Antique Tractor Seat Shop Stools
I recently came up with a pair of antique tractor seat shop stools. One seat mounts on a car wheel base and swivels 360 degrees. The other seat bolts to the base of an old cream separator and remains stationary. I keep the cream separator-mounted stool in my shop. I haul the other swivel-style stool to car and antique tractor shows, where I can tip it on its side and easily roll it around.
  To form the 360-degree swivel, I welded a 6-in. dia. metal plate to the wheel rim, then welded a pipe to the plate. I bolted a rod to the seat. The rod goes inside the pipe to form the swivel. I machined grooves in the rod so I can add grease to lubricate the swivel. A washer on the pipe serves as a wear point. (Dave Dam, 111 N.
