Rolling "Tractor Seat" Shop Chair
Old tractor seats make nifty low-cost rolling shop chairs, says Verne Schlueter, Arlington, Minn., who mounted the seat and battery box off an old Deere tractor on a set of swivel caster wheels.
  “I keep it in my workshop where it makes a great conversation piece,” says Schlueter.
  He welded swivel wheel brackets onto lengths of 1/2 by 2-in. tubing, which he bolted to the bottom of the battery box. He repainted the seat frame and battery box and mounted decals and a small headlight on back.
  “I store odds and ends in the box and simply lift up the seat cushion for access,” says Schlueter. “The seat is actually off a Deere 49B tractor and was still in good shape. The light is just for decoration.”
