasives are dust makers, get smaller with use etc etc....
the lenox blade dia stays the same with use...its much easier to cut a straight line because theres no blade flex unlike a abrasive that will walk off in who knows what direction...they work great on sheetmetal...not so much on thicker stuff...they are slower cutting than a abrasive...ive cut a lot of metal with mine and its paid for itself several times vs the cost of abrasives..i will still use the abrasive for thicker cuts though..I got mine at lowes....he got his at Fastenal...heres a link..they had quite a selection of sizes....I went with the 5" for $19.98
https://www.lowes.com/pd/LENOX-Metal...eel/1000181275

this is what it looks like when new

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

while putting the heater assembly back together I found this date on the heater core...possibly the first time anyone has laid eyes on it in the last 60yrs...thought that was interesting....

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

this kinda goes along with my Columbus build. .I found a 1959 IH toy truck...made by the true scale company....I'm gonna take it apart and paint it to match Columbus. ..its as close as I could come to finding a 57 IH...the 59 has the different grill and 4 headlights...a 57-58 has single headlights...

Re: Columbus..the 1957 IH 4x4..

haha...I hope not...mom and dad couldn't figure out why they couldn't get in my shop the other day..mom did ask if i had something in there that i didnt want them to see...i kinda brushed it off....they have a key to the back door and I had the door blocked so it wouldn't open....time will tell....the more I have to do at my shop the harder the secret will be to keep...
