Rolling Stands Handy For Tractor Restoration
"The first photo shows a rack I made to hold small parts while painting. It turns 360 degrees so you can paint and dry parts without touching them.
"The second photo shows a frame I use to work on garden tractors. After tearing a tractor down, I mount the frame in the stand to sandblast and paint. I just have to adjust the mounting brackets at either end to adapt to whatever tractor I'm working on. I actually assemble the entire tractor on the stand up until I put oil in the engine. Really works well because it's at a comfortable working height.
"Photo three is a rack I use to paint wheel rims. It's adjustable to any size wheels. It holds the wheel inside the rim and you can spin the rim around as needed to paint.
"Photo number four is a cart I made for tractor restoration. I've used it on 9 different models including Deere, Allis Chalmers, and Minneapolis Moline. The picture shows a Case tractor frame I'm working on. The back part of cart is from an old trailer running gear, flipped upside down with angles welded on for brackets to bolt to the rear axle. The front is tricycle wheels. I just revamp the brackets to fit different tractors."
